I was absolutely thrilled when I first saw this little Handbag Raincoat at Shopbop. It’s such an obvious solution to the problem of shielding your nice handbag from the rain! Why didn’t anyone come up with this sooner??
Think of all the times you tried to stuff your handbag inside your jacket when it suddenly started to rain.
When my rose-colored Chanel bag was new (and I’m talking to you David Duff) I worried about the slightest drizzle and I wiped the bag immediately to make sure it was dry. Now that it’s beat-up from years of service, I don’t worry too much about rain.
But what if you have a suede bag, for fucksake! Your bag deserves a raincoat.
It even comes with its own cute little pouch.
So imagine how disappointed I was when I went back to consider buying one, only to see this review:
A piece of junk that is nothing but an inconvenience?!
Ugh, you’d have to be pretty stupid to buy one now. Unless the reviewer, “ashsmith,” is just some crazy troll determined to dash my hopes and dreams.
Meanwhile, I’ve been wasting hours looking at expensive designer bags, conflicted about the whole handbag thing, knowing as I do that the nicest handbag won’t help anything. But still.
Does anyone out there still give a shit about handbags? I’d like to hear your thoughts. (But not yours, David Duff.)
