You know the old saying, “you always want what you can’t have”? Well, I find that saying stuck in my head this morning. As much as I love writing about handbags I continuously lust over, sometimes I wish I had endless funds and could snatch up everything my eyes fall in love with. Then, there are times when I come across a bag that is sold out. I don’t know why, but I tend to find myself wanting a sold out bag more than I might if it wasn’t sold out. Anyone else?
The Jil Sander Fringe Satin Clutch is a perfect example of this. At first glance I almost skipped right over it. But then, the big bold red “SOLD OUT” font caught my attention. It’s sold out? Why?! What if I want one?! The black satin clutch with looped fringe detailing and magnetic snap closings would go so well with so many outfits. The chic, understated elegance with a hint of movement would be great for a night out on the town. But, wait, do I really like it or is it a case of wanting what I can’t have? What do you think? Net-a-Porter for $1180.
