Just One More Day

Lizzie Wirgau

by Tiffanie Brunson Each of us, at one time or another, has experienced the agonizing predicament of having something that’s out of reach consume our thoughts. Whether it’s the end of a school semester, a video game that doesn’t come out until next month, or maybe it’s some much needed R&R with your pals. For me, it’s the new Market Colors clutch. Don’t laugh. This is serious.

For those of you who don’t know, I’m Lizzie Wirgau’s roommate. Living with Lizzie comes with its perks. One of those perks is getting to see what Market Colors products are coming up before they are introduced. In this case, this perk has been to my detriment. Let me preface my rant by saying that I think all of Market Colors’ products are stylish and fun. But this clutch . . . I’m obsessed with it.

Ever since I saw this clutch (see below) last week, I haven’t stopped thinking about it. I have a serious problem. I’m faced daily with the challenge of putting together an outfit and realizing that it would be a jillion (It’s a real number. Look it up, I dare you.) times cooler if I only had that clutch! Do you have any idea how frustrating that is??

It may be “unhealthy” to let such an ephemeral thing run rampant in your thoughts, but is it really? After all, this product is making a lasting impact on the life of the person whose hands crafted it.

So, my silly obsession isn’t so silly after all. Take that, capitalism! One more day, just one more day . . . .

The Market Colors clutch, along with many other new winter items, is available for purchase beginning Wednesday, November 14th at http://store.marketcolors.org/.
