Luella Ostrich BagIf you had $5,000 laying around, what would you do with it? Would you travel half way around the world, stay in a beautiful resort, pay off your bills, renovate part of your house, or would you spend it on one single handbag? Just one little handbag. So the assumption I have come to today is that women who can afford $5,000 all the time are loaded. Women who chose to spend $5,000 on a handbag that they may not really be able to afford, are purse lovers who put their love of the shoulder fashion before their smarts. I bow down to you women!

For some reason high end handbag designer, the flight of the ostrich has taken off. Actually, I believe ostriches do not fly. But they sure are appealing for the fashion industry to use when designing high end handbags and purses. All of my purse lovers know the brand Luella very well by now. Let’s mix together the name Luella with the supple and extravagant ostrich skin, the trend of studs and grommets, and the divine hue of purple, into a sexy hobo shape. The Luella Diana Ostrich Hobo flaunts itself with quite a bold statement. The hobo is made of supple purple ostrich which is accented with golden hardware and studs. The adjustable shoulder strap is an attention grabber with buckles and allover grommets. The hobo is an open top with stud trim and fringed tassels and grommet trim on side flap pockets with padlock accents. If you look at the size (7 3/4″H x 12 1/2″W x 7″D) and the price, you may realize you are paying quite a bit per inch. The bag is ready for you via Nieman Marcus for $4,995.

    Hi all! I’m a purse-a-holic but am not nearly as hip as you all seem. I’m probably a few years behind in my purse taste but I love reading all your comments. You have gotten me in the mood for a Paddington!

    This is a pretty hot-looking bag that one could wear to a concert. (ipad)
