More unrequited love

I usually am a firm believer that money can't buy love. But there are days, like today, when I seriously doubt that. I am in love with these two bags from Net-a-porter.com, and knowing I can never have them is causing me pain! I usually relish my independence and how I have become self-made. But today, I am extremely frivolous and in love, and I wish I was a trust fund baby.

What a beauty. This Fendi Spy bag in plum leather ($2250) is the most perfect specimen of a Fall bag. But I will never own it because even if I did have the money to buy a Spy bag, I'd buy a more sensible color like black.

If I was a rich girl, this would be my fall bag: Chloe's Cyndi tote in the perfect shade of gray leather ($2200). Last year I was able to snag my dream brown Paddington hobo at a Chloe sample sale. I wonder if the fashion gods will smile on me again this year? One can dream.

Ugh, Chloe sample sale? The perks of living in New York? I'm jealous.

Thanks Raych! The Chloe sample sale rocks! Last year there were Paddingtons for $450 and these Maggie bags for $150 to $250! Cray-zee. Can't wait for this year's sale!!! You must try NY for a year or so, just for the sales!
