new love: tano handbags!


you will love these bags. they are awesome to touch, they're made of leather, the colors are deep and saturated, they're urban and sleek and so so chic.

they also don't have that awful tacky, oversized, obnoxious hardware look so many bags have now. (really, handbag makers? you really need to put buckles the size of fenders on women's bags?)

i stimulated myself as soon as i received my stimulation from our government. this is my new italy bag (in fudgesicle.) and this is the bag i really really want. maybe i'll save it for my birthday.

sigh. aren't they lovely? I got my Tano bag at RR1 Chicago (Chicago/Ashland); you can go there or to these locations in Illinois.

shoes and bags, shoes and bags. there really isn't anything that comes close.

I'm partial to the 1154 Lill Studio bags. All cloth, and you get to pick out the fabrics yourself from a selection that must number in the hundreds. I get so many compliments on my Lill bags, and NOBODY ELSE has one just like mine.

I think I could handle Shanghai. Are there any black people in Shanghai?

Hmm. This is nice, but the others are a little too shiny/buckley/thick strappy for me.

I saw a lovely bag the other day but the zipper on it was sticky and cheap. SO disappointing. I remain in search.

that one is nice. i like my bags to look a little domme so the straps work out nice.

(what i can't express in my own life, i will express through accessories.)

Lot of buckles, I would fidget...
