Another Sold Out Morning Drool!

This Alexander Wang-ish canvas bag is for hipsters only. At $71, the Baggu Tie-Dye Canvas Backpack is clearly more affordable than Wang. I was excited to share this with you guys but it is unfortunately sold out on the American Rag Cie website.

I would rock this with acid washed boyfriend jeans, pumps, a white tee and a distressed denim vest.

*FYI American Rag Cie can notify you when this becomes available again.
