I popped into mall yesterday to check out Gap denim biker jackets (Angie, what are you doing to my NAS diet!!!) and of course I could not pass Danier store without checking it out. This time I decided to check the bags.
I am not a bag lady. I can appreciate how a bag adds to the outfit but I am too lazy to switch my stuff from one bag to another every day. Saying this I wanted to add a white bag for summer (and maybe beyond) because I am on the white kick lately.
Danier has several nice white bags but this one called my name. It has a soft leather, minimal hardware and simple satchel design which really spoke to me. It was also on sale from $225 to $99 so it came home with me.
Alas when I came home I realized that it will not work for my lifestyle. I carry lunch to work every day. I don't like to carry a handbag AND a lunch bag so my handbag should be big enough to fit my lunch - and this white beauty is not <sob>
I am returning this bag with broken heart. It does not work for work and I don't have a need for a new bag outside of work. Instead I am thinking that maybe my ideal white bag is a tote where I can fit my lunch easily?

Then I went to Costco for groceries and found these beautiful Hilary Radley silk shirts there. The fabric is gorgeous, washable and wrinkle resistant and colors are vibrant without being neon brights. I could not decide between blue and orange so I bought both to try at home. They did not have size L so I hoped M may work.
Well it did not. There is a very slight pulling across the chest and armholes are cut too high. I hope they may get size L this week so I am going to check them out but size M will go back.
Now in case size L is there and fits well - what do you think of the color and style? I don't have anything in this orange shade - is it too bright for me? Also this blue is lighter than cobalt I usually like, it is closer to royal blue I think so I am not sure it works for me either.
What do you think?
