To lighten things up a bit here:
I am pretty picky when it comes to handbags. Not too big, not too small. Just right (for me at least). I also am not a fan of status symbol handbags. I do not have a desire to let the world know that I have a Coach purse. I just want to have something cute and comfortable. Oh, and not cheaply made either.
I have noticed that I’ve been drawn to Fossil and Relic handbag styles lately. Well, I have been for a while now. Luckily we have two Fossil outlets nearby, so I don’t have to pay Fossil prices for my bags. And the last Relic I got was at JC Penney on sale. The last two or three Fossil/Relic bags I have purchased are canvas and colorful, and I think, cute. But sometimes i think it is good to break out of a rut…
While at an outlet this week, I was draw to two canvas bags, but made myself walk over to the leather side. I spotted one that was my style, but too big. Then I saw this one, its younger sister:
Cute, the right size, comfortable and leather (and on sale). Got it.
I also went into a store where I didn’t find any tops or skirts I liked (what I was searching for), but did find this necklace that called my name. The salesperson actually talked me out of buying it because she thought I should wait for a sale. Later that day I went to another mall and got it. On sale. By finding a top there that I did like and cashing in on the buy one, get one half off sale.

This shopping trip brought to you by me rewarding myself for doing well on my test (the one in school, not the medical test).
