So...thanks to everyone who responded to my connundrum over needing a new purse. I have, in a dignified ceremony, retired the injured Betsey Johnson bag into the close and have made a new purchase!
After scouring eBay, Overstock.com, Macy's online, and a few other places...I found my new best friend in the most unlikely of places: CostCo!
I was stocking up on items and looking in the electronics section for a Wii (which I bought, as well!) and I ran across a display of Kenneth Cole Reaction hobo bags. Are you kidding me? My beloved Kenneth Cole at CostCo?
I snagged the bag. It's real. It's leather. It retails for $248. It's...only $68??? SCORE!
Of course, I bought it! Here's the closet pic I can find to what it looks like. I bought it in black:
What I love about it is it doesn't weigh a ton, my shoes will fit in it, but it's not too bulky and is quite classic in a style that won't go away. I feel so relieved...so liberated...ahhh.
What are you favorite discount stores? Any secret websites to share with fashion miracles that you've found? Come on...share with us!!
