Tote couture SHE NEEDED, SO SHE MADE IT HERSELF
SARAH HARAN COULDN’T FIND THE HANDBAG
THERE’S a film you might remember from the 1990s called One Fine Day. It’s a comedy romance starring George Clooney and Michelle Pfeiffer as two strangers whose lives intersect on a stressful day when they’re trying to get their children to school.
At first, they can’t stand each other; by the end they fall in love – it’s a pretty standard rom-com format.
But for some women who saw the movie, it’s not the plot that sticks in their mind but
something else entirely: Pfeiffer’s handbag.
The big black bag seems to contain everything. In one scene, Pfeiffer’s character suddenly remembers that her children are supposed to be going to a fancy-dress party. But she hasn’t organised any costumes.
No problem. She rummages around in the bag and pulls out what she needs to make some outfits. It’s the same with anything else that might come her way: whatever the problem, there’ll be something in the bag to fix it.
