The great bag hunt

The leather Kenneth Cole messenger bag that I ended up buying.

I am at the Tumi store politely listening to a salesman list features of various messenger bags and briefcases.

Several bags are too bulky for my tastes. Others look like “old man briefcases.” Some look like purses.

One of the messenger bags has most of the features that I want. The salesman tells me it’s $500. I quickly leave the store.

My search for a professional laptop bag is in its fourth hour and I feel ridiculous. My previous bags from Tumi and Kenneth Cole are worn and ratty from years of abuse, but everything nice is out of my price range. I finally turn to Amazon. Continue reading “The great bag hunt” »

Accessories Dallas

Dallas Summer Kickoff With WeWOOD

Katy Trail Ice House

Summer has finally arrived in Dallas!

I started this summer with a much-needed upgrade to my wardrobe thanks to new WeWOOD sunglasses and a watch.

WeWOOD is a company that makes wooden accessories out of recycled wood. They also plant a tree for every wristwatch or pair of sunglasses sold to help with reforestation efforts around the world.

The company is currently running a Fathers’ Day special – use the code WWFD16 at checkout to get free shipping and a pin removal tool that allows you to resize your watch without having to visit a store. (I had to resize mine)

I didn’t realize that my accessories game was so bad.

Like a bad gay, I was perfectly happy wearing my old scratched-up wristwatch and free plastic sunglasses from Out of The Closet. That is, until I got upgraded by the WeWOOD team.

I obnoxiously wore the sunglasses and watch all weekend. The wood is really light, and looks expensive without being too flashy. (Dallas gays are never flashy, right?)

…and what a Memorial Day Weekend we had…
