While in NYC, I went over to Spring Street (I used to work around there and it's a great shopping area, not that I shopped during lunch or when my boss was at the DC office, oh never ;).
This area is split into two shopping experiences. There first area has a few cobblestone streets with all of my dream stores...Chanel, Catherine Malandrino, Anna Sui, Louis Vuitton, Marc Jacobs, ahhh.
We have something in common,
that's my face after realizing I can't really afford my dream Chanel shopping spree.
No biggie. I snap myself back to reality and head to the shops on Broadway which are nice too and where I can shop without having to declare bankruptcy. I saw a Topshop store and I've heard so much about that store. I was looking for Marc B flap bag available at the UK Topshop that had a Chanel-esque look to it. It wasn't there, so I checked out the clothes. Wasn't that crazy about them! It was like a higher priced H & M. $70 for a denim vest! No dice!
*My husband was so cute, he kept calling the store "TopHat" by mistake.
I later picked up this satchel by Steve Madden. I just love Steve Madden satchels.The handles are always so comfortable and the bags themselves hold up really well. This one has a pebbled texture that I like. It looks similar to this Marc Jacobs...
Here's my bag. It's shown here in black, but the my brown version does look a lot like the Marc Jacobs. Especially with that little nameplate on the front.
