A Beautiful Illustrated Tote From Anthropologie and My Answer to too Much Black





B eing a consummate New Yorker I wear a lot of black. Black clothes, black shoes, black coats, black accessories, but when summer roles around the last thing I feel like doing is carrying around a heavy black bag.  A few weeks ago I spoke about this blush suede bag I picked up at Zara, well here is a beauty that I picked up at Anthropologie last month and you will not believe how much I paid for this stunner. This bag is from the Miss Albright Specialty line of accessories that is sold exclusively at Anthropologie. It features the whimsical illustrations of artist Starla Halfmann and is quite the head turner don’t you think? It is a combination  of canvas and suede and I just love the fashion forward colors and hand painted aesthetic. This bag was recently sold on Ebay for $187.00.  How much did I pay for it? Hold on to your hats ladies—but it was on sale at Anthropologie for $39.99 with 20% off the sale price, so I ended up paying $32.00 for this gorgeous and unique tote. Another score for this here bargainista!  And what about you? Have you picked up any unbelievable deals lately?
