______I always see lots of fashion bloggers with what I call their signature purse--a purse which they are wearing in many or most of their outfits, a purse which radiates with that blogger's inner flame (this is gettin' deep, guys). I have always felt a bit empty since I have no "signature purse" to call my own. Sure, I have some purses that I use to carry my things around, but never one which was fully versatile like I'd want it to be.
______I have been searching for a purse for quite some time now, and have been quite picky about it: I wanted one that was leather, had a detachable cross body strap, was cognac in color, and would be big enough to fit my camera without being too large of a bag. I don't want to give off that crazy bag lady vibe. No offense to any crazy bag ladies out there. Welp, while shopping with my mom and brother this past week, I stumbled across what I was pretty sure was my dream purse. I basically stood still and stared at it, refusing to leave it from my view until my mom decided to come over and look at it with me. I unzipped it, took out the paper tissue stuffing, put my own things in there, and walked around with it on my shoulder for a while. It felt so right. It felt so true, so honest. It was like the boyfriend I never had, or never will have.
______Love at first sight is real, you guys.
______It's going to be one of my birthday presents, so I won't be able to actually have until then (a month and a half to go!). But purse-dearest is there in my mind, and the perilous journey of finding it has at last come to a halt.
______Have you been searching for anything in particular lately? Whether that be some tangible thing, the promise of adventure, or a man who has the body of Chris Hemsworth and the class of Robert Downey Jr.?
