This is the first thing that came to mind very early this morning. No, it's not what you're thinking. (well, maybe it is). I had a flashback to Carrie looking at those beautiful shoes in a store front window. I can't remember- I want to say she was looking at Manolos, but for some reason my mind is thinking another label. My moment was not necessarily in front of a fabulous NYC store front. Rather, it was behind my steering wheel while looking at my blackberry messages from Neiman's. (I know, not so glamorous). So, my little email blast this morning was showing the new Fall collection of Gucci purses now available online. I am a firm believer in spending money on the things that count--shoes and purses. This purse is absolutely gorgeous! Well, actually there are 2 I like, but who's counting? I really love the classic style of both of them. And as I am writing this I think I have decided I like 1 more than the other--I think I like the Hobo more than the Satchel. I think the Hobo would be perfect for work--it would fit everything I have grown to need in my everyday purse, which is a lot. Somehow I have managed to fit things I never thought I would need--a day planner, shuffle, wallet/clutch, separate Hobo change wallet, and the list goes on. I just can't go anywhere without all of these things. Just last night I changed purses and decided I needed to start keeping a leaner purse. So I took out the shuffle and all the cords. (I know this isn't much, but it's a start). And guess what happened today--someone at work needed a shuffle to go run b/c his was broken. And then guess what happened--I didn't have one to let him borrow b/c I was trying not to be a traveling pack rat. Needless to say, I will be putting my shuffle and its cords back in my purse tonight.
On a side note, Neiman's is having free shipping for any purchase with the code NMSUMMER.
