Twinsie Tuesday: Handbag Inspired

In addition to my evident nail polish addiction, I am obsessed with bags.  And I'm a snob at that.  I'm very particular about what I like and will do copious amounts of research before a purchase.  And don't even get me started on a bag that's not genuine leather.  

Since today's TT post is inspired by our handbag, I was a bit stumped.  I have many, many bags that I change with the season, my outfit, and my mood on a daily basis.  How can I be inspired by the many beauties I have in my closet?  To make matters a bit easier for myself, I chose to be inspired by the last bag I bought, a vintage Anna Corinna (precursor to the popular urban chic Foley + Corinna brand) grey leather Mid City Tote. 

I couldn't find the exact bag I own since the Anna Corinna line doesn't exist anymore, but this is basically what my new bag looks like but with a bit more distressed leathering.

A roomy and causal weekend bag in a cool neutral is perfect for spring.  And so is Revlon Leather Skinnies, a new subtly textured polish from the Leather and Tweed Collection for Spring 2014.  While I'm not a textured maniac, I do appreciate the slight wrinkling in the blue-leaning grey creme.  

This is two coats.

A little bit of a cheat for this week, but totally justified, right?
