In the Bag!

Once again St. Germain has surprised me! The land of status handbags (think: well over 1,000 euros for a purse chez Rykiel, Armani or Ralph) is also the place to score a deal on an under-100 euro find…if you know where to look. I found this well-made pebbled leather handbag, which is large enough to hold a laptop computer and much more, for a mere 70 euros. The top closes two ways; with a semi-hidden zipper for using the short, structured handles; and another way which hides those short straps completely and allows you to clip on an adjustable stap. The bags had sturdy (if shiny) gold metal hardware, including 5 “feet” on the bottom. At Blue Lemon, 65 rue Saint-Andre des Arts, these bags come in some 10 or more colors.

    You’ ve proved once again that one should never jump to conclusions when talking about different quarters. There will always be more than one thing that defies the stereotype!
