think you know me then you know how I feel about handbags.
You know that I am obsessed with
smelling them and holding them close and rubbing them all over my naked body owning them.
You know that if I were John Mayer then handbags (never to be mistaken as pocketbooks or purses because those are what my grandmother carries) would be Jessica Simpson.
They are like cocaine for me people (not that I do now or ever have done cocaine, or crack, or smack, or crank, or gonja, or any other illegal substance of any sort; please recall that I am dumb, not stupid).
Some of you love shoes.
Or little figurines.
But, me, I love handbags. Handbagshandbagshandbagshandbags (spins in circle and throws them into air being careful to dodge the large, leather, heavy-bottomed ones to prevvent injury and possible loss of consiousness).
So, the fact that I discovered the most awesome Etsy seller EVER who hand makes these adorable, gorgeous, couture-inspired clutch bags should come as no surprise.
And, let me tell you people, they are Ca-UTE!
All trendy, and fashionable, and unique and stuff!
Do you even know anyone else with a bag this spectacular?
Okay, maybe you do, but still it’s not THIS spectacular bag.
Now, if you are anything like me you have set a standard in the awesome handbag department that your friends and frenimies alike expect you to live up to.
You are that chick whose bag gets noticed everywhere you go.
You can’t stop at the store or run into the gas station without the clerks and the other shoppers complimenting your bag and asking you where you purchased it (which you lie about right? Please tell me you don’t give up the secrets to ametures just because they ask nicely and attempt to bribe you with a compliment. You have to be stronger than that!).
Point is, people like us can’t just show up to playgroup/PTA/your co-op day with any old Target bag (although, I’ll admit, they do have some really cute ones for this summer, right?!).
No Old Navy number for us ladies.
We need something special.
Because people are looking to us to see what’s what on the handbag front.
We are awesome handbag role models; trendsetters, pioneers!
And, as we all know, with great power comes great responsibility.
So, lucky for you, I’m giving this one away!
