I received a comment on my YouTube Channel on doing a video on What's in my Bag, and decided to film one and include my Kate Spade purse collection.
I'm currently rotating three different bags and included each one since they all deserve a spotlight. All gorgeous and very much loved. If you are thinking into investing in a high quality bag, any of the ones I talk about are absolutely beautiful!
Here is a link to the video:
The older I get, the more I realize I want to invest in quality items. I just don't want to pay retail if I don't have to. I'm huge on eBay and local discount chains like TJ Maxx, Marshall's, Ross. Oh and how I miss Nordstrom and Nordstrom Rack! We have one about an hour away but haven't had a chance to stop by. That is one of the reasons I miss living in Washington state. Ok, the main reasons are missing my friends and family people. It doesn't really disappoint especially after a long work week, it was great taking my girls, and heading for a day of shopping.
I am also a lover of vintage clothing/jewelry. I love shopping at thrift stores and garage sales. It's something that was instilled in me by my mom. She is a bargain shopper to the max. Don't get in her way! I'm not as controlled as she is because I do splurge once in a while if I LOVE something and I have to have it!
For example, I have been eyeing a few umbrella strollers for my baby online and in stores. This past Sunday, my hubs and I went to an Estate Sale, and there it was sitting in the corner. A bright blue Chicco stroller perfect for everyday and traveling selling for $25 bucks. I was like, are you serious?! I'm taking it! I was able to bargain it down to around 10 bucks. Now that is a bargain. It was not brand new, but it sure looked it. And honestly for the price, I don't mind.
I encourage you to be wise with your hard earned money. Shop around and be patient.
