Woulda, Coulda, Didn't

Three stores I need to stay out of - Saks, Williams Sonoma and Restoration Hardware.  I mulled over this white Alexander McQueen bag recently.  Woulda, cause I really loved it.

Coulda, as this black one would have been more practical.  

Would never, but this little McQueen lizard number was cute, though it wouldn't have been with the dirt from my garden showing under my fingernails.  My chickens would have loved pecking the bling.  I do wonder though, if I purchased this and put it away unused for about ten years, if it would be worth much more.

At the end of the day, I didn't go home with one of these, but settled for a Tory Burch bag and a pair of Tom Ford sunglasses.  I'm not going back to Saks for a great long while.


  1. Oh ... very cool. LOVE the orange but the studs are fabulous too. The white, I think. I mean, if you are going to go fabulously impractical ... that would be it. I guess, the black would go with anything. :)

  2. Wonderful shopping trip!!.Love the handbag.
