The summer is half done and I realized I haven’t gotten anything special for myself yet. I’ve been wanting a new handbag. One that is exciting and colorful, yet elegant enough to carry around wherever I go. I shopped at many stores throughout New York – but I found the perfect bag online. The bag is called Bric’s Cervo. It’s a fashionable tote. It’s made of genuine leather with contrasting top-stitching. It comes in three colors, turquoise, natural and orange. (I chose the turquoise because it looks bright without being too loud.) It has a spacious interior with a zippered pocket. It’s perfect for what I need and best of all… it’s not expensive. I love it so much that I had Blu Whale put it up on their site for sale. You can see for yourself and decide whether or not you agree with me.
I saw this article in New York Magazine about finding luxury handbags and shoes at a discounted price, so I went walking to Manhattan’s East Village to a store called Eleven Consignment Boutique at 180 1st. Ave. They specialize in offering gently used luxury goods at discounted prices. Items such as a fashion trench coat from Burberry to discounted D&G jeans for men and women. I also found stuff from Rag & Bone and Jimmy Choo as well as Chanel handbags. The only thing is – you have to be open to finding something you want and decide if the price tag (although discounted) is right for you, and the fact that the item were gently pre-owned. I have to say, I spent a good hour just looking through all the items that they have. There were many things that I could have bought… and still tempted to buy. All in all, I thought it was a great experience to seeing what was available off the beaten path.
