So do you think I like...

baskets or something?  I think this bag is just the cutest thing.  It's small, but I don't carry that much stuff around anyway.  It was an eBay find; the brand Roxy is embossed on the tab closure and handles.  Never heard of it - but if a bag catches my eye, I don't really care what the brand may be.  I've had this love affair with basket purses since I was a kid.  I had this Nantucket style purse that I carried for years - until I graduated to a wooden box purse that started out life a dull white.  I painted it lime green and added embroidered ribbon to it as trimming.  Very cute - I wish I still had the thing!

Innovative or tacky?

The Miche Bag with the quick change magnetic cover - is it cute or just a cheap fad of the moment?  I like the overall style of the bag - but the purse base is not leather - and none of the shells are either.  It's quite expensive for what you get - but still, I am drawn to the possibilities of covers for every holiday or season.  No, I'm not buying one, but I've been sorely tempted.  Then my tackiness meter kicks in and I am saved from myself once again.  What do you think of this bag?
