ahem. readers, i think you all know that i love pink as much as…well, probably even a bit more than the next girl. and were this bag hot pink leather…well, it wouldn’t be my style, but i might at least understand it. but this bag, by pierre hardy, is neoprene. as in, the stuff they make wetsuits from. i know there’s a trend heading toward lightweight bags, as we all spent 2007 and 2008 causing all sorts of chiropractic dramas with our 40-lb marc jacobs bags. i can handle nylon or canvas, as long as it’s priced appropriately. and i might not even be averse if it were black neoprene, and executed more subtly. but i’m having a pretty serious aversion to the hot pink rendition.
oh yeah, and did i mention it’s $1,500??? seriously. for a bag made out of a wetsuit. honestly, tell me…are you actually buying $1,500 hot pink neoprene handbags during a recession?
sigh. please, in the name of fashion, take this opportunity to reject the fug by going out and treating yourself to a really lovely handbag on sale (also some lovely options here). you could do so much better.
