Got Cha!

True story.  I’ve been quietly eyeing the Proenza Schouler PS11 for about two years but never pulled the trigger.   My faves in it were the black and the toffee brown in size medium.  I’ve shot street style now for years (time flies!) and notice trends but even when the PS11 had shifted from being a popular bag, it turned my head years later if I saw someone wearing it.

Six weeks ago-ish I walk into INA consignment (read about INA in my older post) and I see the above sitting on their bag shelf!   In that same toffee brown!!  You can imagine what my face looked like.  Insert ‘The Scream’ emoji.

Side note: I had an image of this same colour PS11 saved to my desktop which I’d periodically double click and stare at.  Sad.

After ten minutes of frantically texting mod pics to friends with the rhetorical: “what do you think should I?”  I walked out with it.

Of course it’s already been on Instagram

Question: Is there a bag on your radar that you’re quietly contemplating?

    Yes! This exact bag! PS11 in the mini and in that tan or in a navy color. I’ve been keeping an eye out on fashionphile. There was a tangerine version they were selling that went down to like $450 and I was so upset I didn’t snatch it up.

    Ok so I know this is a really, really old bag but, I am looking for the Fendi Spy Bag!! I have 2 but, there were so many colors and variations of this bag! I want to plain one! I check ebay weekly to see if some has it for auction but, no luck yet. Also looking for the Chanel Caviar (Jumbo) bag. If anyone comes across one at a great price, please let me know.

    I’m so wanting the Issey Miyake Bao Bao in orange… Can only seem to find it in red!! I saw a girl wearing the orange one with a blunt bleach bob, blue dress and orange lipstick – major girl crushing and ever since then I’ve been coveting the bag!
