The Glamour Less is back at it after a short delay earlier this week. Between a fireworks-filled Fourth of July and stormy weather that knocked my power out for hours on end, blog posts had to take a temporary hiatus while life took over for a moment. But that all seems to be over now, and I’ll be bringing you two posts to close out this week and should be back to regular posting thereafter.
About two weeks ago, I took the plunge and ordered a handbag online through MyHabit (which, if you don’t subscribe, is Amazon’s response to Rue La La, Gilt, etc. and is a great place to discover new brands). I say “plunge” because I’m rather averse to ordering clothing and accessories online without first viewing them in-person or knowing a bit about the brand, but at that point, I had been handbag shopping for so long I felt desperate enough to risk it. A little backstory: Since May, I had been searching for a small but sturdy crossbody bag that could become my summer go-to. I wanted something I could take with me to casual events, like farmers’ markets, outdoor movies, and patio brunches, and I knew I wanted my bag to be genuine leather at a reasonable price.
