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.

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.

Lately, I have been adoring all things Alexander Wang. You see, when Alexander Wang sent his Spring 2010 collection down the runway, I fell in love. The design aesthetic paired sportswear with preppy cool. And while the collection was far too tomboy for many, I found so many elements that I loved.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!”.

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.

I both tweeted and facebooked about being extremely let down by a new handbag purchase. And this is it.

The Alexander Wang Rocco in a style that I was obsessing over for its sporty chic vibe.
