Ok, so it’s rare that I write love letters to accessories, but there’s a first time for everything:
Dear DKNY Python Printed Leather Large Zip Tote,
You had me from the moment I saw a photo of you on Purse Blog. You know the one: where DKNY’s Aliza Licht spoke of all the things in her stylishly-appointed bag? Well, you were the bag in question, and you looked at me, ever-so-coyly from that Donna Karan director’s chair in Aliza’s office.
I wasn’t looking to get involved (I was actually there to read more about Aliza’s love of all things NARS, which is a shared obsession of mine,) but once I saw you all bets were off. I felt my breath catch in my throat. Your studs shimmered at me, the python-printed leather looked so supple and rocker chic. I’d like to think we both felt something special.
I’m just a woman, standing here, in love with you, the Tote of All My Fall Wardrobe Possibilities. You’re everything I want in a day-to-night tote with attitude. Let me take you away from all this. You, me and a whole fall filled with insanely-busy days where I have to look like I have it together from daylight through dusk and beyond. What do you say?
A Woman In Love
