Megs stumbled upon this pretty hoboesque bag yesterday. Keep in mind that was while I was kept at INS Level 2 (some immigrations agent thought I may have been an illegal worker in the US or something like that, almost causing us to miss our connection flight) and being interrogated about my trip. Fortunately, they didn’t drag my arse to Level 3, where an oversized Helga with latex gloves and lots of lube would have awaited me for a full-body cavity search, hoping to find some oh-so-secret information about f*ck-do-I-know-what. Oh splendid. I guess the INS does not like tourists travelling into their country too frequently, I really don’t know. Fortunately, they didn’t send me back, ‘cuz that would have sucked pretty big testicles. Aside from high stress levels and Megs’ uncertainty over what would happen to her boy, the delay had one good though. The lady had plenty of time to browse good ol’ American mags and catch up on the latest fashion jazz.
Perlina is a company that has yet to be mentioned ’round here, but considering their simplistic designs (that still manage to impress) their application range is very wide. Take for example the Rumor Two Pocket Slouch – looks like a winner to me. The leather gussets (the patches around the corners) and the two front pockets add flair, still not making it too busy looking. You have a choice of five shades, including the very popular pewter. Hence, mix-matching it with your wardrobe should not be much of a task. The bag also comes relatively cheap, $286 to be precise. You can grab them off Perlina’s online store or several brick & mortar retailers around the US.
