Junior Drake: The Jacquelyn Bag
I was browsing through my favorite department store the other day when I came across this Junior Drake bag pictured above. I had seen Junior Drake bags before, but I guess I never really paid much attention to them. But since this bag sort of caught my eye, I decided to try it on and see how it looked. What did I think of this bag? Well, I can safely say that it isn’t bad at all. The bag hugs your body nicely and the braided straps are quite comfortable. Or perhaps I just like it because it reminds me of another bag I saw somewhere… I just can’t seem to place my finger on it though! Oh well, I’m sure it will come to me at some point.
Anyway, for those of you that are not familiar with Junior Drake, here is a little background info quoted from the Junior Drake website:
A woman of legendary proportions is the inspiration for Junior Drake. Patsy Brown was born into a family of dancers and film actors. As a young aspiring actress, she took the name of Junior Drake as her stage name. Patsy (Junior Drake) has a unique personal style and inspired thousands through her community work, business enterprises, and exquisite vision. She personified femininity and defined the term avant-grade.
The Brown family sought to immortalize not only her unique sense of style, but her humanitarian legacy. She mentored many women throughout her life, helping them to unlock feminine qualities that bolstered self-esteem and fostered confidence.
