Kate Spade Bag - Are they for real?

Seriously?

All Typed Up Clyde Bag by Kate Spade - $495

I understand "Whimsey" is all the rage but this is just silly and stupid and way over the top. They say on their site "to brighten up your 9 to 5" but I think I would be a little frightened to carry this into the office. It's not office-chic, in my opinion. While I do think there is a place for "playful" in the workspace, when surrounded by a bunch of user-centered designers and presented with a non-functional keyboard on a bag... yeah, not so cool. Now if I actually could type using my bag while my computer takes 20 minutes to start up, that might be cool. But then why would I have my iPhone?

Things that make you go hmmm....

  1. I have never lusted after a $500 bag. I have never really lusted after a bag, period. But OH MY GOD I want this bag. SO. BADLY.

  2. Haza Kaza - Well, to each their own I guess. I thought it was ridiculous. :) But if it works for you, go for it. :)

  10. I bought this bag on ebay because I was late to the party. I can't tell you how many people tap me on the shoulder, etc., to ask me where I got it, who makes it, and that they love it. No other bag has received that reaction.

    It's either a love it or hate it, and I love it. And everyone I've talked to loves it. But I guess that those who hate it don't talk to me. But it's OK. I think it's a fun bag.
