Hi, first off……I am back! So well rested (and very well fed) and have lots to tell you. Back to business and ironing out all kinds of kinks while trying to get used to a new blog format. WordPress, while a great platform with its limitless possibilities is indeed a lot to learn. I (just giving you a heads up) may be switching back to blogger. Probably a first, I know. Call me a wimp or chicken but timing is everything and I simply do not have the time it takes to really learn it right now whereas with Blogger I am just so comfortable with it, its like going “home”. Not to say I will not make the switch permanently one day, which I probably will but don’t think the time is right now. So…..don’t be surprised if you see me back at blogger and it might even? mean my blog looking ugly for a day or two while? in transition (but rest assured I am on it like syrup on a pancake and soon enough things WILL look fabulous)!!!! All that said, I am going to see how today goes in trying to iron out some kinks and will make my decisions later today, to be continued….. This post I had prepared last month but it sat in my draft box so figured it was a good day as any? to post it………. Hi there, missed doing my “Which would you choose”…..Dec. and Christmas is staring to feel like a distant memory. Oh wait, my Christmas wreath is still up…not that distant:) Every season I “invest” in one or two really good handbags. I have bags that I have owned for over 12 and 14 years that I still, love and enjoy and use all the time. To me handbags, like good coats, are great investments, at least the more classic ones are. I favor totes and top handles for everyday bags. I may or may not be in the market for one soon and I got busy looking and really admired a number of new beauties, so wondering if the handbag fairy stopped in to hand deliver a bag of your choice..which one would you choose? I look forward to hearing all about it……. CHOICE 1 Alexander McQueen CHOICE 2 CHOICE 3 CHOICE 4 CHOICE 5 Gucci CHOICE 6 Nina Ricci CHOICE 7 Miu Miu CHOICE 8 CHOICE 9 Maylet CHOICE 10 CHOICE 11 Bottega Venetta CHOICE 12 Reed Krakoff CHOICE 13 Fendi CHOICE 14 CHOICE 15 CHOICE 16 So many to love….I would love one of each! Be sure to use the convenient poll to vote but feel free to leave a comment, you know I love to hear from you! You can vote for TWO favorites. When spending a lot on a bag it is almost always a neutral so I know I get a lot of mileage out of it…how about you? Mind you these are more in keeping with later winter/early spring colors. Come spring I will definitely do one featuring beautiful springy colors! Hope you have a fabulous weekend, mine is going to be busy catching up on so much and squeezing in dinner tonight with good friends. No snow is always a good thing over here though I am hearing rumblings of more on Wed….enough is enough! A reminder- Tomorrow is the last day to enter my amazing Polyvore contest “Hanging in the Hamptons beach house” where TWO lucky winners are going to each win a $500 gift certificate to Safavieh Home. Don’t miss out! Click here for all details! Until next time……. Which handbag is your absolute fave?
