"I generally avoid temptation, unless I can't resist it" - Mae West

I've never been much of a bag girl.  I own 2 proper bags, a couple of little fun (and cheap) ones and 3 clutch bags.  I find it extremely difficult to find a bag I love.  Think roomy, buttery soft leather, no external pockets or zips or dangling bits.  Yet a price that somebody who doesn't love bags is prepared to pay.  Impossible?

Last year I spent big on a J Dauphin bag and the zip broke after 3 days. Then I found something that ticked all the boxes, only to be running for the train a week later, getting the door closed on me with the bag outside and me inside (when the door closed shut the handle broke and all of my belongings were splattered on the platform at peak hour and the train had to make an emergency stop)... anyway.

So no bag, for ages.

I had steered clear of Scanlan & Theodore all year.  Huge weakness of mine since my early 20's and here I am wanting to kick some major goals in 2011 (like Paris).  Didn't mix well.  The only way was to staaaaay awaaaaay.  Except that one time... when I walked in and fell in love with one of their house label bags.  A bag that would have equaled about 6 months worth of my I'mOnATightBudgetPendingTripToParis play money.  No bag.

6 months later, I'm back from Paris, still without a bag and I get an SMS.  VIP sale starting TOMORROW.  I'm standing out the front waiting for the doors to open (I know, I know) and I spy THE BAG!  With a blue tag on it.  70% off?  You betcha.

We've been happy for a week now.  She's buttery soft, fits my whole life in it.  Has no unnecessary bits hanging on the outside.  It's true love.

    a designer to create your theme? Excellent work!

    Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is valuable and everything.
    But just imagine if you added some great photos or video
    clips to give your posts more, "pop"! Your content is excellent but with pics and videos,
    this website could definitely be one of the best in its field.
    Wonderful blog!

    I'm curious to find out what blog platform you have been using? I'm having some small security issues with my latest website and I'd like to find something more safeguarded. Do you have any solutions?

    Have you ever considered about adding a
    little bit more than just your articles? I mean,
    what you say is fundamental and everything. But imagine if
    you added some great visuals or videos to give
    your posts more, "pop"! Your content is excellent but with pics and
    videos, this site could certainly be one of the best in its niche.
    Amazing blog!

    Do you have a spam problem on this website; I also am a blogger, and I was wanting to
    know your situation; many of us have created some nice practices and we are
    looking to swap strategies with other folks, why not shoot me an email if interested.

    Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if
    you knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest
    twitter updates. I've been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this. Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.

    I am new to building sites and I was wanting to know if having your site
    title related to your content really that vital? I see your title,
    "Blogger: She Wore It Well " does appear to be spot on with what
    your blog is about but, I prefer to keep my title less content
    descriptive and based more around site branding. Would you think this is a good idea or bad
    idea? Any kind of assistance would be greatly appreciated.
