Like many of you out there, I have a bit of a bag obsession – always in search of that elusive “perfect one”, and constantly switching bags depending on my outfit, the weather, my mood, etc.
I also seem to think that I live a life where all of my essentials can fit into a cute little handbag – well, thanks to you-know-who, that is no longer the case. I have stuff – and that stuff needs to be transferred every time I switch bags.
In addition, I have a penchant for big, shapeless totes – you know, the ones with either no pockets at all or a tiny one that doesn’t even hold a packet of tissues? Like this:
So, what to do about the “stuff”?
Bag in a bag.
What I needed was a bag that was big enough to hold all my “stuff” – tissues, pen, lipstick, notebook, band aids, nail file – and that I could simply throw into whatever purse I was carrying. Ideally it would be slim enough to not take up too much room, waterproof and durable (I am not gentle with my things). And, in a perfect world, it could pinch hit as a clutch bag too.
I discovered this faux wicker bag at a great store near my home. I plan to do a whole post on Pretty Funny Vintage
soon (here it is!), but couldn’t wait to share this with you, as I am loving this bag so much! It’s everything I asked for – roomy without being bulky, wipes clean, sturdy and well-made.
And an adorable clutch all on its own too.
The bag actually comes in 2 versions – the one shown here ($32) and a larger style ($42), which you can see on the store’s blog.
And guess what? The gals at Pretty Funny have been gracious enough to offer a 15% discount on either bag (not including shipping) if you mention donuts, dresses and dirt. Offer has expired.
Does it get any better than this? I didn’t think so…….
