Papa's Got a Brand New Bag

Okay, well, "Papa" doesn't have one...I do. And it's not as much as I "have" a new bag, as much as it's I "need" a new bag. (Need and want are totally relative terms, btw. When I speak in relation to bags, they're interchangeable. I'm glad we've cleared this up.)

I've seen/read a lot about Foley + Corinna bags over the past year and finally made my way over to the site. Well, now I'm in love with this bag:



I've been un-seriously (yep, just made that up!) looking for another bag for a while. I currently carry a bronze Coach satchel, which I love, but, even though I love me a good satchel, sometimes I just wanna sling something over my shoulder. This bag will give me the flexibility to both hoist it delicately over my forearm and carry it like a lady AND sling it over my shoulder when I'm too lazy to be delicate and lady-like.


{It does this too...pret-tay nice, eh??}

So, here's the reason I'm sharing this INCREDIBLY IMPORTANT PERSONAL BUSINESS of mine...which color should I get??? I love the camel, but I always get a bag in neutral with the practicality argument that it will go with everything. But, I also kinda love the purple and it would be something different for me. After all, purple is the color of royalty, and that's what I practically am: royalty! (That's what it means when someone calls you a "royal pain in the ass," right?) Eat your heart out, Kate.

Now imagine if you had been blessed by the Gods and were me--which would you pick?? Please leave your thoughts in the comments section, as this is of the UTMOST importance, mmkay!!!???

Purple

I ventured out and got a pink Kate Spade bag and it was liberating. I'm still waiting for it to arrive at my doorstep, but I know it will be liberating. I think that shade of purple will transition to other seasons quite well if you're worried about the longevity of it.. very cute!

Tough question and I like where your heads at. But, I need to know more about your wardrobe before I can answer. If you wear a lot of neutrals, the purple will be great. If you always wear pops of color, I'd choose the camel bag.

That teal bag with the gold strap has been fun, but I can only wear it on days I wear black, grey or white. Fortunately, you probably have lots of backup bags. Maybe I just talked myself into purple for you. Now, it's back to you for a 5 paragraph essay comment tomorrow.
