Tod's D Bag is the ultimate royal bag

I talk a lot about bags. If you read my personal blog, it used to be about shoes. But since becoming a mommy, I seem to have become obsessed with bags. And I will keep writing about bags here from now on. But there is one bag I really, really, really, really, really want. It's the Tod's D Bag.

The Tod's D Bag was named for Diana, Princess of Wales, in 1997. That's the year she died. I remember that it was a Sunday when she died, and I watched her funeral from my bed. Yes, I was so upset I got sick.

Since then, I'd been wanting things associated with her. I bought myself a sapphire ring in 2009 and when I found out last year that Tod's re-issued the D Bag, I've been saving up for it. I plan for it to be my 35th birthday gift to myself!

Kate Middleton, or rather, Catherine, the new Duchess of Cambridge, has the same idea except that she's already lucky enough to have both the ring and the bag!

Diana, Catherine, D Bag. Obviously, it's the bag royalty favors! But Hollywood's A-listers have also fallen in love with it. Look at these beauties toted by the stars:
Leighton Meester
Nicole Kidman
Jennifer Garner
Jessica Alba
Diane Kruger
It's also the bag that stylish beautiful people love. I like to think that's me! I just saw the new S/S '11 campaign.

Set in Rome and starring gorgeous young things, the photo captures a moment that I want for myself and Vince and Vito--a carefree day spent eating good food and laughing under the warm sun. And of course, we'll be well dressed like the Italians. The Italians are always perfectly groomed. Understated elegance, easy style. They never look like they try too hard. They look like they lounge in bed looking perfect all the time!

P.S. I'm also green with envy when I found out that The Bag Hag got her very own personalized Tod's D Bag, a gift from Tod's! Tod's, I want to go to your events, too! You don't have to give me a bag since I'm already saving up for one. Really!

Tod's is exclusively distributed by Stores Specialists, Inc. and are available at Greenbelt 4 and Shangri-la Plaza.

I don't think that's a D Bag Jessica Alba is carrying, though.
