The Doctor (Bag) Is In

Doctor bags have been a love of mine for quite some time. I’ve always been drawn to them, but had a hard time finding one that didn’t look too bulky in my hand. So when I caught sight of this one by Jason Wu in store last year, I couldn’t stop thinking about her. I was still suffering from sticker shock due to my last handbag purchase, so after some time ohh-ing and ahh-ing over it at the handbag counter, I walked away hoping I could snag it for a better deal down the line. While I was price-watching, the bag sold out, and has regretfully been an item that “got away” ever since.

So when “Jason Wu handbags” appeared in the subject line of a My Habit (invite link) email, I held my breath as I clicked and scrolled my way through the sample sale deals. There was my handbag “that got away”…and with a hefty discount! She’s just as I remember…the perfect size in a beautiful shade of burgundy. My handbag collection is neglectfully small, so I’m happy to have her join the family.

On another note, the boyfriend and I were cracking up while taking these photos. We brought Clinton along and set him loose so he could hang out. He went crazy! He literally zipped back and forth in front of the camera in what I can only describe as pure glee. I laughed so hard I had tears running down my cheeks at the sight of the fur-ball bounding past me.

The Clinton says, “Weee!”

  • hahahaa those are great snaps of clinton. too silly, like a bouncing little sheep! i’ve never quite given “doctor bags” any thought and most people i see carry something that looks like a leather-ish computer bag. good old fashion creates a name for everything :) i like the burgundy shade though

    Aw man, if only I had known that the doctor bag style was going to be popular, I wouldn’t have tossed aside my real doctor bag! *sigh* This outfit is fabulous, and your puppy is so cute :)

    I love the bag Kelly & Clinton is so cute! :) I hate it when that one item “gets away” because it always gets me regretting not getting it sooner. Lucky you that you got a second chance to score it at a better price!

    I love that you got the bag you wanted, and I love that Clinton was included in the photo shoot even more. He looks so happy and made you guys happy, too! Maybe include him in more photo shoots?

    Excellent score! It never occurred to me to look for out of season stuff on those flash sale sites. That jacket is great, too – such a fun, feminine twist on the menswear look.

    Clinton is adorable! I think he is the ultimate accessory.

    That is one cute bag and so awesome that you scored it on discount after it got away. Best feeling ever. And how cute is Clinton bouncing in front of you. So cute!

    OMG Kelly, I laughed SO hard when I saw the last 2 pictures!! Clinton is simply adorable. So glad you found your bag, it’s beautiful. That happened to me in December and I still get a little sad when I think about it. And how on earth do you keep those curls looking so good all the time? I’m jealous…

    Cute bag – and I like the use of the dog as a size reference (he’s adorable!)
