Today’s Looking Back, Looking Forward reflects on an aspect of my seasonal purchase desires and decisions. I’ve noticed that at the start of every season, there’s always a handbag that I have to have.
Last fall, my must-have bag was the MICHAEL Michael Kors chain shoulder bag. I didn’t purchase it immediately because I couldn’t decide on a color. I later decided against the bag because I realized it was too small for my intended use.
I soon forgot about that bag I had to have. After that experience, I imposed a handbag moratorium to think more deeply about my handbag purchase desires and needs. The ban failed. You see, Nordstrom marked down the MICHAEL Michael Kors saddle bag two months into my moratorium and I was sure I wanted that one.

If you are here, I know you also think deeply about your purchases too. I find that I have to spend extra time thinking about my handbag purchases
because I’m usually willing to spend more on a bag than on clothing.
So, here comes spring, and hence the new bag arrivals in store. Here’s one bag I’ve visited at least
four five times in Macy’s stores—MICHAEL Michael Kors Margo shoulder bag.

It’s tangerine and has ostrich-embossed leather. The shoulder strap is a perfect length and doubles to make it shorter. It had my attention at first sight.
For now, I’m not making any decisions about this bag. If I’m still thinking about it in February, though, it might have to be mine.
