Anyhow, so my dream side job would prolly be owning a boutique and letting someone else run it while I go treasure hunting! Either that or being some kind of stylist's buyer so I can just hunt and send real time pictures while they OK they buy. Then I'd get to spend someone else's money! Even better!
The thing is that most of the time I don't even want these things for myself. If I really want it, I think it's so "me" and I'll never find another one like it; then I buy it. Not buying it has cost me insomnia so I've learned my lessons.
Left: $450 Right: $250
This Fendi purse is the blandest shape, and I've seen one of our countryside Profs sporting a similar clutch but as you can see that doesn't change the price tag by much!
This Betsey Johnson was a winner! But I don't believe in sequins, I think they fall off and I hate sewing so sewing them back on like my mom used to do for me is out of the question. Missing sequins? Ew.
The Guess was $60, Lesportsac was $40 but the other is all watercolor and I could only carry it in an airport (maybe) or while camping, and I'm just not a Guess girl. I even tried it on in front of the mirror and...no. I thought about buying it so my sis could sell it in Finland but...no trip planned in the near future. And honestly Guess is often on the shelves so it's not like it was a steal. The $20 yellow purse I have at home, now THAT was a steal! XD
Something I was looking at for yobo but we agreed that white is not as good as the black one he had (someone stole it at the gym).
Finally this is a purse I'm considering buying...not for its brand or for it's style but just because I think it's cute. It comes in white and brown too! I have ordered a few similar purses from Hong Kong which are made from similar material (PU leather?) so I'll wait and see how those turn out.
I apologize for the poor quality of pictures, I actually left out a few purses because you couldn't really see them (most expensive one was $1499!) and I wonder if you even want to read about my finds? Though I must admit that I love taking those pictures with my cellphone so maybe I will aim at taking better pictures or using flash so that I can continue posting such posts. Next post will include clothes I've scouted out (less picture-heavy) and then finally I'll have a post with all the shoes I'm coveting!
