Great Ganga Week — Take 2
And now for a lesson in patience.
It was back in late December/early January when I received the Nordstrom catalog beholding this B. Makowsky slouchy leather ball shopper aka "Antigua."
"It's a B. Mak! It's tie-dye!" I could barely contain myself.... until I saw the price — well over $200. I could contain myself.
I gazed at it online and after I spotted it in my local Dillard's, I'd visit occasionally and stop by the purse section for a loving caress. Still, I did nothing. We never even got to second base.
When the price dropped precipitously last month during Nordstrom's half-yearly sale for women and children AND — this is the biggie — I had a $20 coupon, then and only then did I pull the trigger.
She's a beaut. As all Makowsky bags are, it's sinfully soft. Squooshy, like a good bag should be, plus the top opens wide enough to see inside. This is actually from the B. Makowsky Lites collection, so no leopard-print lining. That's a good thing — much easier to see inside. The only thing I don't get is why you dub a purse "lite" and then attach this vanity metal tag that weighs a good 2 pounds. Whatev. It's a great summer bag.
