"I came back to New York and bought myself a purse. Well, it’s not a purse exactly; it’s a bag. It’s definitely the best bag I have ever owned. On it is the image of a New York City MetroCard—it’s yellow (taxicab yellow, to be exact) and blue—so it matches nothing at all and therefore, on a deep level, matches everything." Nora Ephron

 

Vinyl; 15 x 4 x 11 inches (LxWxH), 11 inch drop.
