OK...so maybe that is a little bit over the top. The truth is, I spent SO many years carrying around a Land's End backpack/diaper bag that I have really enjoyed the opportunity to buy some cute and fun bags over the past year or two.
Here are the rules (which normally I boycott, but they seem a little necessary this time):
A. Post a picture of whatever bag you are (using) today - not last weekend when you and your hubby went out to that fabulous restaurant. No cheating!!! AND it's contents!! EVERYTHING! Yes, even THAT!
B. Tell us how much it cost. This is a no-judgment zone -- there will be no ridiculing or eye rolling here. And, if there is a story to go along with how you obtained it, I'd love to hear it.
C. Now tag some fellow bloggers and link back to this post so people know why you are posting pictures of your bag. (it is OK to break this rule...I know I am;)
OK, exhibit A:

I bought the dick and Jane bag from this chick. I can't remember what I paid for it. Maybe $40-ish, including shipping??? I really didn't care what it cost, I just had to have it. Wanna know what the biggest selling point of this bag was for me??? Two little words; Oh, Dick. When I carry this bag, it is like a little inside joke with myself:)
The other bag is a Fossil purse. It is the only purse I have ever bought from the BX. I think I paid $50-60 for it. I picked this bag up right before I took my trip to Poland in August because I needed a bag that has lots of pockets and that I could carry across my chest. It is hard to find purses that I can carry that way because I am tall and have ginormous boobs. Very annoying. But this purse fits and is actually my favorite every-day bag.
I am not specifically tagging anyone, but if you decide to do this leave me a comment to let me know! I am very nosy and love to see what everyone carries around in their purses:)
