lady bags

In the past few years, I can think of two clothing splurges which have made me really happy. The first was a light blue, denim, APC jacket. When I brought the jacket to the dressing room, I really didn't expect I'd be buying it. But when I tried the jacket on, it fit so perfectly. I could envision myself wearing it for the rest of my life. It's timeless, and reminds me (just a little bit) of the actress Beatrice Romand in the film Claire's Knee:

I can see her wearing it when she's older, too, in another film by Eric Rohmer, Autumn Tale:

In the past few months I'd been searching for the bag equivalent of that jacket: sturdy, goes with everything...something that I'll love forever.

These are the bags I really liked and considered. They're all beautiful - all winners!

(well, yes, it's a gorgeous, simple bag, but no - it's way too expensive.)
