I don't want to be a downer or anything, but winter has been on my mind. Fall always disappears so fast, and suddenly it's sub-zero temperatures, trudging through slush, and windchill factors (this video is, to me, completely appropriate for Hallowe'en week -- it is so scary). For the past few weeks I've been obsessed with finding a bag with a zipper or some kind of closure, because it is so awful to open one's purse and find everything inside covered in snow.
I decided to get a vintage Dooney & Bourke bag. That these bags have seen a bit of a resurgence over the past few years, and have become desirable (incidentally, Toronto, I Miss You Vintage has a nice collection of them for sale). They are weatherproof, and they have a preppy / collegiate look that I love. I bought this one from the great VerseauVintage on Etsy (such a wonderful shop, and she had it ready for shipping within half an hour of my purchase!). I can't wait until it arrives.
Too bad for you, snow! You're not hitching a ride home with me. I pretty much hate you.
