Yesterday I was flipping through the latest J. Crew catalog and came across this Edie bag. I love the detachable strap and the leather looks quite luscious in this pecan color. Although cute, and definitely a bag I do not have in my wardrobe, I was struck by the heavy-hitting tag line beneath the photo of it in the catalog. It said "It's the Bag of a Lifetime". Wow! I thought to myself (and then out loud to P as we commiserated over it in my kitchen), that is quite a statement! It actually made me pause and wonder if it really is the bag of a lifetime. At $238 it is on the pricier side, but if it is as major as J. Crew claims it to be than that seems like a mere pittance.
Please do me the honor by putting your two cents in below. Lust or Must?
