It’s quite possible this is not the first bag the Shop Tart will refer to as the coolest ever, nor will it be the last. But it is mad cool and she wants one of you to have it, so she can covet it.
Charlotte Olympia is new to Coplon’s, as is Mulberry, which constitutes a small but excellent British invasion. That sweet minaudière reminded the Shop Tart of her days in retail, when some stores required employees to carry clear bags so they could easily be searched as they left the store. So (NOT) much fun to haul around your stuff in a see-through bag, especially during that time when you need to carry “special products for ladies.” Also, it’s nobody’s business if you carry twelve different colors of lipstick, just in case. Or zit cream, or three different shades of concealer. Or a spare bra. Charlotte Olympia’s bag, while it would not hold twelve different varieties of lip product, totally feels you. There are three chic little pouches inside.
Though they look fab together, you could always use just one or two if you needed more room. Or you could use them in other bags. The possibilities are many. Practicality aside, what a cool bag. Just look at the spider clasp! So rock star, yet demure and sophisticated.
Speaking of rock stars, you might like to party like one, whatever that means. The Shop Tart is a fan of party shoes that stay on her feet, because if there’s a dance floor, she’s on it. And if there isn’t one? She’s clearing out a space and getting her iPod from the car. Anyhow, her party shoes have to be sparkly and practical. Robert Clergerie is a genius.
While Coplon’s is filling with glorious things for fall, they still have some good stuff on the sale racks, so don’t miss your chance. Shop Tart Tip: Stop by next door Sakura for a quick lunch to fortify your shopping. Miso with fried eel or salmon, or okra. Looks weird, tastes great!
So…are you planning your looks for fall or still milking summer fashion for all it’s worth?
