Dove Grey

Often times, the subway not only provides adequate transportation, but it also leaves me coveting someone else’s belongings.

This time, it was a handbag. This is interesting because, not only do I rarely pay attention to handbags, but I don’t really use one. I have a HOBO Int’l Rachel Wallet that Cleary gave me, and that’s pretty much it. I own three handbags – one from Mapel (seen here), my NOVICA satchel, and an old crappy one. I have a ton of clutches, but those aren’t really daily objects.

So after my eyes were locked on this bag, my logic flipped 180, and determined that not only did I love this bag, but…


It’s funny how the mind works sometimes, isn’t it?

So this bag on the arm of this girl – well, it wasn’t just grey – it was dove grey. If you’re unfamiliar, dove grey is the grey that is so light, and so delicate that it’s almost white. Side by side, dove grey and white are obviously different, but put two feet between them, and they look nearly identical. I adore it.

Her bag was so buttery and soft-looking… She kept books in it, her phone, her wallet, mp3 player, daytimer… It was big, but it wasn’t obnoxious big – just utilitarian big.

Also, eBags tells me that they’ve having a 20% off sale just for today, which is chance, as this draft has been sitting in my post editor for a week! But since this will likely post Monday (and today is Friday!), it may not be there any longer. So, in the style of consolation, here is a meager 10% off link: Save 10% Now at

    I bought a slightly darker gray handbag a month or so ago and ADORE it for its versatility. Let us know which one you buy, if any!

    I love that last one! But then, last time my grandma saw my purse she asked me where I got my luggage at. So that’s to be expected…
