but, as is normally the case for my lackluster motivation, i never followed through with more examples of desirable weekender travel bags, nor did i have the disposable cashflow to make the safari bag appear. while i’m still wondering if said cashflow will ever stop alluding me (sneaky, sneaky $), at least i can share my latest favorites with you good folks, and together we can want, want, want to our heart’s content and bask in the beauty of glorious design from punk to chic to classic. mind you, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with the bag i have now, but i’ve had it forever (thanks, grandma!) and a girl can dream.
some are priced within our “normal people” reach and some are so LOLable, i’m almost 184% positive they will never appear in my (or your) “to buy” list. (like that slick, buttery, mulberry beauty, for example.) oh, and i’ll have you know, if it weren’t for the hope that i could one day find these beauties for much less on ebay, that positive percentage would be much higher.
[btw: did you hear about this? mulberry is teaming up with apple to create stylish laptop bags. wonder how much those suckers will set us back. hey, apple — you’re a cali-based company, why you gotta run all the way across the pond for this? i bet there are many, many local designers who would’ve loved to do this, like maybe the cool-ass groovetastic folks at free city super shop.]
