Spring's Sweet Promise In The Air

Spring is decidedly in the air and I have high hopes that the weather will remain sunny and balmy...or at least not dip down too low again. It's just so liberating to feel a gentle breeze against bare skin after months of being sheathed in thick tights and heavier coats.

Normally I won't carry a purse too small for my camera, but I'm making an exception for this sparkly be-bowed number from Deux Lux (and carrying my camera tourist-style around my neck). I've been bought a couple of Deux Lux pieces in the past year that I've really enjoyed using; one lasted all through my abuse during my Europe trip last summer and is still going strong. Someone at Deux Lux noticed and asked me if I was interested in picking out a few pieces. Not one to look a gift horse too closely in the mouth, I accepted and am now the happy owner of several new purses. I'm a bag lady, so more than shoes or hats, I love acquiring new purses to tote my life around in.
I couldn't resist the sparkly bow on this piece and so far the quality seems really nice; it's soft to touch and there are no signs of fraying or the like. I personally would have preferred if the chain was detachable because it would look cute as a clutch as well and the chain is rather long; it would suit a petite frame better if the bag hit higher on the hip. Those sorts of details are more personal preferences than critiques. Overall, it's a sweet bag I intend to use on days when I'm not required to carry much with me.

  1. Purses... how they are a daily documentation of our everyday lives. The accumulation, the detritus that catches in the bottom, the items we deem as "essential", the receipts.... it's a tote-able repository of our daily comings, goings and interactions that just can't be evidenced in any other way.

    It's so fascinating.

    I agree, I normally want a big bag for a camera, but that little number is absolutely charming.

  15. Jealous! Here in Toronto it's still far too cold for bare legs. It's just about warm enough to be comfortable in tights now - an improvement! But it's never too cold for florals. =D

  16. awww bummer =( It's freezing cold and raining where I live. I loveee that trench. It's so perfect. And the bag is too pretty!! When it's finally warm enough to ditch the tights, i'm going to feel so weird and naked haha.
