Do you put your bags on the ground?

I’m always ready for a lively debate when it comes to this topic, and it’s something anyone who carries an expensive bag is faced with daily. When you’re out and about – grabbing lunch, sitting on a park bench or at the movies, for example – do you put your handbag on the ground?

When Megs and I sat down a couple of weeks ago to discuss what we’d be covering for the end of the year, we knew we wanted to do a post about the most important bags of 2013. (And we did do that!

For some reason, people really like Pinterest. I’m not really sure why that is (that’s right, there’s a non-believer in your midst!), but I have friends who could wile away entire Sunday afternoons pinning decor ideas, recipes and, perhaps most importantly, crafts.

We’re in the last phase of the biggest shopping weekend (long weekend? week?) of the year, and despite the fact that designer sales have traditionally taken place in December, the past few years have seen the sale season creep forward to coincide with the Black Friday/Cyber Monday shopping orgy in which the rest of the consumer market partakes.
