Allee Willis’ Kitsch O’ The Day – Chinese Take-out Food Purse

chinese-food-purse_4690

As someone who loves leftovers, especially if they’re Chinese, and especially as someone who spells cooking ‘d-e-l-i-v-e-r-y’, how could I not be instantly attracted to this purse?! Though I can’t say that I haven’t actually used the real deal iconic food box as a purse before.  In my coming-up-as-a-songwriter days I resorted to using a cardboard one as a fashion accessory when my regular purse got too tattered and I really needed something with personality as a sub. There’s no question this plastic coated zippered version is more practical though. It’s always nice to pull out money that doesn’t smell like Moo Goo Gai Pan.

    I LOVE THIS. I remember seeing these around. I always thought: whatta concept! I grew up in Northridge when there was a Chinese take-out hole in the wall and Morigi’s Pizza. Near CSUN, now lined with every fast food restaurant imaginable. Anyway, my childhood treat was a table full of several cartons like this purse. Chow mein, noodles, rice, some other things. What a fab purse!
