I want you, I need you, oh baby, oh baby...

Oh. Em. Gee. Somebody stop me from pulling out my credit card this very second. Must remember to breathe.

I have officially found a new bag lemming.

So... On occasion, I find myself possessed by the spirit of a bag-a-holic (who am I kidding - this is me all of the time) and I see a purse that I must have. Right now. Right this very moment or I will absolutely just die.

How often do I actually buy these bags? Well, considering most of my obsessions come in the form of Balenciaga and Chanel... The answer is pretty much never. I do, on very rare occasions, splurge on a lovely Botkier or Kooba (on super-clearance at Nordstrom's half-yearly sale of AWESOMENESS) But other than that... Le sigh. So sad... I know! Ugh.

Anyway, I digress. Back to the obsession at hand. It's not completely outrageously priced... (ignore this statement - it's just my way of trying to justify the stupid price tag to myself) But it's so pretty!


This is the Felix Ray Madison Clutch - currently on sale at Plaza Too for $223.50.

Now, okay... I know it's a clutch. I know that means I realistically won't really use it all that often. I know it doesn't fit very much in it (though at 9" x 5.5" it's a pretty decent size for a clutch). I know all of these things, and yet... I can't stop myself from drooling.

Just look how shiny! And the sparkles... OH, the sparkles!

I have a severe mental problem, don't I?

And uh... Since we're on the topic of bag lemmings...

Here's another one!

This is the Olivia Harris Zip Pocket Round Sack in Grey and look - even Tina (The Bag Snob) approves! Oh, how I love it... It's large (I LOVE giant bags, I can't help it! This one is 10.5" x 5" x 14.75") and slouchy and the Italian lambskin leather looks amazing smooshy (yes, this is indeed a technical term) and I just want it! I've been into a lot of grey lately... Well, okay, me and the rest of the planet, but I've definitely embraced this particular trend as my own.

This fabulous bag probably won't break the bank, especially when compared to most of the purses featured on Bag Snob, but the price certainly isn't anything to cheer about - it will run you $395.

Major le sigh. I need to win the lottery.

So, how about you? Any bags you absolutely-cannot-live-without-must-have-right-this-very-second? I know I can't be the only crazy one around!
