Anyone a fan of Thoreau? I still remember my teacher my sophomore year in High School preaching how Walden was our guide to life and the line “Simplify, Simplify, Simplify” was the best quote to live by. I can’t forget that line and I always attempt to remember it from time to time in my life. For example, this Dolce & Gabbana bag manifests itself in simplicity. Ok, maybe that wasn’t exactly what my teacher meant by simplicity (since Thoreau did go to live in the woods), but this bag is simply beautiful! Isn’t that close enough? ;-). The Dolce & Gabbana Leather Shopper is made from divine ivory leather with golden hardware and stud accents. The only part of this shopper that calls a bit of attention is the logo plate on the front and hanging logo charms, but I find them to be quite beautifully subtle (and if the D&G charms aren’t subtle enough for my teacher and Thoreau, we could just chop them off). On the inside there is space for a cell-phone, PDA, and zip pockets (ok D&G you are killing me with the un-simple stuff!!) This bag measures 9 1/2″H x 13 1/2″W x 4 1/2″D. My point was far-fetched but you may have got my drift. Here comes the completely un-Walden like part of the story: buy this bag via Neiman Marcus for $1,175. Hey, I tried.
