Looking Back, Looking Forward

Classic or tragic? It’s ironic that I only show keepsakes on Wednesday; yet, today’s post features an item I returned. This Arcadia domed satchel has a fantastic classic shape and a striking pearly cream color with contrasting red piping at its base. Though not a fan of blaring logos, the stamped insignia on the bag is subtle and artsy.
Why did I return it then? Well, the pearlized leather looked and felt more like plastic to me. After a rough cost-benefit analysis (made difficult by the ridiculously low clearance price and a desire for a bag in this color), my dislike of the bag’s leather prevailed.

    well, in a first look it seems not so bad.. but we’re just looking the picture, if you didn’t feel satisfied… well done.

    Yeah, the picture certainly does not capture the “plastic-likeness” of the bag. But, it was sitting right with me, so back it went 🙁

    I ALSO GOT THIS BAG AT MARSHALL's. I GOT THE ONE WITH THE SHINEY PATENT FINISH. IT IS A SHOWSTOPPER OF A BAG. THE FINISH IS SO DURABLE AND UNCOMPLAINING. MOST DAYS SOMEONE MAKES A FLATTERING REMARK ABOUT IT. IT HOLDS ALL OF MY HEAVY JUNK AND JUST LOOKS FAB. NOW I'M SURFING E-BAY FOR ONE IN BLACK. YOU SENT IT BACK. MORE FOR ME!!! THANKS.
    P.S. YOU ARE RIGHT THERE IS NOTHING LEATHERY ABOUT IT.
