I am calling on you for help today… I need a new purse. Well, actually I don’t need one yet, but I will soon…. in the next month or two. This is purse I’ve been carrying for the last 7 months…
It’s been a good purse. I love the orange. I love the ruffles… but the time is drawing near for a replacement. I want something different, but I don’t know what. I’m considering a crossover because it seems extremely practical for walking across ASU’s campus every day but I don’t know… am I too late to jump on that bandwagon? Did I miss the crossover trend completely?
Here’s the thing… if you’ve been around the blog for a while you know I classify my style as granny chic - gold buttons, cardigans, pencil skirts, lace, pointy-toe shoes, subtle animal print - that kind of thing. I wear items that are in fashion today, but that I might also be able to wear in about 50 years. But when it comes to purses, I’m willing to branch out a bit. I often buy a bright colored purse or something a little bit trendy because I know that I will probably only carry the purse for year-ish and then be done with it.
So here’s where you come in… I need your best purse inspirations. What should I buy? I want your ideas… Please leave me a comment below with links to any purses you like. Store and brand do not matter; in the past I’ve had purses from H&M, Nordstrom, Urban Outfitters, Kohl’s, and Target. I would even be open to buying something from Etsy or from an online shop. It just has to be cute. The only rule is that it can’t cost more than $50. I am not a thousand dollar purse type of girl. $50 is my limit for something that might or might not get set on the floor of a public bathroom. I can’t wait to see what you come up with. I need a new purse to love, so please show me what YOU LOVE!
