I’m speaking for all of us here at PurseBlog when I say that we are all thrilled that new Alexander Wang handbags are available. While new handbags seem to pop up all the time at some of our favorite retail stores, there are some days where I feel like I’ve already seen everything. I guess that’s what I get for basically scouring the internet for the best (and sometimes worst) handbags available.
Alexander Wang Handbags and Purses(Page 6)
Against perhaps my better judgment, I really like the Alexander Wang Jena Laser-Cut Leather Clutch. And I mean, I like, REALLY like it. The shape is a bit odd and I typically stay away from oddly shaped bags. Don’t ask me why, it’s just what I do. Yet, this clutch, this adorable, edgy and versatile clutch has captured my attention and I’ve not been able to get out of its hold since.
I know what you are all thinking: “Megs, you already bought this bag, didn’t like it, and returned it”. You will be right in thinking that. Call me crazy but this exact Alexander Wang Rocco Bag has been haunting me since the day I wanted it, the day I got it, and the day I returned it. It still is not the bag for me, but if you don’t mind the weight and the lack of shape of the bag, you may need to buy this Rocco before it sells out.
Is there a certain handbag that haunts you? The Alexander Wang Rocco has haunted me since I first laid eyes on it: leading me to buy it, only to end up being disappointed with it, returning it, and now feeling tormented like I could have liked it. You see, if you read my review of the bag I was entirely let down.
As I mentioned over on PurseBlog Savvy this morning also, I went to Kelly Cutrone’s book-signing in Atlanta (look for a post on that on Monday) and had a lot of fun scoping out what everyone was wearing. The girl carrying the Rebecca Minkoff Loveletters Leopard-Print Morning After Mini Bag was clearly the winner, at least for me – she did such a great job making a leopard print bag look like a wardrobe staple that I couldn’t help but mention it to you girls.
Everyone remembers my Alexander Wang Rocco love and letdown story. My returning this bag still haunts me a bit, as I rarely *rarely* return bags and this one held such a special place in my heart but fell short when it came to my expectations. Either way I will not ignore this bag or stop showing support for a design and idea that I love.
One of my favorite lines from one of my favorite movies, My Big Fat Greek Wedding, is when Toula’s father Guss recovers his mother who is constantly running away and says, “Hey everybody, look who’s back again!”. Clearly reading that line loses every bit of hilarious context in the movie, but it not only applies perfect to the movie but also to this bag.
We’re all told from a young age that we shouldn’t judge books by their covers, but how many of us manage to make a good-faith effort to follow that advice? I know that I’m guilty of it, even as a writer myself – we all like a pretty picture. The problem with pictures, however, is that they don’t give you the whole story.
The Alexander Wang Rocco in a style that I was obsessing over for its sporty chic vibe. This version of the Rocco had my heart. The wavy-stitched detailing added such a nice dimension to the luggage-colored leather, alongside the ridged silver tone studs at the bottom.
