Sometimes you just wake up, and you know its going to be a good day. The sun is shining bright, you have air in your lungs, delicious coffee in your thermos, and a beautiful bag on your arm that will elicit a symphony of oohs, ahhs, and at least a dozen heartfelt compliments before lunch.
Unfortunately, this scenario isn't how I spent my early AM hours, but it is what I dreamed about last night... a welcome departure from zombies eating my waffles, cutting off all of my hair and then kidnapping my dog. I digress.
I have just found my new must-have "it" bag of the summer. A handbag that personifies everything chic, stylish and on trend this season. A bag that I will save and scrub floors for, a bag that I will fondly call "Viv", a bag that I will refuse to put down on any women's restroom floor when faced with an absence of door hooks and/or counter space. It is the Vivian Chevron Stripe Dome Satchel by Brahmin.
If you haven't heard of Brahmin Handbags you either 1. must not live in Boston, or 2. must not love polished, refined, beautiful bags that redefine timeless style. Borrowing their name from a term used in Boston circa the 1800's, a brahmin is, in laymen's terms, a cultured person from an established upper-class family. A Brahmin bag is, in laymen's terms, a hot, luxurious bag that will make other women jealous.
How adorable are these mid-size structured satchels? Posh yet youthful, classy yet sassy thanks to the hot punch of neon pink and citron chevron stripes. Right now, chevron is like the Zooey Deschanel of prints, widely popular with even the biggest haters struggling to admit that it makes them feel happy and warm inside.
If my beloved dome satchel shape isn't your cup of Boston tea, go forth and explore the entire Chevron Stripe Collection, featuring roomy totes, ladylike laptop cases, pouches, wallets and swank tablet clutches that make me want to upgrade to an iPad 3...
One zombieless dream at a time, Sammy.
