It's late here and the Scout Master's flight has been delayed because of bad weather in HOU. I've been running around like a complete crazy woman since 5am and I should really be in bed, but he's not home yet...so I'm not asleep yet. This is what I decided to do instead...CHANGE purses! (Apparently there's a theme to this day.)
I've been carrying around this very large, very delicious, purple Vera Wang bag for almost 18 months. I got it in February 2011 on MAJOR sale at Kohl's for $8.99. (that was 70% off of the marked down price which was 60% off the original!) I LOVE it because it has a million compartments and because it's big enough to carry everything I could ever want or need in a day. (Some days, that's a lot of stuff!) It's the perfect softness. It's the perfect weight. And it's the perfect neutral color that magically coordinates with everything I wear. (I bet you had no idea purple was a neutral??)
I love that it's shapelessness molds to whatever place I happen to set it...which is pretty much wherever it lands, or wherever is within two steps of where I am when I realize I still have it on my shoulder and decide I don't want it there anymore.
Here's what was I found when I dumped it out on my bed...
Let me break that down into more manageable pieces for you...
|a billion receipts, the grocery list I used last Friday, and a $10 Kohl's coupon I didn't even know I had!!|
|a million lip glosses because I have to be prepared for all occasions and all colors|
|miscellaneous toiletries and hair thingies (yes, that IS a full size lotion because the thing is, if you're going to carry a purse the size of Alaska, you might as well use the space you have, right?)|
|and this is totally a fluke because it's never actually IN my purse...it's usually in my hand!|
|And after getting rid of a few things and reorganizing a few others, here's my new purse for the fall. Do you love it? It has tons of little pockets and my favorite part...the inside is lined with cheetah print!! <3|
And now that the Scout Master is finally home, I can go to bed!
