What’s going on?? As I go through the new arrivals of 2008 F/W handbags, I just get more and more frightened by those bizarre designs. 

I know nothing about bags, the little bit I do know I learned from the Bagsnob.  I think they’ll probably agree with me that it is the season of nightmares.

The Miu Miu Napa Patch Tote which was disapproved by Tina actually looked cute after I saw the other three bags.  Just take a look at the Carlos Falchi Buffalo Anaconda Bag, need I say more? It’s hard to tell whether it looks more like a buffalo or an anaconda, or maybe some monster in between.

And the Jimmy Choo Fringe Hobo, it reminds me of an apartment mate who hangs strands of her own hair (after they’ve been cut) on the side of her closet.  After that, seeing anything with fringes always gives me the creeps.

The Valentino Rosier Tote would be fine if only the colors are a little rosier (didn’t they have a red version?). The only good thing I can say about this bag is it remotely resembles Van Gogh’s Starry Night.

The list can go on and on.  But there’s a positive side to everything, in this case it’s that we can save money from the bags and have more budget on shoes, which look fabulous this season, starting from the Something Blue Satin Pump!
