PAPER OR PLASTIC

Jan 18, 2011

Fun Spring 11 bags from Jil Sander.

The last bag is such a clever design. The clutch alone is worth it. Would love to see it in a different color combo though. Spotted it at Barneys while on a date with Mimi and Joelle. As I get older I'm beginning to gravitate more towards girlfriends. I spent a good 25 years of my life hanging with grimy boys and now in my 30s I'm appreciating little things like lunch/shopping dates. It's a nice break from my usual super speedy in-out purchasing experience, to be able to try things on together and pow wow with people whose taste you trust.

Is it just me or does the last bag look miu miu or prada ish.

I cannot do serious shopping with other people. 1/2 because I'm too selfish, the other 1/2 is because I need to be able to be in my own zone.

personally i love the last bag the most. it seems to be the most practical and best looking out of the bunch, and hello two bags in one! i agree though, i would love to see it in a different color combo. maybe blue and green or red and a light khaki.

That sounds really nice. I miss having real girlfriends.

I also agree on the last bag! Really clever. I like the first one too. Kinda look like candy. :p

love the last one, but i gotta say, as someone who loses things ALL THE TIME, just having that lil' clutch sitting there makes me hella nervous.

these are clever!
if I had the money though, atm I'd buy a Helmut Lang bag from the outnet, if I mean...

I agree with the person above who said the last one looks Prada? The Jil Sander "shoppers" are retailing for over $500 I hear. WTF, can I just say?!

I actually like the "plastic" bag. Quirky.
