Today’s post is all about the bag! I recently went on a mini shopping spree at a local Kate Spade outlet. It was my Mother’s Day present from my honey hubby and I indulged myself by purchasing three bags.

 Before I went shopping, I decided I needed a strategy because… honestly…if left to my own devices in a Kate Spade store, I could either buy way too much and blow my budget or buy absolutely nothing at all. Buying nothing at all isn’t due to not finding a plethora of items I want, desire and covet.…it is due to being so totally overwhelmed and essentially star struck (yes, I know it’s sad that I’m star struck by a store full of purses) that I become indecisive and essentially purchasing paralyzed. This happens to me all the time at Barnes and Noble. I must go in with a plan or I wander aimlessly down aisle after aisle until I’m so exhausted I leave empty handed. I’m sure there is some sort of “syndrome” for this…but I’ve yet to label myself with some “-ism” and prefer to attack with a plan instead!

Back to my plan….my plan was to buy two to three bags that were unlike what I already own. I’m working on building a collection and I’ve covered several looks and needs with the bags I have purchased previously. Soooo…I was looking for different colors, different shapes and possible different sizes although I prefer a larger bag typically. I will say, I feel I was quite successful in the execution of such a plan, yes…quite successful. See that pop of color dangling from my hands! 

Notice the details…notice the colors….notice the absolute awesomeness of the chain and…not to be missed…the detail on the clasp! It is a bag unlike any other of my collection! Be still my beating heart but isn’t it a lovely piece of leather?!

I did buy two other fab.u.lous bags….one of which has been featured in this week’s earlier posts. I love them too and they also move me forward in completing my collection. Hope you guys have a great Mother’s Day weekend! Xoxo…Cortneybre…

    1. Thanks so much!! I thought it was a great addition to my collection and I just love the color! Thanks for the comment and I’m following you now! XX..Cortneybre…

  1. Love all of it! Great gift!! That bag has really great colors and tones~! Also, that totally happens to me sometimes! It’s like there’s so much, that I just walk away because it’s just too much! …on the other hand, get in me in a used book store and it’s like there’s no stopping me….15 books later, I walk out!!

    1. Thank you! I really do love the bag…the colors are just so pretty and bright. I’m really an either/or at the bookstore – I LOVE to read and so I’m either so overwhelmed with the awesomeness of the selection that I don’t buy anything…or I buy waaay too much! 🙂 XX…Cortneybre…
