The other day one of my cute fashionable students walked into my class with a fabulous bag. I immediately went over to her desk to check it out and ask a bazillion questions about it. I loved its shape, size, color, and everything else about it! It was a beautiful creamy white leather bag with wrist handles and a canvas shoulder strap. I was pleasantly surprised when she said it was a Dooney and Bourke purse. I have never owned a Dooney and Bourke purse but always wanted one when I was a little girl.
In recent years I was never impressed with their line which seemed to be geared toward young middle school or high school girls. You remember their styles with the multi-colored hearts &/stars and monogrammed "DB" bags, don't you? Not really my thing.
Well the bag I like is a throw back to the bags I always wanted years ago. It's a simple classic leather bag with a little duck on the tag. The duck definitely reminds me of the D&B bags my Maw Maw used to carry when I was a kiddo.
I commented to my student that she looked like she belonged in The Hamptons! : )
Well, I tried unsuccessfully to get the perfect bag's image out of my head but it didn't work. I found it on their website but really didn't want to pay over $250 for it, especially since my student scored it for $100 cheaper!
So last night David and I decided to make a trip to the mall to scoop one up, but of course, they were sold out. Much to my dismay so was every Macy's in the St. Louis region. But, the sweet saleslady called around to other out-of-state Macy's and one in Kentucky had one left and it was mine! They let me have it for the sale price and they're shipping it to my home! I'm very excited for its arrival!!
