'Thou Art a Votary to Fond Desire'


...and boy did I desire this Marc by Marc Jacobs bag!  I saw it on a girl in the street one day in July while on my lunch hour and practically ran back to the office to peruse store websites for it.  Bloomingdales seemed to be my only hope but after calling EVERY Bloomies store in the nation, (yes, I'm nuts like that) found, to my chagrin, the bag  to be sold out.  I could not believe I missed out on so fabulous a bag!

Anyhoo, I turned to my next trusty source: eBay.  It took some time (especially since I wanted this cement color) but I finally found it, bid on it, and now it's mine!  It was fairly new and still has that wonderful new leather smell!  Oh genious bag!  It holds absolutely EVERYTHING!  And as a bonus, I snagged this ultra toasty Diesel sweater : )
