Over the weekend, I finally got to tour the new Neiman Marcus in Natick. My God, was the place delectable. It was like a very fashionable zoo. More tourists and window-shoppers than real patrons, perhaps some habitués from Saks or the old NM, but the items were all on display in shiny, gleaming, come-buy-me set-ups, and the sales people were very friendly (unlike some other locations, where if you're not dressed right, you're not treated right), so it was altogether a very lovely jaunt through the mall.
I almost waltzed by this one display when my honey pointed out this gorgeous clutch to me. With all the purses I own, I only have one Prada purse, and one wallet, both of which I only bought because it was impulsive and on sale. Well, this has got to be one of the first Prada pieces that I ever thought seriously about buying at retail, only because as a fall bag, it might sell out, and anyhow, I can see this being a very classic piece that will never look dated. Isn't the ombre gorgeous?
The clutch comes in three colors: gray to black, beige/brown to black, and gray to red to black. I LOVE the red. I want it soooooo badly, but I have been spending a lot lately, and I can't justify purchasing this clutch, as much as I love it. So I'm going to sit on this for about a week. If after a week, I still want it, and it's still available, then I think I will get it. Argh...temptation! This will be the longest wait ever!!!
