I went to that 31 party yesterday. I liked several of their items… if only they had more adult, masculine fabrics, the Knight might have gotten a Large Utility Tote. The man packs for the beach in a laundry basket. Hem. However, black is not friendly in a house with two dogs with white hair, and those other fabrics are too… not masculine for him. (The black and white stripe had lime handles recently… THAT would have worked. Hrmph.)
Instead, I bought two different wristlet style wallets, hoping that one of them will work for me. The consultant is also an iPhone user, so she was able to assure me that both styles work with my phone. I also really liked the Retro Metro bag in Navy, but I don’t need another bag… unless I want something casual for summer? Wouldn’t it be cute monogrammed in a bright green or red?
Yes, you can find similar products at craft stores and big box stores, but I looked at a very similar to the mini organizer totes at a big box store last night, and it wasn’t as cute, couldn’t be personalized, and cost almost $2 more. Now, that doesn’t include the with shipping price from 31, but still…
I’ve come to the conclusion that I’m just not a crossbody girl. I’m not built for them, and they just don’t appeal to me. I like a true HAND bag, with straps that fit closely over my shoulder when I do need to toss a bag up there. Here’s hoping I can bond with one of the wristlets, allowing me to stick with my big bags when I’m not running errands!
How was your weekend?
