i'm struggling with where to start with this one. i know - the beginning would be the obvious place, but that's the problem. i can't figure out where that is. as such, i'm just gonna type and hope this makes some kind of sense.
thank you in advance for hanging around to see how it all unfolds.
if you happen to be a designer handbag enthusiast, i'm sure you can tell what kind this is.
this Coach purse is mine, but i didn't buy it. it was a gift. for delivering a baby. well, not really delivering it (that just sounds extra dramatic!) but for accompanying my neighbor friend - in the delivery room - when she gave birth to her third child. a very touching experience to say the least.
without dragging this out too much, here's what happened in a nutshell: the baby came a couple of weeks early and Dad-To-Be left to go out of town the day the baby decided to come. The Girl was their full-time babysitter and since they have no family at all here in Texas, we were naturally the ones Mom-To-Be called when the contractions kicked in and she knew it was time. Grandma-To-Be caught a flight in from Connecticut (I picked her up from the airport) and she expressed her gratitude for us being there for her daughter by getting me a purse and The Girl a backpack.
this wasn't the purse GTB originally bought for me. it was the same style, but black with signature Cs. she included a gift receipt and i exchanged it for this one and The Girl swapped her backpack for sunglasses and a wallet...seeing how it was her senior year in high school, a backpack was the last thing she wanted.
i have a cutoff price for purses. it's fifty bucks.
that was until i got this one. i can now see how a quality purse can be well worth the money when you can truly afford it. especially when you can take advantage of outlet store prices. while i would never buy one at MSRP, i would get one at 50% off or more.
do you swear by expensive high-end purses or can you roll with a cute one that costs less and pocket the change?!
