While I’m often quick to make judgments, I like to think I have an open mind, so I’ve been revisiting the Alexander Wang Coco/Rocco bag since my snarky condemnation of it yesterday. With T coming to the bag’s defense and undeniable style icons like Rihanna and MK Olsen sporting the duffel, I had to take a second look.
After reviewing countless photos of the bag on celebs (actresses, singers and bloggers alike), I’ve come to a conclusion. I get it – the instantaneous rocker chic feel it gives to any outfit, the thick, pebbled leather that makes you want to touch it, the so-right-now studs. Seeing the bag in such a range of ensembles, I can understand its appeal much more than I did yesterday. Have I completely done a 360 though? No. While I now get why this studded duffel is on so many women’s want lists, it still won’t be making mine anytime soon. Donning a leather jacket is about as rocker chic as this Backseat Styler gets. Besides, I need to be saving my $850 for my $2k Acne jeans fund. Ha!
