Shame on Prada!

One of the most coveted bags of the 2008 Spring/Summer season has turned out to be nothing more than a poorly made hype. Modeled here on Hilary Duff, the bag sold out at Neiman Marcus in just 2 days at the price of $2,290. Seen as more of a piece of "art," and a future investment, many women have done everything in their power to get their hands on one of these purses. Unfortunately, reports circulating on the internet say that there are defects with this new "it" bag. Apparently, the ink starts bleeding as soon as a few rain drops hit the leather! This is an outrage! Personally, this bag does not excite me, and I would only wear it with an all black outfit, to keep it from looking too juvenile. Also, I stopped wearing fairies in 2001. This design belongs in Mariah Carey's closet. Either way, unlike a Chanel or a Balenciaga bag, it just seems like another "fad" bag, which in five years from now women will find in the back of their closets and ask themselves what they were thinking. How do designers expect women to respect copyright laws when prestigious fashion houses are making shitty products? I've never been a huge fan of the Milan based company, but this is just upsetting. Okay, I'm done venting.
