Mini June Little Black Bag Unboxing

I opened up a second Little Black Bag in June because I had an exchange credit from my defective Lionel Francis satchel.  It wasn't a true bag in the sense that I picked a starting item and had stylist picks; I chose to just open up with the exchange item and keep the bag open for a week in case anything was released that I wanted to add to my bag.

I ended up adding only one item, but I would have purchased more if the summer sale hadn't started while I was working!  Usually the sale items are a bunch of ugly items that no one wants, but this time they actually had a lot of nice bags that I had been wanting, so of course I would miss them.  I suppose it's better off that way, it saved me probably somewhere around $50!

First, let me talk about this bag - the Big Buddha Marin Hobo in Coral.  It is gorgeous!  I don't think it was a very popular bag on the site, probably because it's more on the plain size, but I absolutely love it.  I had been eyeing it for a while, but since not a lot of people ever had them in their bags it was hard to trade for them.  The retail value on this is $90 I think, so the fact that I didn't have to pay anything other than shipping was definitely a win (well, not counting whatever the prorated value of the Francis satchel was).  The faux leather is very soft, the color is perfect, and I absolutely adore the chain detail on the strap!  The only downside is that since the chain is so heavy, when I set the bag down anywhere it kind of caves in on itself under the weight of the strap.  There are 10 of these left in cobalt in the gallery and one left in coral, so if you like what you see I highly recommend this bag.

 Next up are my crazy lady cat shoes!  I think these are so funny and I love them, regardless of how ridiculous they are.  They're the C. LABEL Judy-1C Oxford and I know they're a knockoff of some other, more expensive brand, but I just liked them because they're cats.  I didn't love them enough to ever open with them, but when they went on sale for $10 I said, "yes, please!"  The original retail price was $50, I think.  I wore them out to dinner the day that I got them, and I found that they're a bit uncomfortable to wear.  The hard tops don't have a ton of give, so my toes ended up hurting a little bit.  I'm not sure if this will go away as I break them in more, but even if it doesn't I don't really care because I just love them anyway.  They make me laugh.

Bottom Line: This is probably one of the more boring Little Black Bags I've ever shared, but I like I said, it wasn't a "real" bag that I traded for.  The entire bit cost me about $16, so I can't complain.
