Wow! I feel so much better today. Wouldn’t you know that a weather front has been sitting over top of me since Monday and I have been all tight and tense. I felt like a cartoon character that you see that always has the rain cloud following him around. As you can see, I opened the box and took out my new LV handbag. I usually say purse but I feel like I need to be fancy and say handbag for this thing. Lol! Thank you gurls so much for all the encouraging comments that you made about the purchase. Who knew that the hardest thing that I have done to come out of my comfort zone was buying a purse? I thought that public speaking was hard but this was much harder. Lol!
Some of you mentioned that I “deserved” the handbag but that is not exactly correct. Instead, I am going with those who said that I “earned” the handbag because that is how I feel. I know that for some people that purchase could have been a house payment or a car payment so I think that is where the “guilt” comes in for me. I would never advocate not paying your bills to buy something frivolous. But, at the same time, if you work hard for your money and you have extra to spend on clothing, jewelry, handbags, or in my husband’s case, golf clubs, then go for it. Life is short so eat the cake, smell the roses, and buy the purse. Lol! I bought this crisp white top when I went on my trip to Nashville the other day. Of course, this was on clearance. Lol! I bought this and a couple other things at Ann Taylor and you just wait until you see some of the other things that I bought. I loved this top because of the sleeves. I liked the cut-out details and I also liked that it was long sleeved. I can wear this year around by simply raising or lowering the sleeves. I prefer to wear my sleeves at the 3/4 length because I think it actually makes you look thinner. Maybe that is all in my head but that is my story and I am sticking with it. Lol! This is cotton and machine washable but I can also see an iron in my future with this top. I guess there is a give and take to be had with this top.
Let me start by saying that I did not think that I would like these earrings when I ordered them or even when they came and I took them out of the box. However, once I put them on just to see what they looked like, I loved them. I can’t even tell you why exactly. Maybe it is the spot where they hang, or the shape of the opening that sits right at your chin level, or maybe it is the little tassels. Whatever it is, I like the Dawna statement earrings. They are navy with pink accent beads and navy tassels. The Lottie necklace is one that has been in Plunder for a while and it is still one of the favorites by my customers. Pearls can be worn with so many things and this necklace can be dressed up or worn with jeans, it is up to you. The multi-pearl bracelet is no longer available for purchase from Plunder. I had someone message me today about the bracelets that I wear on my left arm. These are Alex and Ani bracelets. Mine were gifts from Rodan + Fields but I do have several that I purchased from Alex and Ani myself. I love them. Also, if you noticed, I am wearing my latest present from R+F, my Apple Watch. I swear I was almost as excited to earn the Apple Watch as I was the Cancun trip. Almost, but not quite. Lol!!! My capri pants are navy and white and I am telling you that because it is so hard to tell navy from black sometimes. This was a pair that I got in my StitchFix box when I tried that subscription service. I love classic navy and white and even though these aren’t a “true” polka dot, they are at least close. These have the spandex stretch material added and they are pull-on. That means that they are comfortable and I can live with that. These pants could be worn dressy or casual, it is up to you and what kind of shoes and accessories you decide to pair with them. The brand of these pants is Margaret M in case you were wondering.
So, here is a picture of my new purse. It is the Neverfull and it came with a wristlet also. I have the purse sinched up on the sides using the straps. When you let that out then the bag will look like a huge tote. I always carry large bags so this is not an issue for me. This is the larger size called the GM but there are smaller versions also called the MM and the PM. I chose the classic monogram design on canvas with the tan interior. I almost went with the bright raspberry color but then decided that the pink was all I saw when I looked at the purse. If I am going to carry this for a long time I decided to keep it neutral so that I didn’t get tired of it. I had a great time on my very first virtual Facebook event on Monday night and I meant to thank all of you who watched and supported me on there. If you missed it don’t worry because I will be having these events fairly often. I know that most of you can’t come to my house to see what R+F has to offer so I will come to your house, virtually that is. Lol!
