It’s kind of funny how much I talk about bags on this blog considering that I rarely buy them. (I guess when it comes to bags and shoes, we girls are always dreaming.) Recently in the blogosphere I have seen the gorgeous creations of DrikaB on Etsy and after drooling over her bags, I just couldn’t help myself any longer… I actually bought one!
I originally wanted this one:
But after hemming and hawing over if I really wanted it, it was already gone when I went to buy it last night :-( I also REALLY loved the larger weekender bag in the same pattern:
… but couldn’t justify the pricetag. HOWEVER, today I checked the shop again and found that DrikaB is having a sale! All weekender bags and pouches are 20% off plus free shipping today (May 28). That means the $99 weekender bag was reduced to $79 with free shipping — about as much as the basic tote would have cost with shipping!
I feel like this is a small victory and a nice treat for myself after finalizing a few Etsy sales of my own this month. I can’t wait to take this bag to Austin for the HOW Design Conference next month. I’ll be stylin’ on the plane, that’s fo’ sho’.
