I think (know) I am a bit of a hoarder.  I love purses, shoes, boots, cardigans, pens (yes, pens), watches, umbrellas and have far too many of each, but can't stop myself from getting more.  As much as I admire those who make the decision to live a minimalist life (a la these two hunky dudes), I also very much admire beautiful things.  Sigh.

Anyways, the newest addition to my purse family is the Michael Kors Ostrich Stamped Satchel in Crimson, which I got from Saks (although they only have the tourquoise left now).  I opted to get the standard shipping to Canada to save myself a few bucks and, as a result, it took almost a month to get to me.  Really, how is this possible?  I live in Canada, not Timbuktu.  Anyways, crazy long delivery time aside....here it is. 

The red is so perfect - not too blue and not too orange.  The inside is large enough to allow me to carry my standard items without being cavernous (I really am not into massive purses) and the two side pockets will make getting my phone convenient.  The leather is a really nice quality.  The only complaint I had was the shoulder strap that came with it.  As you can see on the model on the Saks website, it is really long and it is that way IRL too, with very little room to shorten.  And...the way that it was secured made the "detachable" strap literally impossible to remove - I had to resort to cutting it off, which is fine for me - I never use the shoulder straps anyways - but I'm sure many do, and when you're paying that much for a purse, this should be an option!!  But, as I said, I don't ever use detachable straps, so it's really fine for me.

What do you think of this purse?
