I'm not one to buy brand names…. but this amazing Coach purse was a gift from my wonderful boyfriend when we were in Palm Springs shopping at Cabazon. Its probably my favourite purse to date.  There is nothing better than a classic, functional, great black purse. Coach you did it and thank you for not putting "C"s all over it!

Blue slik lining. Its gorge.

The bulk of my purse and its contents: Lets face it… If you are an iPhone user, you need your cord at all times because the darn thing doesn't hold a charge. Business cards are a must at all times… same with bobby pins. I always carry a little Olay moisturizer since we live in such a dry climate. Eos lip stuff…check!  Floss…check!  Wallet… check! Little mysterious case filled with feminine stuff… check!  Gum… Check!

Remember when you never used Hand Sani? Well now you can buy mini ones for your purse and ones with sparkles. Perfect addition.

I have to say… digging through my purse was super fun. I found my MAC bronzer I was looking for. lol

The slippery iPhone always finds it way to the bottom of the purse.

I have chalk in my purse? Yes… and it made a mess. Looks like in my purse you'll always find a crumpled up receipt or parking pass or a random flosser…eeeu!

When my Nana passed away 12 years ago (my mom's mother)… My mom ended up keeping her blue purse exactly the way it was the day she died and kept it tucked away in the closet. We decided to look in her purse not long ago and honestly it was one of those moments where you thought…should we be doing this? … Should be be looking through her purse?  lol God rest her soul…  we did look in her purse and felt instantly connected again.  Her slippers tucked in the side, an adorable welsh change purse filled with dated coins, her blue wallet with the old style twenties and a two dollar bill….and a button waiting to be sewed on.

The fact is…a ladies purse is her lifeline… and her little shadow that she never leaves home without.  I actually think  one of the best things about being a women is the ability to carry all the things you need in a stylish manner. I love holding a purse, I love how your purse reflects you as a person. Clearly I'm a girly girl that loves lipstick and cameras.

So enjoy your purse(s) ladies. Buy the one that gives you the most satisfaction in holding your precious things.  Give yourself a little purse dump once and awhile. You might surprise yourself. :-)
