“I’m not a plastic bag”

I always look forward to receiving my WhoeWhatWear emails every weekday morning, especally when they are profiling handbags.

I have to admit, after seeing it around so much, I’m starting to get interested in the “I’m not a plastic bag” by Anya Hindmarch. I have a kitchen cabinet full of plastic bags I have toted home from stores (WHY must they double bag everything?) and would love a reusable, fabric alternative. Especially one that is also used by supermodels.

It will be interesting to see if the bag takes off in the US as much as it has everywhere else. I’m keeping an eye out.

More info from The Bag Snob.

Update: I just read via Fashionista that this bag will also be sold at Whole Foods starting June 20th.

New on the Web

Some great shopping blogs have recently hit the interwebs:

Racked: New York is the most recent site from the Curbed family. And like Curbed it is very Manhattan-centric, which of course I love. Posts with big news from the Gap and deals at the Duane Reade got my attention right away, but its the more unique tidbits like the Racked reviews that will keep me coming back.

Fashionista is the latest from Elizabeth Spiers, the founding editor of another one of my online addictions Gawker.com. Fashionista is a fun site that doesn’t take itself too seriously, with cute handwritten posts. The site stands out because of Do it Yourself tips, and pics of the well dressed.
