    It's not often that our deepest shopping desires have a positive effect on our consciences. In fact, our credit-card swipes have brought our moral barometers from clear to guilty more times than we can count.

    So, you can imagine our euphoric ecstasy delight when R29's own assistant editor, Gina Marinelli, named Angela & Roi handbags as her editor obsession.
