The Bag Meme

I picked up this tag over at I thought that it would be fun..

After having to go to the dermatologist today for a full cancer check..always love those full body Dr appointment's . . I took my shower and shaved anything that needed shaving , got dressed and left for the Dr's office. I was back home and at my computer 1 hour later...It took me 15 minutes to get there and 15 minutes home, then I stopped at the cleaners... so the whole Dr appointment was less then an 1\2 hour.

Here are the rules for your purse.

1.Post a picture of whatever bag you are carrying as of late. No you can't go into your closet and pull out your favorite purse. We want to know what you carried today or the last time you left the house.
2.List how much it cost. And this is not to judge. this is for entertainment purposes only. So spill it. And if there is a story o go along with how you obtained it,we'd love to hear it.
3. Tag some chicks and link to this page so people know why the heck you're showing everyone your bag or just tag yourself!

So here's the bag that I have been carrying for the last month off and on. It's faux something...not sure what and definitely a fall /winter purse, because it's a little hairy! (sounds kind of creepy/ crawly)
I was up in Chicago visiting with my sister-in-laws and we were having lunch at the Cheesecake Factory. My first time there and I liked it very much ..defiantly not organic food!
We waited a very long time for a table so I was able to people watch a little. I saw a very attractive women with a purse like the one in the picture. She had on all black and I just thought the purse really stood out! When I went home to Dayton..I kept looking for a similar bag like the one I saw...I think it was a whole year before I saw a bag that I liked and it was on sale.

I think the purse was around $30.00... and I had a 20% coupon!
Too tired to do the math.

That was over ten years ago and I'm finally using it. For some reason I never thought to use it...seemed fancy compared to my usual black or brown purses. So I saw it on my shelf about two months ago and thought it's now or never... stop Goodwill.

I am not a one purse at a time person...I carry one for a week or two then I change it up. I don't like the purse to match the shoes, I like to mix it up ...

This is the optional decide if you want to display the contents or not! Sorry my stuff is pretty boring , I just threw it together before I left the house.

I usually have a lot more unnecessary stuff and a bigger purse. I usuall like to carry paper clips, sudoku puzzles, a pencil, glass case, Kleenex, breath mints,roll on perfume keys, gloves etc
I'm usually a big purse kind of girl!

I'll start with the bottom left and move around the top and then down the right side.

1.. My camera case that I try to carry with me always now just in case I see a great sky .

2. My receipt from the dermatologist office

3.My information on different skin conditions and what they look like, moles, skin cancers. etc

4.a pen,. next to it my checkbook

5.My huge comb...that sticks out of all my purses ...need a smaller one.

6.My cell phone

7.Lip liner and double sided lipstick...

8.And finally my glass nail file

9. ? Where is my wallet...better check the car.

I'm not tagging anyone If you want to spill out your purse in front of a lot of other people... just tag yourself!
That's it...that's all she wrote!


  1. I'm not game enough, but I would like to ask what is a glass nail file? that sounds dumb I mean is it really glass?

  2. Dear Meggie, someone wiser than I said, "Never let anyone see the bottom of your purse or the bottom of your mind" so I'm passing and just saying that I carry a vintage Etienne Aigner that everyone seems to admire and I like immensely.

  3. I am loving your bag. I have a bit of a black and white fetish I have to say. I also like a bit of animal print. I have tons of bags and use the same one all the time. How boring am I? And congrats for having your sun cancer check - oh the annoying part of being so fair skinned in a hot place! I slather sunblock on my exposed bits whether rain, hail or sunshine! Oh I like Kay's quote. I think I have broken that rule more than once. I did a post on my handbag contents somewhere or other. Must dig it out.

  4. That's a very styling bag. You know me... I only use my ratty travel backpack these days and my bag is FULL of...........
    Hmmmm....maybe I should take a picture of it...

  5. I love this post!!! I have to play, but I'm at work (don't tell anyone I'm blogging!!) so I'll have to do it when I get home tonight. I love, love, love my current purse and I was hesitant to get it. I'm so glad I did! This will be fun! Check me out tonight!

  6. I have to have one of the world's ugliest purses. Perhaps I should join in this meme? LOL
