This lucky girl has a boyfriend who likes to shop almost as much as she does. To us, shopping is a game — we love the challenge of finding exactly what we want at the best possible price. When J offered to buy me a “just because” gift a few weeks ago, this bag came to mind, but it was already sold out in turquoise, and it was a little more than he wanted to spend. After a little internet searching, he managed to find one on eBay, brand new with the tag on it for nearly $35 less! Perfection.
As soon as he gave it to me, I said, “This bag makes me want to go to the farmers market.”
“You have fun with that,” he replied.
I guess you can’t have everything, but you can have fresh local strawberries and whipped cream for lunch with your best co-worker friend on a hot summer day. =)
P.S. Thanks again to Michelle for the photos (and the company). =)
P.P.S. If you were wondering, after trying on both pairs, I went with the Jacks (in gold instead of platinum).
