I was considering this digital camera, and I was getting confused because of stuff like this:
Is the camera’s ability to fit into a small handbag really a…technical detail, to be at the TOP of a list that includes such things as static sensors and sonic speed? And why do they compare it to a fashion accessory? Are either of these details meant for men? What are they trying to tell me? Aw geez, is this a Young Female Celebrity camera, the kind I take out to snap cute pics of me and my friends drunk at clubs, thinking we’re SO CUTE and pretending to eat each other’s tiny expensive dogs like hors d’oeuvres?
Anyway. The camera description annoyed me, but the idea of a “small handbag” captured my imagination. This is MY purse:
And if the wallet doesn’t give you the scale, perhaps the doubled-rope handles will. This is a BIG PURSE.
I think the Santi clutch (photo from Amazon.com) captures the mood of my huge purse, but in a size just big enough for breath mints and a hankie. (Or a fashion-accessory-style digital camera.) I’d have to move the decimal place a notch to the left, but it sure is cute.
This La Regale clutch (photo from Amazon.com) gives me a funny mixed feeling, because on one hand I can picture someone else recoiling in horror—and yet I got a huge rush of love the minute I laid eyes on it. WANNNNNNNNNT. But again, a little problem with the decimal point.
I realize it’s a little abrupt to go from big fake jewels to smooth pearly pink, but I think there is an empty place in my life that would be filled by this Menbur evening bag (photo from Amazon.com). And it’s about half the price of the others.
Looking at this (photo from Amazon.com) and other bags by Mary Frances, I’d say the designer shares my love of Overdoing It a Bit.
