“My problem is that I have such expensive taste. Everything I like costs a fortune.”
Pow. Right in the kisser. Nothing worse than a gal who pats herself on the back while pretending to self-deprecate.
But what to do when you really do yearn for something beautiful beyond your means — like those Knoll furnishings you so hopelessly drool over?
Don’t blow the budget on Tulip tables, Womb chairs, and Haussmann couches just yet, tiger. Heather Howard Handbags uses Knoll textiles to create small- and medium-size purses for around $100. Each has a pattern (Plus, Suburban, Hula Hoop, or Hologram, all available in four colors) on the outside and a different fabric (Glo or Reflect) on the inside.
They also have simple braided-metal handles, as well as an interior pocket (the perfect place to store all that money you’re saving). So you can flaunt your expensive taste and frugal ingenuity at the same time — without saying a word.
Unlike some people you know.
