Soo... Purses?

First off, if you love makeup (which I do), Chic Critique is letting you peek inside the contributors makeup bags this week. My post went up yesterday. And if you are so inclined, we've got a page up where you can share your makeup bag so we can all indulge our voyeuristic tendencies.

And feel free to tell me I really do look better with makeup on - as a commenter yesterday seems to disagree. Not gonna lie, I was a little affronted at that one. (Oh no she didn't....)
The interview yesterday went well, as you can tell in this post-interview photo.
That's my lovely pulled together outfit. You may remember the shirt is a clearance top from Target.

But besides that - can we talk about how pale my face is? Seriously, the only distinguishable color characteristic on my face is the dark purple UNDER my eyes. Yeow. Just wow.

Also, that's Panera Mac & Cheese in my hand. I NO LONGER recommend it. It was overly-cheesey and honestly didn't taste that great. Aand it left me in bed for most of the rest of the day with stomach issues. Leave it at that, ladies. Nas-tay.
On my Q&A post way back when, Gwen asked about my favorite handbag. Honestly, I don't have one. I like patent leather and I prefer tote-style bags... but honestly, I just don't have a favorite.

Or a budget that allows for such splurges. YET!

Anyway, I was in Target yesterday in my interview outfit toddling around the store when I spied an adorable spring bag. Not gonna lie, I want.
Normally, I hate black and yellow together but the Merona Collection Tote is definitely making me rethink my priorities.

What kind of purse are you carrying right now? As in today? Mine's the same patent leather bag from Target that I've been carrying since September. Classy I ain't!

Have a fabulous Tuesday!!

Glad your interview went well! I really like your pulled together outfit :)

I was in Target just the other day as well and fell IN LOVE with that hand bag. I think it's adsolutely adorable! I just don't know if I really should buy it. I might get the black patent leather one just like it to be safe, cause that's me, always safe lol.

I'm carrying a browm leather purse from Aldo.

I am carrying a black quilted chain bag, very Chanelesque, but thrifted for $3.

I have been loving your posts and tagged you over at my Mommy blog
You said you need something to post about yesterday, so I thought I would help you out! ;)

Champagne Mom said...

So happy to hear that the interview went well! When will you hear back from them?

Cute outfit! I assume you had the jacket buttoned since the shirt is shear?

And as far as that purse goes, I saw it, LOVE it and was instantly reminded of Cher's outfit on clueless. LOL

I seriously think I need that bag. Maybe as a birthday gift to myself :)

Thomasina said...

I love makeup too. I'm always careful though because when I'm not wearing any, I don't want to be the woman who looks like a totally different person. That's freaky.
My passion in life, handbags. I love them and I have a ton. I change my handbag every few weeks, and I don't tend to reuse them. I personally think Target is a great place for handbags, especially when you're shopping on a budget.

Katherine said...

That bag is super cute (and I normally don't like black and yellow together either).

Have you ever checked local salons for fun handbags? I have found some very designer-style bags at local salons and boutiques and often get compliments on them!

Sara said...

Oh, I love purses!! I'm such a handbag snob though. I'm currently rotating a Burberry bucket tote with a Kate Spade faux fur one. Both are so warm and wintery! Love your blog!

You look so cute!!!!

Kassie said...

Yay for great interviews!! Right now I'm carrying a gray purse from target. I have a lot of purses, but I tend to use the same one every day, much more convienent!

Lauren @ Dreams Take Flight said...

That yellow and black purse is too cute!! I'm glad you got the pink top, I love it. Ohhh, Target. :)

Mindy said...

Aw, your interview outfit is cute and so is that picture! I'm glad it went well!

I definitely have you beat because I've been carrying my purse since not this fall, but LAST fall. LOL. I am SO EMBARRASSED. Time slipped away! Do I have to talk about it? Because my new one that is coming my way is soo much better!!! :) That purse is cute too by the way!

P.S.- I will be staying away from Panera mac & cheese. I have enough stomach problems as it is!

Sara said...

Oh, right now today, I'm carrying my well-loved Vera Bradley baby bag in Mediterranean white. But w/in the next couple weeks, I'm transitioning back into real adult handbags w/ the Lilly Pulitzer Pandamonium original tote that my sweet husband pre-ordered for me for my birthday.

Glad the interview went well!
