My New Purse

I am very excited. My journey for the perfect purse has ended.

You see, I have never been a purse lover. I mean, I like them and all, but I'm more of a utilitarian kind of person, so my average life of a purse is probably about two years. Yes, I have carried the same purse for two years. And they haven't always been cute. It's not that I mind cute purses, but I'm super cheap, so I haven't been able to bring myself to shell out the cash.

When I started doing pageants, I actually didn't carry a purse. I had my wallet key chain thing that all college students have, my cell phone, and some lip gloss. My pageant people probably thought I was the biggest weirdo in the world.

But, recently, I decided I wanted a purse. One that wasn't a hand me down (which probably all but two of my past purses have been), and one that I really liked.

I started looking a couple months ago. I really liked the Fossil purses, but they were expensive, and I didn't want to pay up until I found one I loved. I looked at the Fossil store, multiple malls, etc., etc. And I was still empty handed.

But then, on this trip to Branson, I went into the Fossil store. My heart was brimming with hope. I did not want to get too excited for fear of a big let-down. But the outlet did not let me down. Are you ready to see this beauty?

Here's a side view:

Cute, huh? I LOVE it. Here's a close up:

And here's the back:

Well, what do you think?

I'm pretty ecstatic. I do realize I should have a dressier purse, too, but I just LOVE this one. Yay! (-:

Happy Weekend!



  1. I love it!! Just stopping by to thank you for visiting me on my SITS day and leaving me some blog love! Everyone was so sweet and I really enjoyed the day!


  2. I love it, girl! Great choice :)

    Now, the next thing you need to get from Fossil are their short scarves with the big button. They rule!

  3. Love it! The colors are so calming and pretty! It looks like a great and functional purse along with being super cute!

  4. Very cute! All the colors means it will match with almost anything. :) Great buy!

  5. I love the colors! They are very spring like!

    Swing by my blog... I have an award for you! :-)

  6. that is SOOO cute! perfect for spring. i'm like you- i keep a purse until it falls apart. i just fell in love with one that costs $200, which is about $150 more than i would usually spend, so i'm deciding whether or not it's worth it!

  7. That is a great purse. I used to carry purses all the time and I had quite the collection, but I downgraded to a tiny wallet attached to my keys. I hope I never have to carry a purse again...though I know I will one day.

  8. Vey cute! I've never been one to buy a purse like that. You know the kind that goes from your shoulder across. But it is super cute!

  9. Adda girl Kathryn. Love love love it.


  10. I just got done reading ALL of your posts since you started your blog. The name of your blog caught my eye from somewhere but I can't remember where (I think you linked up with a McLinky somewhere???). Anyway.... My hubby and I are Dave Ramsey followers too that's why the name of your blog caught my eye. He's the nerd, I'm the free spirit. :) I've really enjoyed reading your story thus I'm now a follower. :) Oh and I love the purse!!! I too carry purses for a year, then get a new one. It's my thing...but my purse of choice is Vera Bradley. LOVE her...and I usually don't have to buy it (I ask for them for Christmas!). Enjoy your new purse!

  11. Love it. Fossil purses are adorable, and at outlet prices, they're even better.

  12. PRETTY!

    I just LOVE your way of thinking. You are a woman after my own heart! I have never, ever understood people who have a fascination with purses and shoes. I just don't get it. What I REALLY don't understand is paying tons and tons of money for them! There are just so many other things I'd rather have!

    I'm loving reading all your questions and answers. {{DAVE RAMSEY ROCKS!}}

    Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you're having a great weekend! See ya again soon.

  13. What a cute purse! Congrats on your new purchase. :)

  14. Love your new purse.

  15. What a great find. I have a Fossil one similar to it that my mom-in-law gave me for Chirstmas.
