From The Police Blotters: Some Bags Are Worth a Splurge, Others Are An Actual Steal

November 15, 2007 by SheFindsJennifer

The black market just got a whole lot more fashionable, especially since burglars are now just as fashion savvy as the designers they steal from. A few notable shops in London recently faced raids–not by impatient shoppers frustrated by mile-long waitlists for this season’s bags but rather by some very sophisticated thieves. They knew exactly what they were taking, too: a couple of Stams from Marc Jacobs, a Lautner or two from Anya Hindmarch, and I’m guessing more than a few garbage bags full of Luella Bartley Bernies.

While it is sad to think of those gorgeous pieces of arm candy ending up in the wrong hands, I almost find myself living vicariously through these “glam raiders” and guiltily compiling a little list in my head of a few choice bags I’d love to swipe from their protected display cases.

The first place I’d hit would have to be Chanel. I can just imagine myself now gleefully scooping up armfuls of quilted black leather beauties with gold hardware. And while I wouldn’t turn down a Stam, I might be able to deal with the shame of being handcuffed if it meant somehow attaining a Nancy Gonzalez Cream Crocodile Satchel. Call me crazy but this Metallic Plaited Drawstring Tote beats out a Lautner any day. I guess while I'm on my way to hell, I might as well pick up a little Prada for the Devil herself. 

We’d love to know which bags you deem nab-worthy. Here are more of ours:

(If you really want to carry a great bag but can't afford to buy it, don't commit larceny. Instead, go to Bag Borrow or Steal and rent one for a few weeks.)
