Embroidery bags are making a comeback this fall and I'm torn between liking and hating it. On one hand, I can't shake the granny feeling about the bags especially some of the cross stitched ones, but on the other, people like Jason Wu are giving us this chinoiserie embroidered and beaded box clutch which is quite pretty with its Asian aesthetic in a classy way and then flipping around to give us the Ming embroidered hobo bag which frankly looks like any bag you can pick up at those souvenir shops in TST for HK$50 a pop. It's almost like he's testing my limits of flip flopping emotions. And the more I look at it, the more it seems my dislike for the hobo is affecting the clutch. Hmm, what do you think? Love it or hate it?
