Feature: J. Crew Leath Bags. So basically there's no excuse I can really make for why I've been on a semester long hiatus except for the fact that this was my first semester teachingin addition to taking course work in graduate school. Although I've been shopping a little here and there, I haven't really had the time or energy to pursue any hobbies other than sleep! However, lately, the fashion bug has bitten me again and I've been roaming conventional stores for unconventional and beautiful things. One of my new favorite haunting grounds is jcrew.com for basics and slightly more fancy and professional clothes for teaching. I've recently discovered their perfect handbag collection and just had to share! I literally want them all -- with their versatility, compartments, organization, leather, color, shape, basically everything; I'm always on the lookout for the perfect "carry all" bag in the city.
