Once there was a girl named Val (me) and her most wonderful green purse. She took her purse everywhere … to the mall and the grocery store; to the park and on first dates; to the movies and even into her dreams, for she loved her purse so much.

But such a pure love could not last.

The jealous eye shadow (cheap, awful eyeshadow I will never forgive) exploded in my purse and stained everything a noxious yellow. My cell phone, lotion, lip gloss, wallet, even my hands were instantly posioned! It was so bad, I had to toss everything, including my favorite wallet I bought in Venice, Italy, and yes, even my beloved purse.

But with heartbreak comes hope. Thankfully Lulu*s has some super cute items to replace my lost love. The Too Legit Handbag in Black [sold out!] is a nice size for day-to-day use, and every wallet needs rose on it (in my opinion) so the Jungle Rose Wallet in Leopard [sold out!] is just perfect! And so I don’t forget my old purse, a new green friend — The Owl Pal Wristlet!



The lesson here?  1) Love your purse while you can.

                            2) Be willing to accept the new bags in your life.

                            3) Don’t buy cheap make-up out of someone’s truck.
