the maggie, that I thought was perfect, but after trying it on I found that the leather straps slip right off my shoulder. It's a good thing too, because the retail price on that purse was way more than I'd like to pay.but I've had it a year and a half and I want something with more room and more pockets. I want one that opens at the top with a covered magnet closure (no flap like my current one and no zipper) and 1-2 dividers in the main compartment so that I have nice ways to keep my coupons and sunglasses separate from other contents. My friend recently got a new coach bag,
I know what you're thinking - what, Coach purse? I thought this girl was thrifty with her coupons and trying to save money by paying with cash. But a girl's gotta have a good purse! We all have our weaknesses, right? It's a balancing game - I save with coupons, bargain shopping, buying second hand and then every couple of years, I splurge and buy a good purse. If it's any consolation, this last purse was bought at the MCX at the recruit depot in San Diego. If you're not familiar, an MCX is a Marine Corps Exchange (my husband is active duty) and they sell name brand items at a lower price plus there is no tax....so it was a little bit of a bargain ;-).
Cole Haan outlet. It was brown suede and slouchy and had leather ropey handles, but I was afraid that one of the straps would keep falling off my shoulder and it didn't have any of the dividers inside that I was looking for. It was on sale for 60% off, but I was afraid I wanted it for all the wrong reasons. I'm having buyers remorse and wishing I would have bought it. Not sure if I'll find "the" purse at that price.
I've looked online and I'm burnt out. I went to a few local stores like Marshalls and Dillards, but can't find what I'm looking for in a brand that I like. Plus, I have shoppers guilt when making such a purchase this big. It's humbled me enough to be happy with what I have for a little while longer.
Hopefully, I'll get a new purse before summer :-P.
