How to Shop for Handbags

how to shop for handbags

I’ve been a shoe gal for years. Years and years and years. And then for some more years after those years. I never thought I’d give a hoot about handbags because I never had. Before I launched the blog, I hunted down and found my perfect everyday bag and I bought it and carried it diligently every day for the next five years. But then something shifted. I have absolutely no idea why, but I took an interest in handbaggery after ages of indifference and have been slowly accumulating a nice little collection for various occasions and uses.



Today is Husband Mike‘s birthday.

His favorite color is plaid.
His favorite month is fall.
His favorite number is 3,000.

He is kind and patient and curious and hilarious and supportive and amazing. He has taught me that marriage means working as a team, and that being a spouse means being a partner. He cooks, he lets me have our tiny one-car garage for my car, he talks to our cats, he never gets mad when I’m late. He helps sick, poor, and vulnerable people at his day job, then takes gorgeous photos in his spare time. He puts up with my moods, showers me with praise, and is my #2 fan. (He says he can’t hold a candle to my mom, which is probably true.)


Lovely Links: 5/27/11

It’s been a rough week, weather-wise. A tornado touched down mere blocks from my house over the weekend, and my neighborhood is still a shambles. (I’ve donated here.) And, of course, even more deadly storms ripped through Missouri and Alabama. Racialicious has a great list of ways to help.

I’m thrilled to have another post up at The Frisky! This time, I wrote about dressing vs. dieting, a topic that is close to my heart.
