Monday Must-Haves/Do

I just discovered the coolest handmade handbag’s.

I’ve never owned a quality handbag, but I’m thinking I need to start saving my money for this one.

I love that every purse made by the company is totally unique……..if I’m going to spend good money on a handbag, I don’t want to see a million other people with the same purse.

I just need to be assured that if I DO spend the money on a good bag it’s not going to become an obsession like my jeans.

Reasurrances welcomed. 🙂

    Haha.. obsessed with your jeans??? if they cost a fortune i would be too.. so don't worry if you like this bag and you're gonna treasure it because it was expensive rather than just being obsessed with how it works out with everything in your wardrobe, you're gonna be good.. so being obsessed is good in this case scenario:)
    I'm heading over to Tip Junkie see what this fuss is all about:)
    Happy Monday Angie!

    Can not help w/the bag thing b/c you know how some chicks are addicted to shoes (or, jeans)? That's me with bags. I LOVE them. You know what I got for my birthday (per my request and direction)? 2 bags. 2 very beautiful, expertly crafted Kenneth Cole bags. 1 of them was wine. What do I even wear that would go with a wine colored bag? Nothing, really, but I love it anyway. I love looking at it, and touching it, and pretending I'm going to carry it w/a certain outfit that I don't own yet, and showing it to my friends and my mom and my neighbor when she drops by to harass me about the planter out front. I know, I'm ill and I have no intention of seeking help:) So, I say, buy it. But, you may want to seek others' opinions first b/c I am not to be trusted when it comes to bags.

  3. I think there are worst things than a good handbag obcession:-)

  4. That is one cool handbag! I love it. And, believe me, once you start buying nice handbags…it will become an obsession. I can't carry Walmart bags anymore….

    Running the household and shepperding five kids and an oversized grown kid earns you some "self points"!! Buy you a purse girl and strut with it. Hoping you have some more glorious sunshine to hoard!! Cheers

    I like the hand bag you posted here… hope that isn't the one you are saving your money for. LOL

    Just kidding…

    I do like it, but like everyone else. In SAVING mode.

  9. So pretty, thanks for sharing 🙂

  10. T Rex Mom says

    I'm a big fan or homemade/handmade. Mostly because I've never been able to afford really trendy, expensive things so my mom would make something unique with what we had and no one else would have it! Then I was hip and trendy all by myself!

    You'll have to post a photo of the bag you do decide to get!

  11. Grand Pooba says

    Love em! Especially cuz their made in Utah!

  12. Veggie Mom says

    The economy has cut into my "Bag Budget," but I'll keep this in mind for when things are looking up!

  13. I don't know if I could ever get addicted to jeans – I'm one of those that they fit so well in the store and then you get them home and you hate them a week later. Your muffin top is falling all over or your thighs look thunderous. You know. 🙂

    But that bag does look awfully cute…

  14. sassy stephanie says

    Yum. I'm an handbag junkie AND a designer jean junkie. Lethal.

  15. Gorgeous bags! I just got my first designer handbag for my birthday. I adore it! I don't feel like I want to go buy a bunch more but I am really loving the one my hubby bought me:)

  16. Liz (Loving Mom 2 Boys) says

    That is definitely a fun and funky bag!! Perfect to go with a lovely pair of jeans I think!!

  17. Molly Doe says

    Ooh pretty! I say even it does become an obsession, it's okay, because it's purty!

  18. I would not be able to reassure you… I am addicted to purses! Addicted, I tell ya!

  19. I can't reassure you. I bought my first coach purse in January and now I own three!

  20. I do not need another addiction, Angie. Shoes and bags are my weakness. In fact, I was once going to post a picture of my closet…and all my purses stacked to the wall. But I figured I'd get called a spoiled glutton, and I just can't deal with angry/rude comments right now.


    Lemme know if you get one of these bags…I wanna see it. In person. Ahem.

  21. Life with Kaishon says

    I have always thought handmade purses were very cool : ).

    I will go check out the 50 prizes thing. It sounds exciting.
