You can get away with bright colors in warm, seaside climates. Back home in relatively dull New England, not so much. And while I’m always tempted to bring some of this flash home with me whenever I’m in Tucson, Morocco, Turkey or here in Rhodes, I’ve learned (through experience) to resist. It reminds me of Fran Lebowitz’s advice not to get a haircut when you’re on vacation, especially (in her case) when you’re away from New York City. Still, these bags were pretty eye-catching.
