I am still fighting on heroically in my quest to find an awesome yet appropriately inexpensive mini crossbody bag, and for some reason, I just can’t pull the trigger on any of the ones that I find that I really like. I’ve gotten to be something of a miser with my money lately, for no immediately obvious reason, and I’m having a difficult time swiping my debit card for anything. For something a bit spendy? Forget it?
I will admit, however that the L.A.M.B. Acid Houndstooth Darlington Crossbody gave me pause for more than a moment. What I haven’t yet decided is whether or not I’m a little embarrassed about that.
I like the graphic, modern interpretation of houndstooth, but I think that perhaps the pattern has been redone in a similar way by one too many companies wishing to hawk their wares at Hot Topic. It appeals to the 15-year-old emokid wearing too much eyeliner inside of me, and that’s probably not a part of me that I should allow to affect my personal style in any real (or expensive) way.
But then again…it’s not all that expensive…Buy through ShopBop for $175.
