Okay, so I tend to NOT be a trendsetter… Saturday, I stumbled across a bright red Big Budda Kim. I’d heard of Big Budda, but all I knew was that they did “vegan leather” bags. Since I didn’t know anything else about the company or their products, I left the bag, and began regretting that decision before I got home.
I’ve lusted after a red, patent leather satchel since I notice a Louis Vuitton bag on a plane over a year ago. I need a larger bag once in a while, but I am still quite happy with my green Tig for daily use, and I’m not about to spend a few mortgage payments on a handbag, even if my nephew’s great-granddaughter could inherit it one day.
Anyway, while I’m sitting here nursing my failed to buy it remorse, do you know Big Buddha? I’m enamoured with a few of their current styles/colors…
One of the reasons I love “vegan leather” or pleather or vinyl or PVC or… not real leather is because I love a big bag but my back can no longer suffer the vainglory heft of a leather tote.
It goes without saying that I like the idea of a bag that doesn’t need to be coddled. I pushed the Knight’s buttons yesterday when during the snowstorm, I tossed my precious green Tig bag onto the console in the chiefmobile, hitting the switch and turning on the siren in the grocery store parking lot. Hem. One might suggest that given our lifestyle, I shouldn’t carry a bag that can’t sit in the floorboard with salt, grease, mud, etc.
How was your weekend? Did anyone/thing push your buttons?
