This Week I Thrifted
What? Leather, two-tone shoulder bag.
How much? $12.99
Why? I've been to the thrift store 3 times in the last 2+ months. That is quite reserved for me. I've been making an honest effort since just before I wrote my shopaholics post to curb the shopping (sidenote: I should write an update post on that, eh?). However, each of the 3 times that I have been in the thrift store, I have been very successful. This success leads me to have major discussions with myself as I debate whether I 'need' all the things I find. The answer is always yes. Yes, I need that olive jumpsuit because it is $5 and awesome. Yes, I need that giant gold over coat thingy (technical terms are failing me) because it is shiny and fabulous. My ability to say no at the mall has increased manifold since that post, but obviously, I am still weak in the thrift store.
All that to say that I bought this leather purse at the thrift store and I am quite pleased with the find. Some of my day-to-day purses are getting a little ratty and this one will fit nicely into the daily rotation. It's big enough to fit my rather bulky wallet, plus a handful of necessary lipgloss and snacks and keys and... you know, other purse junk. It's the kind of heavy leather that will only look better with age. And best of all, because of the two-tone, it will go with both black or brown leather boots! The options are blowing my mind... I need to sit down.
