By popular demand and several requests, I’m going to try to revive the outfit of the day feature…although, in all honesty, it may end up being more like “outfit of every couple of days”, or “outfit of the week,” but I’ll give it my best shot!
What I’m wearing:
Repetto ballet flats
Tory Burch Cardigan
Hayden-Harnett for Target handbag
For those of you who have been paying attention, yes, this is the smallest handbag you have ever seen on me – it’s a good 4-5 times smaller than my “normal” handbags. And to be honest, it doesn’t fit everything I usually carry with me, but it does fit the necessities (even the bags that go inside my bag are huge LOL – what can I say??) like my wallet and a pared down makeup pouch, my phone, and iPod.
Normally, I’m not a very big fan of the Target handbag collaborations – mostly, they just look like knock-offs of the designer’s regular collection, and the PVC is usually, just ewwww. The Hayden-Harnett for Target collection is definitely inspired by the designers’ regular collection, but also very different. And the PVC on most of this collection is tolerable, and much more leather-like than previous collections. (I especially hate it when they try to make it look like patent leather, it just looks so much cheaper…Anya Hindmarch?? Botkier?? I’m talking to you!)
Anyway, I was really drawn to this bag, although I would have purchased this one if it was available in stores (I may still decide to order it). I think it will come in handy for quick trips, or when I need a smaller bag. It’s very light, and easy to carry on my shoulder, but I also really like carrying it as a clutch.
