Frugal Friday: Armani Jeans Logo Plaque Shoulder Bag

I can’t remember the last time we featured an Armani Jeans bag on the site. That may very well be because we never have before. But there’s a first time for everything! Just goes to show you should never say never.

As we head towards the end of summer (noooo!), there is one thing we don’t need to leave behind. While nautical prints and caftans will have to move to the back of closet, there’s a certain fabric that gets to remain front and center: Canvas.
