Eating from the tree of knowledge

I keep turning over in my mind the period of time last night when I examined Tina Craig's Hermes and Chanel bags. A bit like test driving a Ferrari and then driving home in a Honda.

Oh, don't get me started. I made the mistake of letting an Hermès sales associate show me a Bolide bag a few weeks ago. $6K in the states right now, which I can't bring myself to spend on a bag (even if I saved up for it specifically), but it doesn't stop me from wanting one. Was having a discussion about Hermès bags last Sunday with a French cousin, and her husband's observation was, "Like cocaine in the 80's, it's God's way of telling you you have too much money." But dang, they're gorgeous, and I'm sure Tina's are TDF.

Pseu, maybe the Bree version of the Bolide? Not a cheap copy and it's in their classic line.

That Lindy is a 100% gorgeous bag and much more functional than a Birkin- though that is a theoretical discussion for me.
