Mitch Harper over at Fort Wayne Observed has been hosting some light patter about Vera Bradley bags, one of the Fort’s cottage-industries-made-good. They’re not my cuppa — I’m a Coach girl, and probably always will be — but you have to give them the Knuckle Punch of Respect for their success.
Anyway, Mitch found a column in some Arkansas weekly making fun of the grannyish bags, and replied with a wire photo of the very fashion-foward Kirsten Dunst carrying one, albeit on a dress-down day.
As a professional journalist, however, I need to point out that he chose the wrong picture. This is the one he wanted:
There’s ma girl Kirsten, showin’ the Vera luv. And you thought they were just for your grandma.
