Jane By Design Challenge 3: The Perfect Purse

Ms. Chandler Murray has offered me another bite of the fashionable apple; she's tasked me to feature my favorite purse.  Other than shoes, purses are my favorite thing to browse obsess over online.  While I love my menagerie of purses, my gold Foley + Corinna Mid City Tote is above and beyond my favorite.

I love this purse for many, many reasons but primarily because to me, it represents becoming an Independent Woman.  Just like the ladies of Destiny's Child sang so very long ago, "the [purse] on my arm - I bought it."  After I had been working awhile, this was the first nice bag I bought myself. I thought about it for months, actually visiting department stores just to touch it before I finally bought one to pet at home.

The buttery leather is amazingly soft and the brushed gold color is both classic and special.  As Foley + Corinna state on their website, their pieces are "the perfect mix of sophistication, fun and function for the chic city woman."  I'm a city gal who needs a bag that seamlessly transitions from day to night, and this one does it well.  I call it my Mary Poppins bag because it holds a magical amount of loot for its small size. The metallic color pairs well with tailored pieces for work and equally well with jeans, heels and a sparkly top for girl's night out.

What more can I say, I love this bag! It's been a good bag to me for and we've had a lot of great times together.  Do you have a favorite purse?  If so, what makes it special to you?  Is it a souvenir or a gift, a great deal or your first splurge item?  Shout it out on the Jane By Design Facebook page, and tell the ladies over there I sent you!

If you are celebrating, Merry Christmas! Everyone have a happy and healthy weekend!

oh cara, i love that! it is so beautiful! I don't think i can pick a favorite purse, but my most favorite purse from when i was a little girl was purple patent and it had a big jewel for the closure. I still remember loving that thing so much! I've always been a purse addict.
