Miranda Kerr's Weekender Bag

I was flipping through this month's issue of GQ. After spending an hour or so ogling Victoria's Secret model Miranda Kerr, I eventually noticed the various articles.

I even noticed the articles that didn't involve Miranda Kerr. But I digress.

Anyway, once I was done reading the various articles, I eventually noticed the advertisements. In particular, I noticed all of the ads for cologne. There were a lot of ads for cologne, which isn't all that surprising. This was GQ, of course.

The thing that surprised me was how may of them offered a free weekend bag as a gift when purchasing the advertised cologne. Curve. Calvin Klein. Zegna Colonia. If they offered a gift with purchase, it was always a weekend bag.

I can't help but feel that this routine of offering a gift with purchase has become rather played out. There are too many people thinking the same thing, over and over again.

And fashion should never be that boring or predictable.
