Everyone claims they are Irish on St. Patrick’s Day. The excuses for wanting to be Irish involving wanting to ask people to kiss you and being able to drink green alcoholic beverages, sing loudly, wear green, and mostly have a great time. Why would you not want to be Irish today? Fact is, Shannon and I are very Irish. I mean, seriously, with a name like Shannon and Meaghan you would think we still lived in Ireland. And for our being Irish, my closet is nearly empty when it comes to green clothing. And green bags, lacking as well. I guess I am not a fan of green on myself, though it seems to compliment my coloring and eyes just fine. That needs an update.
So for St. Patrick’s Day I wanted to find you all the greenest of green bags in a gorgeous design and beautiful skin. Of course Bottega Veneta has it and of course it is sold out and of course it costs $24,000. What I really wonder is how many people were sitting around this morning with $24,000 in their account waiting for this very bag to pop up on Net A Porter? At least one person was, and I would imagine they had more than one bag in stock. (more…)
