Every store has a slightly different inventory, so it's often worth while to check out different locations, if you have the time.
Such was the case with this bag. I initially found it in black, and in two sizes. I loved the shape, the feel of the leather, and the smell. The drop handles are comfortable, and the optional cross-body strap is convenient. If you ever shop with me, you'd notice I'm a very tactile shopper, especially when it comes to bags. I usually pick them up and carry them around with me while I shop.
Even though I really liked the bag in black, I had a small reservation. So I left it behind. Then when I stepped into the next TJs, the bag in brown was the first thing I laid eyes on, and I knew I was taking it.
Here are the rest of my T.J.Maxx scores in action:
P.S. What a difference a day makes! Notice how I went from tights and boots to bare legs and sandals? The weather is being indecisive. Low 30's on Saturday, low 70's on Sunday. Silly New England.
