Thistle's bag post this morning raised a question for me.
In this miserable winter (there's a blizzard out my window...AGAIN...as I write...) I have hardly worn my wool coats at all. The last time I got to wear my red wool coat was December. It's been my grey puffer coat Every. Single. Day. Along with some grey Kamik snow boots.
I'd hoped to purchase a new bag this fall, and I did get one -- a light taupe Tiganello shopper. It's okay. I don't hate it. But it hardly sets my world on fire with its beauty. It was available, practical, a good neutral for me and the right size in a good price. So I snapped it up, hoping I'd find something more inspiring later on.
That hasn't happened. Meanwhile, the light taupe looks sort of awful with my puffer coat (which is blue-grey) and isn't all the easy to carry with the coat, either.
But when I stop to think about it, I don't even know what kind of bag DOES look good with a puffer coat. Do you? What do you think works with what is basically a big knee-length parka?
