My thoughts exactly!

In addition to shoe shopping, I’ve been doing a lot of bag shopping lately. Oh boy, have I learned to check a bag’s dimensions when shopping online! When did handbags become the size of overnighters? Recently, I ordered the most stunning bag from Nordstrom’s and was shocked when it arrived. It was over 18″ wide and, although gorgeous, looked completely ridiculous on me. Don’t get me wrong, I love a larger bag. This is Florida, it rains a lot and I like to keep an umbrella in my bag. A compact umbrella, not a golf umbrella.

I think a good rule of thumb is to carry a bag not much wider than your hips. For instance, my front hip measurement is 14″ so bags that are about that size offer the best proportion for me, especially since I am only 5’3″ tall. I bought the new In Style a couple of days ago and laughed out loud when I saw this:

Good. It’s not just me.

I’m a loser…

Even with repeated renewal reminders, I forgot to renew my Burda WOF in time to receive the April 2008 issue which is now, naturally, SOLD OUT!

I’ve already checked Ebay only to come up empty, boohoo. If you are reading this and have one you’d like to sell me please contact me at sewingbunny at hotmail dot com. Heaven forbid I should have a gap in my collection!

You can see a copy of it HERE

UPDATE 4/22/08 5:50 p.m.: Thank you all my wonderfully helpful sewing sisters! I have a copy winging it’s way to me as I type! Whew! I’d better check to make sure I renewed my Threads!
