arm candy

most mondays, my bold cup of philz coffee is enough to jolt me into super work mode. other days, the stiff beverage isn’t enough and i need a little more motivation to get me moving.
for these drowsy days, i shift my gaze to the festive inspiration board where my current fashion wish list lives. the newest beauties gracing this wall belong to the handbag society…and are far beyond my budget. but, if i work extra hard, i can get that extra bonus. and with that extra bonus….voilà! new arm candy.

here are a few of the it bags i keep daydreaming about. what’s on your wish list?

no.1 – missoni via colette

no.2 – vanessa bruno grommet tote via la garconne

 no.4 – mulberry alexa small via la garconne

  11. Great quote, only for me it would be “on my hand or wrist.” I like my “investment” pieces to be portable;)

    I really want to “invest” in a proper, real, honest to g*d statement piece handbag this year. I have my eye on an oversized Burberry bag right now. But I’m a Libra, I can’t ever make up my mind…sigh

  12. What a fabulous quote- definitely true for me 🙂 Love that Mulberry bag, though I’ve got my eye on the new Marc Jacob’s turnlock bag…I just gotta wait for a couple more paychecks!
