Messenger Bags - Binge vs Deal

Messenger Bags - Binge vs Deal

1 415 AUD - stellamccartney.com

With a Stella McCartney bag (around $1500), I can prance around saying "I've got a Stella McCartney bag!". The novelty may wear off after about 20 minutes. Then I could buy a big bag of rice and eat that for the rest of the year.

Alternatively, I could pick up this lovely Tom Ford bag ($130), and nobody would know the difference unless they followed me around with their heads tilted at a strange angle.

I recently bought a new messenger bag and paraded it around, revelling in its multi-pocketed glory. The only thing I failed to consider was the strange metal hook at the front, generally used to secure the bag but who has the time to do it up when you're going to open it again?

So I'm happily strolling into the crowded whole foods shop when I feel a tug around my shoulder. I keep walking but the tug gets stronger. I try to walk further but I find I am walking on the spot and not getting anywhere. It is only then I realise that someone has grabbed my bag and is trying to yank me out of the store. I plan my attack. I hone my ninja moves. I wait for the right moment before turning around...

To find that the large metal hook had clipped onto the clear plastic panels hanging over the doorway. By now people have turned to look at me, fists clenched, tangled in plastic and slightly confused. I quickly revise my ninja attack, settling for calmly untangling myself from the mess of plastic drapes and casually walking into the store.

I really know how to make an entrance.
