Yes, I would definitely wear a patent leather bag. I have one that’s black and dark purple. I wouldn’t be able to afford those in your “splurge” section that you recommended, and I highly doubt Sienna’s bag is afforable, but the “Natasha” patent tote in White is really cute at baghaus.com. I’m sorry that Zou Zou purse at JCPenny is very unattractive IMO. The bag from The Gap isn’t that bad, the blue is very pretty. Sienna’s bag is very nice and the size is just right for me, I love big bags.

Ummm…a little big for my taste.
