It's Friday, I'm in love!

let me introduce you to my new baby:
I am so in love! 

A little story behind this beauty,

I went to DSW, fell in love with glitter booties.
Didn't buy said glitter booties, had to go back in a week to put them on my feet and in my closet.

Also saw this bag on my first visit and refused to hold it knowing that it was a little out of my price range {$149 brand- Crown Vintage} and I that I would end up fall in love. 

Couldn't stop thinking about it. 

I mean: leopard {check}, "oxblood" red {check}, pointed flaps on the sides {check}, "Celine"-ish handles {check}

It wasn't that I liked the bag, it was that the bag was everything I have been looking for. 

Went back to seal the deal, couldn't find said bag, cried a little inside and then there she was. 

perfection.

I had been looking for something similar for a while now,
Here is the other that I had been considering:
Target {$30}
After reading some reviews on the quality and not being able to find it in store {& not wanting to pay for shipping}, I was starting to give up on this one.

Others that have similar qualities I was looking for:
1. from Nordstrom- brand = halogen {$118- sold out now} / 2. from Piperlime- brand = Pour La Victoire {$475} / 3. from Open Sky- brand = R&J {$78} / 4. from The Outnet- brand = Alexander Wang {$390} / 5. from Saks Fifth Avenue- brand = 3.1 Phillip Lim {$950} / 6. Celine {around $2,000} / 7. from Last Call by Neiman Marcus- brand = R&J / 8. from DailyLook

1. Coach legacy ocelot print medium candace carryall {$338} 
2. Coach legacy colorblock leather candace medium carryall {$458}

Combining everything that I love about the bags above + the added quality that the Target version wasn't going to give me + the price not being completely unreasonable and pretty middle of the road. 

I justified bringing her home.
even the backside is cute =)
