I don't know about the rest of the country, but here in Louisiana (the greater New Orleans area), this purse (or styles similar) are EVERYWHERE! Now when Dooney and Burke first came out with this I thought it was cute, not me but still cute. I am all for trends but this has gone too far! I feel like I am on a freaking safari at the the store. How many giraffes can I spot? I loathe this purse. I want to call up the people at D&B and give them an ear full. Thanks to you D&B I now hate giraffes!
