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?
