This is the story of the perfect bag found on a scrappy budget.
The setting is Target, March 2016. A young fashionista looking for a bag for spring without high hopes. She wandered through all the racks, thinking she had seen everything. A second hopeless pass and her attention was piqued. Golden chain, golden clasp, and a stunning brown. Could this be it? Could this finally be the bag.
Small enough to be unobtrusive. Large enough to fit all the essentials.
Yes, yes. This was the bag.
But for real, guys. This is the best bag. It looks just enough like a Chloe bag that it has fueled the “Mama wants a designer bag” vibes while actively preventing a splurge we just cannot afford right now. I’m in bag love.
