Fauchon Je T'aime beaucoup, especially the macarons...But I love even more their snazzy cabas. I've been carrying them for like years... Every single time I go to Paris I buy a new one to replace the last one. Hey ( 19.90€) this is highly doable. M. was with me a few years back and convinced me to go for the all-black version - more chic and elegant she said. She was right. No matter how many fancy pocketbooks I buy and I've stopped, because I always revert back to my Fauchon cabas. It holds EVERYTHING I need and more. I bought this adorable Kusmi tea cabas (10 euros) and don't you know, entering customs at CDG, the handles broke clean off! Give me my Fauchon anyday.I picked up this big cabas from BHV (only 3,50 €) It's time to buy a new one don't you think? I use it to carry my swim gear to the pool. Sorry/desole BHV, I have not treated you well... This cabas at Pylones I fought over a bit with another customer and I WON. Yay
Vanessa Bruno very cleverly came up with a high-end cabas - 300 € or $300 dollars, either way I ain't gonna spring for that! Not the way I treat my cabas...
Anne like a good French girl, loves her Vanessa Bruno cabas and takes good care of it.
I have four bags from the Sonia/H&M sale and I have no idea what to do with them. Shall I sell them on eBay? Ha!
In one of my earlier, crazier periods at PB, I was making my own mini cabas so I could paint them in still lifes. One's past obssessions are always amusing to look back on...
I would love a cabas with French handwriting on it especially if it was a BEN - that I would spring for!!!
