close enough

OH, WHAT'S THIS?

WHAT WAS THIS THING FOR ANYWAYS?
EQUESTRIENNE BOOTS? MAGNUMS OF VEUV
E? PHONE BOOKS?

Just a perfect, enormous, oddly-shaped canvas & leather mega-tote that I thrifted at the Goodwill recently, ya know: CASUAL AWESOMENESS.

I am beyond psyched about this one.I think I'd like to get my initials foil-stamped on the little leather patch there, how's that for class-ay? Not classy enough? Hm. How bout this bit of trivia: I used this to lug home groceries today in my bike basket; on top of a ton of clothes I balanced a bottle of wine, an US WEEKLY, 4 yogurts and spelt bread. (SOUNDS LIKE A PARTY!)

I enjoy the fact that is bears more than a passing resemblance to this divine CĂ©line tote that I have pined for:


...but will never ever be mine, but who cares? The one I got is better; I mean it was 3 dollars.

God bless Oregonian second-hand treasures.

I would carry several bottles of diet coke in that thing. You should totally put a shoulder strap on it, ALONG WITH the initals
