Shoeless.

Tuesday, January 27, 2009

So I'm not going to get the shoes. They just aren't that practical and although my shoe wardrobe could definitely use some spicing up, that money could be put to much better use. 

I still want something special for my 30th, and for our 5 year anniversary, and for well just being me. Since I don't do jewelry as was discussed here, this limits me to shoes and bags. 

Enter my future favorite baby.

The Bottega Veneta "Veneta Hobo" with matching wallet.  

Seriously, this bag could not be more "me" if it was actually made for me. It is a great size. The chocolate could be worn in every season. It's timeless and I love that only those in the "know" will actually know who it is by. 

I  have been going around and around in my head between this and a classic Channel baguette. However, once I went to Barneys and saw this baby up close, today I knew I was making the right decision. This bag completely suits my lifestyle and I can see myself carrying it everyday. 

Btw you all agree with me on the shoe front. Or at least 52% of you do. They are a work of art but for a mummy with little or no social life they would just be wasted. Those shoes belong on a girl like Carrie Bradshaw (yes, in my mind she is real) who could actually let them see the light of day and not just the inside of her closet.

Thanks for all your help, and please let me know what you think of the bag vs all the others out there. May is still a long way away.......

The bag is gorgeous, and so much more usable than the (lovely) shoes. This is a classic style, you'll have for years - BUY IT! And if, on the offchance, you do get bored with it after a while I'd be happy to take it off your hands :-)

I love the Intrecciato BV shoulder bag! It's simply divine, its leather is so soft and perfect, but with a price of over 1000 GBP I'd rather have two LVs! I get bored easily with bags...Ciao. A.

OK... the bag choice helped me get over my girly strop that you are not going for the shoes! There are impractical and if you're sure they wouldn't spend much "out of closet" time then it would be a fashion moment waste. I love the bag.. its of the moment but classic enough in style to last forever. Be an Investonista YM!
p.s. Of course Carrie is real - she is our social butterfly alter ego and possibly our other sister! x

Can I change my vote back to "yes" for the shoes???

While you might not be able to wear the shoes forever, you'll want to. The bag...I don't know if I'd love it in 5 years. Or even 3 years.

I'll think about some others to suggest...the great birthday bag challenge of '09 is on!
