Accessories Editor Challenge: 30 Bags in 30 Days, Day 19

I think this one was meant to be--this morning, as I was grabbing a trustyold favorite from my closet, this Comme des Garcons bag fell off a highershelf and hit me in the head. I received it as a gift from my boyfriend(eventually husband) about eight years ago (he had help picking it out...),and I wore it to DEATH. Since it's actually pleather, it's not built for thekind of abuse I put my bags through. That's why I barely carry it, for fearof it ripping (or actually disintegrating--doesn't pleather disintegrate?).It's a total black-hole bag, a size that's not the best for a hoarder like me(two lip glosses, movie tickets from 2009, and a hundred million taxireceipts were unearthed from it this morning). But I'm having fun carryingit today--total nostalgia from my days as a young accessories editor.
