The perfect bag...
sack feet

for a friend.

We caught up for coffee last week & spent a lazy hour discussing The Sartorialist & the merits of the perfect handbag.

For me..
worn across the body, single strap, slouchy, soft

For her...
sacky, bright, wide straps, big enough to fit lunch, gusseted

sack stuff

It was her birthday yesterday so I made "the perfect bag" for her.

It's fully lined & made from thrifted everything.

As I finished it all I could think of was the iconic Country Road bag. This baby is "vintage" circa 1989. My sack bag has a similar capacity but with perhaps a nicer shape...
