The devil may wear Prada, but it was this Marc Jacobs bag from the film that stopped me in my tracks...or would have, had I not already been stopped and seated in the theater. Fortunately I was able to find one with the help of a lovely SA in California!

Cleaning out my closet!

The unthinkable has happened. I have gone on a purse purging spree! My once voluminous bag collection is now dwindling, and the ladies at FedEx are starting to recognize me on sight! Today I shipped of my chocolate Hogan Shopper in trade for a Balenciaga Purse in caramel, which more likely than not will go up on the chopping block upon arrival. I am even thinking of cancelling my pre-order for the Balenciaga City in blue India...and I am #1 on the pre-order list! Still hanging in there are the 2004 Balenciaga pewter First, the Chloe Edith in whiskey, the (new) Marc Jacobs multipocket in denim (leather), and the Hogan H-flap Scout in mahogany. I am on the fence about the lemon Scout...the bag I hunted across two continents and swore I would never part with. I also have some Coach bags still in the closet, and a Tods Micky that could do with a new home, but the big designer bags seem to be taking one for the team, as it were. On the horizon...the quest for Birkin. But first, the quest for another job continues!

THIS is the hat that I absolutely must have for fall/winter. If anyone knows who makes it or what it is called, please let me know. It was in the Bergdorf Goodman pre-fall magazine, but they have not been able to track it down.
