Shocking! I know.
I enjoy luxury items most of the time. I’m a confessing brand snob, if you will. Not proud.
I sleep on vicose sheets.
I carry real leather bags.
I wear real leather coats.
I wear name brand clothing, unless I’m out sourcing.
I wear Quality shoes.
You get the point.
I wasn’t always this way. Not by a long shot.
Maybe as you age, you just want to treat yourself better. If possible. I’m the same with my kids. Not that they care about brands. Except my oldest.
Also; I should point out…nothing has to be brand new to me. I’d much rather have a used quality item then a brand new cheap one. I know many friends who insist on things being new. This is not me at all. Used, yet of good quality is fine by me. 😃
Jumping into this review…
Erm…This perfect purse.
While out grocery shopping a couple months ago, I decided to wiz through the the handbags; just for fun.
My eyes went to a Big Buddha bag, which use to be a higher end brand. I examined the quality made Purses, which had $40-$50 price tags. 😳Much too much for Walmart, I quickly thought thought.
Then I walked over to all the other bags. Like the one above. Not real leather, but for the $9.97 price tag… I picked one up to inspect. It didn’t feel like leather. But it felt okay. Zippers felt smooth and opened with ease. Adjustable strap. Stitching and seams were all straight. No loose threading. It looked and felt lightweight. All things I look at, before purchasing a new bag.
I have been looking for a cross-body purse that I could use while out sourcing, and thought that it would be a perfect little bag for the task.
I thought it would be a perfect hands free bag.
They came in maroon, black, brown, hunter green, cream, and Navy. They looked like they had a place that another color was, but it must have been sold out. Awesome color selection too!
I chose the black one. I know. Boring..
I brought it home and my daughter quickly noticed the purse sticking out of the Walmart bag.
She gave me an odd look. “Walmart?” She questioned me.
I told her that I needed something cheap that I didn’t care if it got dirty, etc. But more importantly, I needed something that would allow me to source with my hands free… because a fanny pack just wouldn’t fit around my fanny. 😏
That night I took everything out of my Calvin Klein bag, and placed it in my new ten dollar Walmart purse. Then I tried it on. You know, walked around the house with it. Hands free!
My husband saw me, and asked if I was going somewhere. I told him no.. then explained to him how I bought a special purse to use when I went out sourcing.
Of course he didn’t understand. Men!? 😐
So where is this longgg drawn out story going….
In a nutshell: I source a few times a week and I found myself switching back and forth all month long…
But then I found myself upset when I had kept switching back to my designer bags..😱
I was actually missing my cheap little gem.
This bag is the perfect medium size, hands free, bag. It is!
It has just the right amount of pockets, and us set up so practical.
Cell phone slips easily on one side, which doesn’t have a snap or zipper closure.
Stevia, Lippy, and pen in the other side. (Showing In the above picture) which does zip.
Large inside with side zippered area for smaller stuff. I can for a full size wallet, notepad, more makeup, and first aid in the main pouch.
The bag is the best $10 I ever spent!
So for the past month I have been solely carrying it.
I was at a friends house the other day, when she noticed my bag and asked me which brand it was. Knowing that I only carry nicer bags..
I smiled, and told her Walmart! 🤣
Her reply: Noooooo!
So last night while out grocery shopping… I grabbed one in gray. I guess that’s the color that was sold out last time.
Now I have one to switch over too when I want to look extra put together. 😁
There we go.. She’s all set! 😊
