Monogram Bag

Ah, my love for yellow continues with this recent purchase.

I remember this bag from my days of after-school retail at Hess Department Store. Didn't think the style was very interesting back then but some twenty years later, I have to have it. I tried to bargain with the little Bedford Avenue Street Vendor but she wouldn't budge. She wanted $8. I pulled out $7 thinking that she would take it when she saw the money. She wanted $8 and was willing to wait. I walked away but I couldn't resist the call of the bright yellow Liz Claiborne monogram bag. I went back and gave her the $8.

It was worth the extra dollar.

Sometimes Taking Photo is Better than Making a Purchase

Over the weekend, I saw this gorgeous fall bag for sale on street. It spoke to me in its texture and colors. However the price was a bit more than I wanted to spend so I took a picture. Actually, I took three pictures. Now reflecting back on the bag, I made the right choice. It is a great bag but not for every day given what I carry each day and not unique enough for the collection. And as my friend said, sometimes taking a photo is better that purchasing.
