It's a Kooba Lola, and it's beautiful.
I've always been very interested in fashion, but never really able to afford (or bring myself to pay the incredible sums) for the brands I like, especially when it comes to handbags. But, after a year of debating and mulling over brands and styles, I finally decided to buy a Kooba.
Maybe for some, Kooba bags are inexpensive, but for the Pittsburgh native, just of of college, underpaid career woman that I am, they are pricey, and definitely not an everyday purchase.
I consider Kooba an in-between luxury brand: more expensive than Coach, yet less expensive than say, Chloe (dream brand that I hope someday to afford...ahhh wishful thinking). And, to tell you the truth, I'm not always about the labels; I don't really like Coach handbags. They seem too prim and proper for me. Kooba's bags, on the other hand, are slouchy, soft leather with excellent detailing, and just my style.
I may be hooked now. I sort of want another Kooba bag...the Harper. Hmm....maybe if I get this supposed tax rebate, I'll go for it. This could get dangerous.
I'm debuting the Lola tomorrow, and I'm pumped. During my commute, my F train neighbors will be so jealous of me nodding off clutching my beautious cream tote. And maybe, just maybe, I'll feel like a true, respectable and fashionable New Yorker as I strut to work in Soho.
