I got a new purse. It falls under the category, It Caught My Eye, and I simply must show it to you. I can’t help myself. I’m like a two-year-old with this new purse. I don’t know whether it’s channeling my inner Injun, hippie or motorcycle mama. Truth be told, though, I have never wanted to stand anywhere near a motorcycle.
With time to kill, I wandered into Stein Mart figuring I would look at their gift section which is always a feast for the eyes. I cut through the handbag section and there on the bottom shelf, right above the floor, was this beauty. My arms immediately reached out for it. It was a bit much for my budget so I just wore it around the store, swinging it as I walked, so that I could watch the fringe swish. Friends of mine found out about the purse and purchased it for me. Wasn’t that spectacular?
It’s made by Imoshion. I don’t know whether it is real or fake leather but I really don’t care. It has 21″ fringe hanging down both sides and 12″ fringe hanging from the bottom. This “fringe thing” started with a tassel on my last purse.
In order to use it, I had to get rid of my checkbook, calculator and all manner of kitchen sink goodies women feel the need to cart around with them. I even got a new lighter weight wallet trying to eliminate that over-stuffed look but I did not particularly succeed. Sigh.
