One of my 2011 epiphany’s was “I hate pleather” Truly, pleather is kind of like a mystery meat. It’s sort of like eating Spam or Vienna Sausages when you could have skirt steak. The memories, the calories, the awful taste & wondering when will this mystery meat ever leave my system — perhaps 2022? iick. Well pleather is like that, totally unpredictable and something that I’ve become very averse to.
Well, my budget is not Chanel nor Dior — not any purse over $600. However, I still think you can get great value, luxury and style w/o spending next month’s NYC rent on one single purse. So here are my picks that I’ve lusted over and some even splurged on. I’ve narrowed my lust down to 2 brands Marc by Marc Jacobs and Rebecca Minkoff. These are all available at either Saks or Nieman.
