I first heard about Thursday Friday bags from my friend Deirdre (of Candy Shop Vintage) in Charleston. They had just arrived at a King Street boutique and she was scrambling to get her hands on one since they were rumored to be selling out everywhere.

If you’ve always wanted to carry a Balenciaga or Chanel bag, now you can (well, kinda!) Thursday Friday’s signature “Together Bags” are carryall canvas totes screenprinted with a highly coveted Chanel, Balenciaga or Birkin bag. Noted in the New York Times as “this season’s anti-status symbol,” these tongue-in-cheek designer bags have recently arrived in Wilmington.

Carried exclusively at Lumina Station’s newest boutique Lilies and Lace, owner Stella Sardone says, “They are perfect for travel on the plane or on the beach. They are super versatile so you can wear it as a purse to work or as a weekend tote.”

At $79, this is one designer bag that won’t break the bank. Now if only we would have thought of it, righhhhhht?
