New on the Lemming List: Meli Melo Thela Bag

I blame Olivia Palermo.

It has been out for a while, so I'm a bit late to the party. I only discovered it while googling around for a new schlepping bag (I want one in tan this time).

I like how the handles go from front to back instead of the conventional left to right - it reminds me of the Hermes Lindy (which is only the element of dreams for now). I also like that you can tuck in the sides to make it more compact, and that the long strap can be fastened to the middle buckle when not in use is a pretty nifty, and well thought out, detail.

I would get it in a heartbeat if only it weren't so prohibitively priced - it retails for around five hundred pounds (ouch). I'm really trying to behave myself this year and curb my impulse spending, so I'm waiting it out for a couple more months to see if I really like it enough to splurge.
