I got it – at last!

what? you wonder?

Well as some will know for the past year or so I have been in search of the perfect handbag. Now I so was not a handbag person until I had Owen and conceded that I no longer had enough hands for everything I wanted to have with me! And the most I’ve ever spent on a handbag before yesterday was about $30. Also I don’t swap handbags to match my outfit as a rule I have one that does me daily no matter what I am wearing (I can almost see some people cringing lol).

So when I saw what I thought was the perfect handbag at the market a few weeks ago for a whopping $110 (marked down from $137) I didn’t bring it home. It was too much (besides I didn’t have that much easily accessible that day)!

Now about 3 weeks later I could not get the thought of the perfect handbag out of my head so I took the kids back to the market to see if it was still there. It was, and in fact there were two and the other one was even that bit nicer. And they had been marked down again to $99 – I suck at the haggle – tried but got nowhere…so I did it…I spent $99 on a handbag! (but you see I worked it out I use it EVERY day and it will last at LEAST a year (he said 10) so that is like 27c a day. Can I justify 27c a day on a handbag? YES…especially if it is PURPLE LEATHER and has a nice long strap to go over neck and shoulders (can’t stand the handbag falling off the shoulder thing) and need both hands free with 3 boys!

so I guess now you want to see? even goes with my (pre-existing) purse now! woohoo!

    Yeyyyyyyyyyy – it is very you! You will surely get more than one year out of it and so that makes it even cheaper!! Consider it an early birthday present to yourself!

    Jude, How cute is this, or should I say funky and oh so you.
    Now how do I work out and justify what I spent on my bag…..think it may have to last me for the next 100 years at 27c a day.
    Enjoy your hands free purple freedom Linda
