I attempted to write this post in the morning during my spare period, but I was yelled at by a testosterone-charged female teacher for not doing curriculum work and I grudgingly succumbed to her bogus authority. So anyways, let's start again.
In reference to the post below: Curse you, Ebay! I ended up losing the auction, of course - and was so sad that I considered bidding on a fake Stam bag but decided against it. A few months ago it was my goal to own a quilted bag and a croc bag, and I finally own both but am very disappointed with the actual results. My quilted purse is black velvet, but the chain strap links don't fit together perfectly anymore. The vintage croc purse is a deep blue colour. I wish it were black and it looks like a garbage bag if you think about it too hard. With University lurking in my future, I realized that I should save my money and just be happy with the bags I've already acquired, despite their flaws. But if I'm still in desperate need of a perfect quilted or croc purse, I might find one when I'm in Toronto on November 22nd. If you see a girl in a gold coat with ratty brown hair running around Queen St. that day, just say hi!
