Hayden-Harnett Spring Bags
The Hayden-Harnett Spring Collection is here. The Alfie Bird bag jumped out at me right away. I like that it is SO different from all the other bags out there, and that goes for shape and fabric. The linen looks especially nice up against the brown or white leather. And I notice there is a nice long zipper pull on the outside of the bag. That kind of attention to details makes me never want to buy a mass produced bag Target bag from China ever again.
The Alfie Bird bag probably would not be the most practical of bags to use for everyday, but it would be perfect for running errands or going out for the evening. Basically anytime where you need a small attention getting bag, but still need to fit your wallet, camera, phone and five different kinds of lip balm (maybe that last part is just me).
But when it comes to the whole HH collection myheart belongs to Ibiza Convertible Flight Tote in olive nylon which I have been stalking online for several months now. It is basically two bags in one so I could use it as an everyday commuting bag or as a carry on when I travel. Pockets everywhere including a padded laptop pocket, two staps so I can wear it different ways, and made out of heavy duty nylon that can stand up to being banged around every day on on the subway.
A possible 30th birthday present to myself? I'm thinking about it.
