Hello all and thanks to everyone who participated in this week's Fun Monday! My Fun Monday assignment is to post a photo of your purse and/or wallet and describe the contents. Since this is a repeat Fun Monday assignment for some of you, I hope you don't mind sharing again. Perhaps the original assignment was so long ago, that you have since changed your purse. If you are anything like me, I switch purses with every season!
I am so looking forward to seeing everyone's purses, pocketbooks, wallets, hand bags, satchels, totes, etc. Did you know that the things you carry can provide a window into your soul? A purse and a purse's contents can certainly reveal alot about one's personality. Are you organized and always ready for the unexpected, or are you a disorganized free spirit? Take a look at all of the Fun Monday participants and see what you think. (scroll down for the links).
Since the start of the summer season, I have been carrying this Vera Bradley bag and matching wallet in the Peacock pattern:
As I said before, I like to switch purses with every season. I do not always carry a "Vera" bag, but lately I have had much luck with ordering her bags online and getting very good deals. I like the look and feel of this summery bag, even though it hardly ever matches what I wear! This may bother some people. In fact, I actually had a MAN comment on my non-matching status. I immediately responded, "I didn't know you were the fashion police!" And then, I promptly whacked him up side the head with my very durable fabric Peacock patterned Vera Bradley bag!
A good purse to me must have many slip pockets and at least one zip pouch inside. I like to keep my purse organized. Organized purse = organized life. I try to keep it simple and carry only the necessities such as, pill box, Kleenex, nail file, lip gloss, compact, gum, mints, hand lotion, hand sanitizer, eye drops, pen, reading glasses, wallet, cell phone, receipts, coupons and that's about it. Oh wait, there is one more necessity a girl may need just in case - a tampon!
Thanks for playing and many thanks to Grace for volunteering for next week's Fun Monday (7/6/09)! Pop on over there later this week to see what her assignment will be and to sign up!
