The Schlepping Bag

Just exactly what possessed me to buy this bag I would never know; but I've been obsessing over it for days so what the heck.


Relax, it's just a canvas tote, albeit a wee bit overpriced. It reads "Jacobs by Marc Jacobs for Marc by Marc Jacobs in collaboration with Marc Jacobs for Marc by Marc Jacobs" and if that's not sarcasm I don't know what is.

I saw this in Shinjuku yesterday, but I was a bit hesitant to buy it, so I decided to think about it first but by the time I got home I was furiously looking for it online, but as I was about to order our internet connection went out. Which leads us to today, which is supposed to be my hibernation day, but with no internet it was just unthinkable to stay in the apartment. So I decided to go to Kawasaki, away from temptation.

I haven't been to Kawasaki in a while now, at least not for shopping (the last few times I visited it was only to eat at CPK). And I don't know why but for some reason I haven't really gone around Kawasaki Be, which is a department store full of nice expensive things situated just right across the train station turnstiles. So I decided to look around but I wasn't allowed to touch anything - because it's when you touch them that you fall in love (and spend money). And then, there it was - my bag staring at me in the face. And then the store speakers started blaring out Lady Gaga. End of story. What more is there to say?
