You guys, I have a confession to make, and it’s not a pretty one.
I don’t own a decent black bag.
Sure, I have one I carry every now and then that’s acceptable—and I do have a black clutch or two in my closet—but it’s nothing that I’m proud to throw over my shoulder and wear out the door.
Now, I’m properly ashamed of this, of course, but try as I might, I’ve been unable to find a solid black bag that has been a) in my price range, and b) attention-grabbing enough to consider purchasing. But alas! When I opened my trusty J.Crew Factory email this morning, this beauty was staring back at me:
It’s not outrageous, stunning or jaw-dropping by any means, but it’s just what I’m looking for: A basic black bag that I can throw all my (totally necessary) junk in before I trot off to work, the mall, dance class, etc. Plus—and this is a huge plus for me—it has gold accents, which means it would perfectly match my endless array of black, white and gold ensembles.
So what do you think: Should I go for it? It is on sale, you know…
