Much as I’m trying to curb my handbag insanity–my bag tree has run out of spokes–sometimes even the best of attentions are stopped dead in their tracks.



I refer you to the Junior Drake sale at Rue La La, and the Athena black leather hobo which will not get out of my head.

It retails for $358, and is right now selling for $129–more than enough to be excited about, but it also has the fringe tassels and silver hardware I crave.

These are both part of the edgy rocker look that is taking over the runways this fall – not to mention, has a very western-chic feel as well!

The leather is buttery soft, too – so while you may feel like you are living dangerously, you are actually lapping up the luxury – which is my absolute positive favorite thing to do.
