My sister and brother-in-law gave me a gift card to Express and I went and bought a purse that looked just like the Fossil one above yesterday: It was originally 59 dollars, on sale for 30, and with an additional 20% off I got it for 25. However I realized I'm really dependent on putting my purse over my shoulder, and the small strap here doesn't allow for that. It does come with a long strap, but I felt it just didn't look as good worn that way. At some point in the next few days/weeks I'll be returning to the store to see what I can purchase instead.
Here are a few options I looked at:
Straw Shoulder Bag: (buy here)
I thought this smaller bag was very cute and perfect for summer! I love the chain strap and it's a really nice length to comfortably go over the shoulder. My concern is the small size. You all know from this post that I carry a lot of stuff around! Also they only had two left when I was there yesterday, so they might be gone by the time I go back!
Ruffled Scoop Neck Tank: (buy here)
I really loved this tank. I tried it on in a size medium and it was too baggy, and I didn't bother looking for a size small because I just decided to get the purse instead. Now that I'm returning the purse, I'll have to dig around to see if a size small is there, and if it's not too tight on me. I lost all the baby weight, but my stomach is still not where I want it to be, so this might not be the right purchase for me. If it works I'll be happy though, 'cuz I can't get enough of stripes lately!
Enamel Hinge Bracelet: (Buy here)
I loved this bracelet, but it was 19.90 and I don't really like spending that much on one item of jewelry. It was buy one get another half off though, so if I got two it would be like getting them for 15 dollars each. They came in white, blue, lavender and pink.
Status Link Enamel Hinge Bracelet: (buy here)
These came in several color combinations, and some had silver links and some gold. I don't like mixing metals and I prefer silver to gold so I'd probably stick to the red and silver or black and silver. Although I really liked how the white and gold one looked! If my wedding ring was gold I'd definitely get that one!
Am I the only one who buys something only to promptly decide to return it? Anyone else out there do the same? My mom says the nice thing about returning stuff is that you get the fun of shopping again! Too true!
