When I mentioned in this past post that I had just bought this gorgeous sequined duffle, I wasn't even sure (wait for it... ) if I even like the thing myself. I mean, I liked it, but I had gotten it in the mail a few weeks earlier and hadn't whipped it out yet and I was having doubts. But then you gals were so enthused about it, and it was contagious. So I packed up this beauty and brought it to Austin with me! And boy am I glad I did.
This bag made more friends than I did. I on the one hand am a complete wall-flower. My bag - not so much! Also, it's the perfect size and comfortable to carry. So those were major bonuses.
In completely other news... it was POURING rain (again) on this day, when we took these pictures even. Thank goodness for some randomly good light and a little Photoshop action. Woop!
So to sum up: we are thankful for sequined bags, my amazing readers that have a better eye than I do, good light on rainy days, Linda to take pictures of me on said days and Photoshop. And neon, let's not leave neon out.
I also need to thank Towne & Reese for outfitting me with some really fabulous jewelry pieces for the Texas Style Council. I'm seriously in love with their stuff - you should check them out.
