What...this tatty old thing?

It's true what they say, your memory can play tricks on you...so...although I remember visiting the renowned discount store Tati when I lived in Paris...I don't actually recall what (if anything) I bought...in fact the only overwhelming memory is of the pink and white gingham pattern which was the store's hallmark.

A memory which was instantly summoned up when I caught a glance of Mayle's Tati bag. A bag which, on first glance, has a gorgeous chic-older-lady vibe...a bag that you could imagine stuffing full of life's necessities and carrying as you venture forth on a cold winter's day...a bag which...has no sides? Described as "a chic way to carry files or folders" I have to wonder how many people actually need a bag for this purpose...I certainly don't remember having seen this style before...of course, memory being what it is that isn't conclusive evidence...

    Well, that's something that I'll never be buying.

    Yes, this one had me rather stumped too...my love was for the pattern, not the rather unusual bag design.

    My first thought when I saw this was, "huh?"

    While a bag like this makes going through the security line at government facilities a lot quicker, the threat of causing a scene with an explosion of papers doesn't justify buying such a "bag." The pattern is awesome, though.
