    Default J.J. Winters Single Zip Bag in Iris

    J.J. Winters Single Zip Bag in Iris #1


    In order to help make ends meet, my dad took on a second job as an auto mechanic at some point during my childhood. I was pretty young back then, but there is one memory that stands out in my mind for some reason. I remember sitting outside the shop where my dad worked and looking down at the puddles in the driveway. I could see my reflection, along with eerie-looking rainbows slowly moving and changing shape whenever the wind caused a ripple in the puddle. This memory is what popped into my mind when I saw the J.J. Winters Single Zip Bag in Iris #1. At first glance, this bag looks like the rainbows I saw in that oil-contaminated rain water. But wait... why then, is the color called "Iris #1"? It turns out that upon closer inspection, those blobs of color are actually supposed to be a pixelated floral pattern. Well... that certainly was unexpected. Especially since I typically think of J.J. Winters bags as being suede (and fringed!). But I suppose the J.J. Winters Single Zip Bag in Iris #1 does have its charm. It would probably go well with that skinny black jeans + white T-shirt look. However, I don't think that this is a bag that I would buy without it hitting the sale section first. After all, it is pretty trendy.



    Find the J.J. Winters Single Zip Bag in Iris #1 at Revolveclothing.com, where it currently sells for $462.

    I can't wait to see how #2 looks.

    I really like most bags by JJ Winters, but not really this one. Don't get me wrong, I think this bag looks really interesting, but it's not my favorite.

    Yikes!!! Totally agree with your analogy BrS.

    To me it looks like oil contaminated water puddle seen through a mesh screen.

    Definitely a departure. I agree it could work with skinnies, white t-shirt, leather jacket. Has a touch of feminine with edgy exterior. I'd like to see it in person. I think it looks a touch cheap in the photos. Oil slicks are NOT the most popular image right now... Bad timing!

    Bad timing by me? Or J.J. Winters? I don't think I had heard about the oil spill yet when I wrote this... which is awful BTW.
