Remember my post about THE STRIPED TEE? This is it. It was crazy, I thought I ordered it and then was asked what I thought about it and realized it never arrived. I checked, it never came out of my PayPal, and I never received a confirmation email. No idea what happened, luckily they were still in stock so I ordered again. And well… it's the darn closest I have found! It's a better quality knit, better made, has washed great without any change in size or condition. The stripes are a bit smaller and not even, but I still like it (I bought two and am glad about it). Like my original striped tee, this is a relaxed fit, not one to tuck in or try to glam up. I wore this look the other weekend running errands, and then unrolled the jeans, slipped on my Chelsea boots and my black puffer vest for the evening.
I haven't featured this bag on the blog for almost a year (previous posts with it) but use it regularly. This past Wednesday I used it when Emerson and I went to see Gloria Steinem speak at the Sixth and I Synagogue; it was big enough to hold stuff for both of us and easily switches from shoulder to crossbody. Saturday morning, a friend stopped by and asked about the bag and wondered how it worked as a backpack and I realized I never used it in such a manner. So that day I decided to wear it as a backpack and I gotta say it's pretty comfortable and easy to use and slip back to a standard bag. This bag has been through a lot, carried heavy and awkward loads and still looks like new. Made in the USA by a woman-owned company? Big fan!
