[ introducing jameson ]

LET ME just start by saying that my guy is fun to shop with. Especially when he has a purpose. Bag shopping with him this weekend was an absolute blast!

We headed to Dubai Mall, straight to the Fashion Avenue area, that wing of the mall where I might pop my head in to drool over Herm├ęs or Chanel or Louis Vuitton to kill time on a hot afternoon. Going there to buy something was giving me heart palpitations.

I hadn't slept the night before ~ too excited and weighing the pros and cons of what type of bag I would choose ~ something small and cute? Maybe a larger casual bag? Perhaps something for travel?

After a lot of browsing and comparing, I finally settled on a Burberry Jameson tote...


I was lacking a good sized tote and knew it would be perfect for travelling. Love the dark orange leather accents...


But my favourite part? Clip the two sides together...


And voila! A completely different bag! Two bags in one!


I love that it morphs into a bag suitable for use anytime ~ making it the perfect bag to travel with too ~ tote your stuff on the plane, then use it as your purse. It fits my iPad and camera with plenty of room to spare. It's classic, will never go out of style and durable. The perfect bag. Now that was fun!

How awesome that your guy is a good shopper. So many men dread it. Love your choice. Classic and big enough to tote around everything you need. xo
