Well, hello Upper East Siders, I spy a delectable leather accessory on the arm of Queen B. It seems that despite her romantic shortcomings, Blair Waldorf's fashion sense is as on point as ever. If you don't worship at the Gossip Girl altar like yours truly here then I may have already lost you, but it's in your best (stylistic) interest to read on.
Gossip Girl may be intended for teens, but it has the best fashion out there as far as I'm concerned. A few episodes ago, Blair Waldorf was spotted touring Yale with this fabulous Jardin Rose Framed Duffel in lipstick red, and I had the very weird urge to reach through my television, strangle her character, and steal her purse.
Seeing it in purple, I realize that it would have been completely justifiable homocide. The supple nappa is luxurious and the smooth grain of the leather suits the detailed feminine design perfectly. The gentle rouching on the frame top moves into more extravagent gathering on the body of the bag that not only creates volume, but also moves the eye to the center of the bag with its beautiful leather rosettes.
The generous 15" x 8" x 7.5" size might be a little too much for the dainty hand straps when full, but luckily there's a removable shoulder strap. The gold tone hardware provides a subtle, but rich contrast with the cool purple hue.
I really couldn't love this bag more. Unless, of course, I could afford it. But at $2,395 retail, this is one for the Blair Waldorf's of the world.
