i am so ready for spring – i am pouncing on anything and everything with bright, bold color these days. this fabulous yellow bag by j.crew is a perfect example. the color is absolutely divine (and would be oh-so-cute with my new wallet…). i think citrus colors are really a great “new neutral” when the weather gets warm. they’re perfect with brown, black, blue, grey, white…really, just as flexible as most of your classic neutrals, but so much more fun. and i know we’re all supposed to be phasing out the massive, suitcase-sized bags…but i just couldn’t resist this one.
the down side: the oslo bag is $425, which is unusually high for a j.crew piece – particularly considering their tendency not to line their bags – a very annoying quality in a $400 handbag, if you ask me. but the good news is that i have some serious cash riding on this baby making it to the sale rack. cross your fingers!
