Don't be fooled.
I just saw a commercial for "The Buxton Over the Shoulder Organizer". It's claims are genuine leather and organization so perfect, that you can find things in your purse blindfolded! Gone are the days when you have to dump out your purse to find your cellphone!
Dear Buxton Bag Makers:
I am not fooled. Let us begin with your claim that your bag is real leather for only $19.99. Real Leather Is NEVER $19.99 (what part of the bag is "real leather"? the strap?)
You also claim that this "chic" bag looks great with any outfit.
I can promise you that you will NOT see anyone with any sense of fashion (actually I can think of Melanie Griffith wearing this... But definitely not Angelina Jolie or Nicole Kidman) wearing this bag. This bag screams "my grandma will totally love this for Christmas".
Lastly, you claim that this amazing bag organizes everything. Your commercial shows a pretty blond and blindfolded model picking up a pair of glasses from the purse. How many takes did it take for the blonde to pick up the glasses blindfolded? Was there anything else in the purse or did you make it easy for her? Yes I went there. I just went there. My point is that if you gave me this purse, I can guarantee you that I will still end up searching around for my keys and my cellphone.
Just call it what it is.
