What The World Needs: The Wine Purse

I love the Internets. Why? Because they bring me things like this:

The above image was attached to a random Tweet from someone I've never heard of that I managed to snatch out of the ether when I saw the sentence "I'm totally getting me one of these here wine purses." To which I could only say, "AMEN!"

What a concept! Sure, they could make the spout tuck conveniently away somewhere, and they've totally missed out on the buckle trend that's hot right now, but this is definitely a marvel of fashion and function nonetheless. And if it has some nice little inner pockets for those small frozen cold packs (plus enough room for a phone, a compact, a wallet, and a tube of lipstick) I call it genius.

I wonder if it comes in suede?
