Who doesn't love a good cappuccino? Especially when you can enjoy one from a sidewalk cafe table, watching the people go by. This is one of my favorite aspects of the classic Parisian experience, and one that I try to find the time to replicate back home in the Bay Area. People watching has always entertained me. The unspoken messages given by the clicking heels of businesswomen and the hooded sweatshirts of techies. When I carry a Whiting & Davis bag, the eye-catching metal mesh is always a conversation starter. Both men and women want to know what it's made of and where I got it. Handbag enthusiasts will excitedly ask if it's by Whiting & Davis. This midnight metallic bucket bag is my current favorite - a great day to evening bag that is versatile yet statement making, a combination that can be hard to come by. To me, this bag gives off the vibes of a long history - a little bit flapper, a little bit Bianca Jagger circa Studio 54 - in a contemporary, on-trend crossbody bucket bag shape. It lends a little luxury to casual jeans and a tee, perhaps like a pair of heels would. And when the bag catches the eyes of those on the sidewalk, I feel good.
