A lot of you responded with your own tales of woe when Megs wrote about getting caught in the rain with her pale pink Givenchy Antigona, so I suppose it shouldn’t surprise anyone that The Handbag Raincoat exist and is available to purchase at Shopbop in three sizes.
I talked to you all about purchasing my next bag, a Fendi bag, last week. I’m still going back and forth trying to figure out exactly which bag I want and I’m thinking about it so much I’m starting to think maybe I don’t even want a Fendi bag.
When the Céline Luggage Tote hit the scene, it quickly reached It Bag status. The bag became highly coveted and highly carried. To this day, people still respond with enthusiasm when we share Céline bags on our Instagram account. I personally went on a major spree, snatching up three Luggage Totes in the span of a year.
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.

Over the weekend, there was quite the rainstorm as I headed out for a pedicure.
