Waxing poetic about crumbs in my purse



Top and skirt were thrifted

So, here's something you've already seen (this outfit). . . and something you've never seen.  Have I ever posed with my purse?  I don't think so.  And here's why.  ...Just, um, look at the purse.

Did you see it?  Yeah, it's a total mom bag.  I mean, it's neutral (re: goes with everything) and cute in a utilitarian kind of way.  But, it's about 8 years old and slightly misshapen and let's not even get started on my crumb collection at the bottom of it.

This bag can hold my wallet, a cosmetic bag (that is entirely too full of lip products), a date planner, a double-pouch pouch that holds all types of important paper (re: coupons), my keys, my cell phone, and I even have room for a bottle of water or five.  Sometimes I can lay an umbrella across the top of all that and still zip it.  Sometimes I can throw in a diaper and some wipes, so it pretty much doubles as a diaper bag.  Of course, that's only when we're not carrying cloth diapers with us.  Let's not get crazy, right?!

I'm letting this useful little big purse take a break.  For now, it will rest in my closet, where it will be stuffed full of smaller purses and pouches so it can possibly regain its shape.  And maybe 8 years from now, I'll eventually get around to taking an outfit picture with the next purse I use.  Maybe.

Tell me, tell me!  Do you have a purse that's been used and abused but you just can't get rid of it because it's generally awesome?

Today, I'm linking up with The Pleated Poppy and Because Shanna Said So.
