No…just…no. I refuse. I do not believe that a large company would have made this bag with the intention of marketing it to grown women or people that can afford a handbag that costs more than $100. It just…it makes no sense. It makes my face hurt. It makes my hair hurt. And it makes me wonder who, other than overindulged 12-year-olds, they thought they were going to sell the Juicy Couture Quilted Crossbody Bag to.
The shape isn’t great, but in the black version, it isn’t quite as magnificently terrible. The same with the ruffle – it’s still oddly Lolita-esque, but in a dark color, you don’t notice it as much. When the bag is baby pink, though, as you see it here…it charts areas of awfulness heretofore undiscovered by any bag we’ve previously covered. It looks like a bag made for toddlers playing house, but its price is in the 3 digits and it’s apparently meant to be carried unironically and by adults. For once, I’m actually hopeful that it’s only spoiled kids who are carrying this – they’re the only ones that ever should. Buy through Nordstrom for $128.
