Today I'm participating in the "It's in the Bag" blog crawl put on by Ashley Hasty at A Hasty Life blog. We are supposed to share our purse, and the contents of our purse.
I swear, I'm honestly not a designer bag kind-of-a-girl! Seriously.
I can't justify spending the dinero. I'd rather travel. But in my earlier days, I was gifted numerous hand-me-down Louis Vuittons. I've kind of outgrown the trend, as they are not functional to me. For those of you who have been following awhile, know I'm the owner of Photography Getaways, so naturally, I have my camera, and an additional lens, plus a tour book with me most of the time. I had to have a bag that could qualify as a large enough "carry-on purse" for flying to fit my camera and extra lens, and even props. So this Charlotte Russe felt ruffle bag for $25 has been outstanding! Also, when I graduated college, I had the option of choosing between the Louis Vuitton suitcase or a Nikon camera. While the suitcase would have been nice, it would have been the BIGGEST mistake of my life. I would not be where I am today, if I hadn't gone with the camera. :)
I must say that the other bloggers I've seen participating in the blog crawl have such neat and tidy designer purses with minimal content. I know my purse doesn't look like that normally. I usually have receipts, movie stubs, and gum wrappers that get thrown in the mess when a wastebasket is not close at hand, and all kinds of hair rubberbands. But for presentation sake, I'll show you how it's supposed to look. :)
Nikon D70 camera
