For the Love of Gwen


Do you see that face? That, my friends is the face of true contentment. Why, you may ask, am I all fuzzy-hearted? That's because I am now the proud owner of my first ever HARAJUKU LOVERS bag.

Even the mini buckles are fetch.
Comes with a mini GWEN caricature charm/ornament.
the heart-shaped velcro closures were probably what really did it for me. 
I've always loved Gwen Stefani's style, and ever since she launched L.A.M.B., I've been lusting for her items. But, when you're a grad student, lusting is all you can really do. Especially when you're a liberal arts grad student. I've been searching for a small messenger/satchel that I could use over the weekends or on casual days. I was this close to purchasing either a Coach or a D&B one (outlets are great for poor, grad students to get their fashion fixes) but am so glad I found this one instead. It's much more me. 


  1. This handbag makes my heart sing ! I Love HL ! I also Love the HK plush, too cute. We are definitely kindred spirits.

  2. I know what you mean about the lusting and never being able to act on it. Damn you grad school.

  11. That bag is so cute! I can't afford LAMB either... the only thing I have from Gwen is a Lesportsac duffle, which is ancient in fashion years. Life of a working student, right? xo
