Maggie Alderson is a firm believer in heaven – handbag heaven that is. Why else would finding a vintage Kelly bag seem like a blessing and resisting that Jamin Puech bag feel so hellish?In this witty and irreverent book Maggie Alderson guides you through not only the perils of shopping but also everyday life, explaining among other things why even the smallest clothing purchase is a major life decision, and why Buddha was right when he said 'the root of all suffering is desire' . . . especially when it comes to Ricky Martin.Open up Alderson's bag of goodies to find out about fashion, beauty myths, her theory of shopping relativity, hair, and cockroaches (ahem). No subject is off limits and no bag remains unturned.
