Purses ... My News and Michael Kors News

Yesterday, Michael Kors announced his lawsuit against Costco for a Bait and Switch Advertising Scheme with his handbags.
According to news sources, Costco has done this before.  They must not have learned a lesson.  CLICK  HERE to see ABC News report.
My news is much smaller.  I like to use big purses for work during the school year and I recently found this BIG BUDDHA I really liked at Marshalls.  Click on their name to see their Fall 2013 line.
Then, I walked down the street to a yard sale and found a beautiful red leather ELLEN TRACY classic handbag.  Both will be perfect for when I return to teaching next month!!

Anyone else have handbag news to share??

Have a wonderful Wednesday!!  Today is my beautiful daughter's 27th birthday!!  I am so proud of her and wish her a good one!!  She is turning out to be a great mom herself!!


  1. I love big purses too - except I tend to cram as much as I can into them and I end up with a back ache lol
    Those ones are gorgeous..........
    As is your daughter !!!

  2. Your daughter is so pretty! You really scored with those two bags, although the red one is my fave. I have several big purses, scored on clearance or thrifted, that I use instead of briefcases.

  3. Love these! I have a Big Buddha too and it's one of my favorites. Your daughter looks so lovely.

  4. Love the yard sale find and the beautiful scarf attached, which adds a touch of color. Your daughter is gorgeous and I see you in her.

  5. What great finds! I love a big purse like the red one, it makes such a statement while still being useful. Happy Birthday to your daughter -- she is lovely :)

  6. Cute bags!!
    Happy birthday to your daughter--funny thing our daughter turned 27 on June 14th--our girls are only about a m9onth apart ina age!

    I totally NEEd a grandbaby!!

  7. Love your purse and scarf, so pretty.

  8. You have the most amazing fortune in finding such great bargains. Perhaps I just don't take advantage of opportunities in which to find them. Shopping after all, is not my favorite pastime. Your daughter is beautiful and best wishes to her.

  9. I haven't purchased any as of yet, but I've seen the Big Buddha line of purses and they are quite fun!


Thanks so much for joining in our conversation today! I appreciate your time and love hearing from you!
