>> I may have been a bit late stepping on to the Kara-loving bandwagon (discovered after a few excited clicks over at Opening Ceremony in anticipation of their USA vs. Belgium takeover, where I hope to re-indulge in my obsession with all things Antwerp Six) but seeing as my bag like quota can be a bit on the lowside, I always surprise myself everytime I do come across a new bag brand, I'm genuinely into.  Kara is short for Karaoke (another reason to be into it) and is designed by Parsons graduate Sarah Law.  From a simple repetoire of convertible backpacks with detachable straps and small collapsible zippered shoulder bags, Law has expanded for A/W 13-4 and for resort 2014 to experiement with materials likelavender and burgandy shearling, stucco-patterned calf hair and a sporty double layered mesh.  It's the shapes that instantly grab you though with their no-fuss simplicity and pragmatic zippers.  One hazard I find with buckled backpacks is the lack of ease in getting stuff out quickly, so much so that I have to make sure I have extra pockets for holding the things that need to be at hand all the time (phone, Oyster, spare change).  I also happen to be one of those people that get inexplicably embarrassed and red-faced if I hold up a queue or a line for more than two seconds so a zippered backpack that can be slung round to the front quickly is ideal.  And obviously any opportunity to relive those Clueless backpack moments are more than welcome.

    Not a huge fan of the furry bits.. but the leather one shoulder backpack is great!

  2. Oh no, I love these bags but I’m trying to save money! Now I have to control myself…I hate having to control myself, I’m not very good at it.

    I love the assortment of blue and white china! And I cannot wait for the opportunity to go to fleamarkets around the world. It sounds so very intriguing. I hope you feel better!
