Since we're moving in a couple of weeks (just across town) we decided to participate in a neighborhood yard sale. I went through my closet. I found that I have 32 purses. How many did I get rid of? Two. And a wallet.
Let's talk about some of my faves. These are my favorite big purses. All from my mother-in-law.
This hobo is from Kathy Van Zeeland and I. love. it. I love the color. I love pearls. I love the charms. I love how it appears small but fits sooooo much. I love the compartments for organizing. I love how the front and back magnetic snaps make my phone readily accessible. I love how it goes with almost everything.
This is also a Kathy and I love it for the same reasons.
Also a Kathy. Love it for the same reasons AND because it has a shoulder strap.
This is not a Kathy, but still from MIL. I love it because it's so summery. And huge. And I have matching heels.
This one is fun because it's red, soft, big, and I love the heart stitching. I also have matching flats for this one.
And now, on to the clutches.
Isn't this the cutest thing you've ever seen? It's tiny, but hand-beaded. It also reminds me of my grandma.
I LOVE this one. I love the color. And it shimmies.
This one is a recent purchase. I take it to work a lot. Just enough room for a cell phone, my cards, and some lip gloss.
This fancy pants one is from Target. Matching shoes too. Very holidayish.
This one is a tweed that is very work appropriate. You can't tell very well in the photo, but it has a little flower embellishment in the corner.
This is also one I take to work a lot. Subtle glam.
This one I got from Grams from DownEast for my birthday. It has a chain shoulder strap too, but I love the handle detailing. I love this one for its over-the-top girlishness. I may or may not have a similar white one too...
This one I got for prom with Colby. It has a very vintage feel to it. I always think Titanic; I don't know why.
This little Jackie O. number is from JeriLynn, just because she's fab. Just like this purse. I heart wrist straps, and I HEART turquoise.
This one my daddy picked out for me in Tahiti. Very summery.
And this one, I am so over. But, I was carrying it the first time I met Spencer and he says he'll never forget it. So, it stays.
