We're fond of our lil' Outblush Editorial family, and are usually in accord regarding product selection, but sometimes we look at an item that a fellow editor has chosen and do a double take. Which is why we bring you Agree To Disagree, a new feature that'll show you another side to all the happy-sappy product love we've got goin' on and allow you, the readers, to decide whether that item really is crave or cringe-worthy.
Reusable grocery bags are both convenient and eco-conscious - there is no doubt about that. And while the baguette quiver on the Sac à Baguette satchel is a fabulously clever modification, $300 is an outlandish price to pay for something you can get at Trader Joes for 99 cents ($2.99 if you want it insulated). As far as we can tell the bag is made of study canvas and leather - not woven bald eagle feathers and unicorn tail-hair. If the Sac could do the shopping, make a mean coq co vin, and tidy up afterwards, then perhaps the hefty price tag would be worth it. But, since it's just a satchel with French bread sheath we'll stick with stuff like this.
