i have a problem. i really do. today i sort of accidentally bought the most expensive purse that i have ever bought. all of the purses i have are pretty cheap. you know, target kind or whatever. i love target. don't get me wrong. but today i felt like a big girl and actually spent too much money on a purse. to be honest i am not quite sure what i was thinking. i had one of those days. i was stressed. i went to the mall on my lunch break. i had been wanting a new purse for a while because my last one permanently smells like campfire smoke. and i looked, and didn't find anything. and i ended up buying some hair product that i probably spent way too much on. i am a sucker when people say "you need this girl! trust me!" okay. sold. that is not a good trait. but oh well.
i was walking out of nordstrom. somewhat sad. then i saw the sale rack. and this purse. and i couldn't stop staring at it. and it was way more than i ever wanted it to be. i have been wanting this color of a purse for a long time. one that didn't look too shiny and plastic. and the room got silent, and the world started spinning. and i knew this was the purse for me. sean says that is what happened when he realized he loved me. you can read his story about that here. anyway, i looked at the discounted price. and it was still a lot. and then the sales lady came over and said "can i help you?" and i said "yes. can you take this purse away from me before i buy it because if you don't it will be the most expensive purse that i have ever bought." and she said "oh i just love that purse." and then this other random lady was like "ohhhh... you can never spend too much on a purse that you love. when you find the right one. you just know."
i guess i have never found the right one. until now. and just like that i was sold. so then i bought it and cried a little and then called sean and told him not to kill me. but that i had to have it because it was the cutest thing ever and the inside was so adorable and it had all these cool pockets and it was totally on sale and i got such a good deal on it and i totally made it sound like the purse was like a million dollars so when he guessed a price and i said it was less... he was happy. so that is they key folks. it worked. and he was relieved that it was a million dollars. and there you have it. my newest purchase that i promise you i probably shouldn't have bought but don't even care. it's like when i bought mosey. totally impulsive. but one of the best decisions that i ever made. and of course i didn't ask sean before i bought it. but he loves it, and it's our purse. because he always makes me hold his stuff. so really its like double the bang for the buck. does that phrase make sense? oh well. i did it. and i will probably never buy another purse for a million years. good thing mustard yellow never goes out of style...oh...wait...
it is my baby. because it was practically the same price as a baby. and for the record? i do not make a lot of money. i am just crazy. oh well. the purse is a brand called "the sak". never heard of it. but i love it. and i have never ever bought anything at nordstrom except tights and chais and cookies.. i guess there is a first time for everything right? oh and in honor of my new purse i had to change the colors on the blog. it just seemed appropriate. please make me feel better and tell me that i am not the only one who has done something like this??? oh dear, why am i blogging about a purse?
