Mondays always bring out a really strange feeling for me. It’s almost like I can picture myself back in college, getting ready for class and/or work and striving to set the positive pace for a productive work week. When I was in college, one of the very first nicer handbags I purchased for myself was a Botkier bag from Lori’s Shoes on Armitage Avenue in Chicago. I will never forget the amazing way it made me feel to carry my Botkier. Still to this day, I continue to have a very special place in my heart for this stylish and quality line of handbags. There is something edgy, yet sophisticated about it and I still swoon over their collections years later.
