Several months ago, one of my best friends who now lives in Pittsburgh texted me to tell me that she found a red purse in her grandma's closet that she was going to give to me. I knew I loved it already--I mean, what is there not to love about 'red' and 'purse'?
I finally got to see this friend last weekend for her engagement party (CONGRATS COURT!) and she was finally able to pass the bag on to me! Naturally, I went and Googled it, because I love to know the story and value behind bags I thrift (or snag from random friend's family members). This is a Daisy Fuentes purse that you can find at your friendly neighborhood Kohls. I love the bright color not to mention this is probably the roomiest bag I own! It might look on the smaller side, but I felt like Mary Poppins when I was able to fit my hairbrush, a book, my wallet/keys/phone, and a can of soup for lunch. Stuff just, like, disappears inside this thing.
You may be thinking "Oh, there's that orange bauble-y necklace--again. Does she wear any other accessory?" Because I wear this necklace every day (or so it seems) I was a little hesistant to pair the orange accessory with a red bag, a red striped shirt, and newly-dyed reddish hair. And red nails.
Somehow, it all worked and it was a perfect outfit for a cooler-than-usual August day where my bangs didn't stick to my forehead.
The shirt is an American Eagle top that I got from a store in Everett, PA called Addictive Apparel, a discount name-brand clothing store I discovered while I lived in Bedford for the summer. The skirt came from a thrifting adventure at Unique several months back and is one of my workplace wardrobe staples, mostly because I no longer fit into the skirts I bought at the peak of my wedding bod. However, along with my new job came a free employee gym in the building which I have yet to utilize, but it will happen...next week.
