    Default Bulga Essex Tote

    Bulga Essex Tote



    Judging from everyone's reaction to the last time I talked about things I did in my childhood days, I'm guessing that either I was weird or everyone else was very boring. I can't believe nobody had origami frog competitions in grade school. Oh well, perhaps not everyone had teachers that were as creative as mine. The problem now is that I keep spotting bags that remind me of things I did when I was a kid. Don't believe me? Take this Bugla Essex Tote for example. Unfortunately, yes, I was one of those kids that tie-dyed her own T-shirts. But this bag doesn't just remind me of that. Just looking at the picture, I am also reminded of those color changing T-shirts that would turn white when they got hot. Does anyone remember those? And although I thought tie-dying was the bee's knees back then, you can safely assume that I wouldn't be caught dead wearing this bag now. Maybe, just maybe, I could see this bag being used as a beach bag. But an everyday handbag? No thank you! Tie-dye might have been cool on T-shirts at one time, but I don't recall it ever being cool on handbags (with, perhaps, the exception of a really nifty backpack).



    The Bugla Essex Tote is available in Tulip (Hot Pink) or Jessi (Tan) tie-dye denim. It measures 15" x 10.5" x 6" and it retails for a shameful $595. If you tie-dye just happens to be your thing, you can pick one of these babies up at shopbop

    I just remember a friend of mine had one on while in gym class. She was sweating and somehow the color changing dye transferred onto her sports bra. Then she had a hypercolor sports bra! ROFL!

    Hypercolor was a line of clothing, mainly T-shirts and shorts, that changed color with heat. They were manufactured by Generra (now a division of Public Clothing Company) and marketed in the United States as Generra Hypercolor or Generra Hypergrafix and outside the US as Global Hypercolor. They contained a thermochromic (temperature sensitive) pigment made by Matsui Shikiso Chemical of Japan, that changed between two colors–one when cold, one when warm. The shirts were produced with several color change choices from the late 1980s until the early 1990s. Unfortunately the effect could easily be permanently damaged, particularly when the clothing was placed in a hotter than recommended wash.


    Mine was just like the shirt in the middle! LMAO!
