While I may not be a patient person, I am quite stubborn. Three years ago I decided that I wanted to buy a leather tote; it had to be a darker brown, made of a soft leather, and it had to have a top closure. The task sounded easy enough, since I was describing a classic-style purse that would never go out of style. Well, three years later I am still on the hunt. Perhaps I am too picky, but I have yet to find a bag that has caught my eye--or rather, I need to find a bag that isn't $3000 that will catch my eye! The elusive leather tote has found its home on my list of investmentpieces, and for now that is where it will stay.
