Last night, I spent some time with Mr. RH and left his apartment in a huff. It wasn't intentional, per se, but I was definitely having some unkind thoughts on the way home. And when I'm huffy, I get a little sloppy.
I hop into the car, throw my sherpa-like 3 bags of my belongings onto the passenger seat... and then I drive. As soon as I pull out of the parking lot, I hear the voicemail alert noise on my phone. No big deal, let me just grab my phone and listen.
So I dig. And dig. And omfg where is my phone. It's funny, because I had the thought as I was leaving Mr. RH's apartment that I didn't triple-check to make sure I had my phone...but alas, every 2 minutes on the dot, I hear it chirp.
Took me 14 minutes to get home, approximately. I kept moving bags from the passenger seat to my lap to the back seat, waiting to see if the "beep" moved and if maybe I had misplaced my phone into the wrong bag.
The purse, which I suspected held the phone, has long had a ripped interior lining on the outside pocket. The outside pocket is the easiest place to dump a phone... but I never do because goodness knows what happens to things that slip inside the lining. Ick.
After a very frustrating 14 minutes in the car, I had to use another phone to call my phone (THREE TIMES!) before I found my phone. Wedged between the passenger seat and the door, where I must've dropped it before Mr. RH and I picked up dinner.
All of this long-windedness to say, basically, holy sh*tballs I need a new purse!!
Every time I post that I need a new bag, everyone tells me I need a Coach bag. Cause that's what people have and apparently it's the best.
No offense to All The People, but I'm not buying a Coach bag. They're just expensive and I can't justify a bag more than $100 cause I regularly leave it on the (FILTHY!) floor at work and I just don't care enough for my purses. They get thrown in and out of cars on the regular... so a fancy bag just won't do.
My current bag is pretty pathetic... it looks very similar to this (very sad) bag I found on Amazon.
I like a nice-sized bag... but with this, I was lugging everything I owned everywhere. Slightly problematic for my back.
I like leather cause they seem to stay pretty clean for me - and I like at least a small outside pocket to throw my phone and keys in for easy retrieval.
So. You probably have a favorite bag, right, oh stylish readers?! Give me your wisdom, I'm desperate.
Favorite bag? Brand? Anything? Please and thank you... it's time for me to treat myself. Cause I clearly don't do that enough already.
