I’ve been thinking about handbag life cycles lately, and it occurred to me that most of you likely do not have the space constraints that those of us who live in New York City have. Even in a particularly spacious apartment, storage is at a premium, and that means I can’t keep all the things I might have kept if I still lived in Georgia and had a walk-in closet.
Friday was the first day of spring, and even though it snowed all day in New York City, we pressed on through the weekend anyway, mostly because we didn’t have a choice. That’s all over now, though, and we are determined to start the first full week of the new season on a nice note: with over two dozen bags that positively scream “SPRING!!”
