This weekend my Mom surprised me when she layed a box of shoes on my kitchen counter. She had seen these great beige sandals and knew I would love them, and I do. They have a wood heel and I just love the color because there have been several times when I think I need just a basic shoe in this color that would go with everything, and so now I have a pair. I wore them to work one day with a dress and although Fall has arrived, I think I can continue to wear them with jeans for a while until it gets too cool. It's still pretty warm in the 70's and 80's here in Memphis during the day.
Then Sunday night, Mike and I were running around a little and ended up going into Marshall's. I browsed around and popped over to the handbag section and didn't see anything I just had to have. I noticed a cute orange patent bag. I wasn't just head over heels in love with it, but I thought it was cute. I thought I would just look and see what the price was and it said $10. I thought, wow, for that price I am getting it. I strolled around a little more and saw the same bag and it was SEVEN dollars. Only 3 dollars difference I know, but hey - it was an even better deal! Not quite sure why one was less then the other, but I'm just glad I found it. The bag is by Chines Laundry and originally would be almost $80 in a department store. So I thought that was a great deal! I may not carry it everyday, but for the price and then it being a great orange color, I will carry it some this fall. I was thinking I should have gone ahead and gotten the other one (probably could have gotten it for $7 too) and given it as a Christmas gift. hmmm . . . . may have to go in there and see if they still have it. Oh and I guess I should clarify and say that Mike actually bought me the purse, ha ha! So I got 2 cute things this weekend, and didn't have to spend a dime of my own moo-la! =)
Oh and if you go the the Chinese Laundry web-site, you will find the same bag in a green and white . . . . but for $80.
One more thing - the song I have on my playlist now is one of my new fav's! The beginning of the song is by a group called Imogen Heap and is one of their songs that has been out for a few years. I have always loved their music and their song that was put into this rendition was one of my favorites. You should check out the original version of this song. It is called "Hide and Seek." One of my other favorites by them is "Speeding Cars." I think both of these are on my playlist too, so you should check it out.
Night night all!
