I guess yet another saying is true. We are creatures of habit. I had become very used to L.A.M.B. handbags. Anytime I heard of them or saw them, I basically knew what to expect. However, today, when I came across the L.A.M.B. Signature Top Zip Satchel I had to rub my eyes. I thought to myself, “wait, a second, this can’t be! The colors are too soft, the design, understated”! Now, as I looked a little more closely, I could see the signature pattern, but the colors, THE COLORS, where did they go? So, as I moved on from a bit of shock, I tried to figure out if I liked the change or not. The metallic-hued print around a structured satchel with black trim for a slight element of contrast do seem to work well together. My question though, is it too boring, too plain? (I never thought I would say that about a L.A.M.B. handbag.) Buy through Nordstom for $395.
