Toting Along

Mr. Old School and I went to the mall yesterday to return a dress that I bought. The dress didn't work out because it was too big. After returning the dress, we decided to go around window shopping. I was thisclose to buying stuff but I had to remind myself of my credit card bill. Plus, Mr. Old School was there to keep me in check.

I really wanted to get this canvas tote at Forever 21. It was a simple canvas tote with a printed bow design. I'm a reusable tote bag addict and I absolutely adore bows so resisting to buy the tote was VERY difficult. Besides, the voice of reason (a.k.a. Mr. Old School) kept on reminding me of the tons of bags I have at home that I have yet to use. So, bye-bye cute canvas bow tote!

Mr. Old School had to go his thing at the mall and I was left by my lonesome to continue window shopping. Being the J.Crew fan that I am, I had to drop by J.Crew. It's always lovely and inspiring going to their stores. I wanted to check out their other brogues but I was informed that they actually don't carry the brogues in the store. Ah! Too bad! It would have been awesome to try them out.

As I was about to leave, I caught a glimpse of this cute canvas tote bag with a sketch of a girl sitting on top of a pile of suitcases. The design is so cute, I knew I had to get it! It was a lot bigger and wider than the Forever 21 canvas bow tote too! I can definitely stash a lot of stuff in it! And what's that? No voice of reason to stop me! Muwahahaha!

This makes me want to go to the craft store and take a Sharpie to a bunch of blank tote bags... I have my Sunday project!

@Jenni: I totally agree with you! I was thinking of decorating my own plain tote bag with satin ribbons. Do let me know how your Sunday project turns out! :)
