Look at the size of that boy's head. It's like an orange on a toothpick.

No, crazies. Those are not sheets. It's a purse bag. A bag for your purse. Stupid, I know, it's supposed to protect it, ugh, nevermind. More on that later.

So did you know that in L.A. we have Water Police? It's true. They will f*ck you up if you leave your sprinklers on, big time. Well, not really. They just 'counsel' you. I'd rather they pull guns on your while you watered your lawn. "PUT DOWN THE HOSE AND BACK AWAY SLOWLY." That'd be way more awesome than advice.

I'm just stalling. Here's what's in the box. I'd been searching for a purse, The Purse, for some time. Requirements? I wanted it BIG. This one - it's...big. Bigger than my head, and I have a huge noggin. Also it was extremely hard to pick such a bright color, because I love black so much. However, seeing as how my entire wardrobe is Sexy Funeral, I thought a bright red purse would stand out and match nicely with all my black dresses and heels. And it does - I'm glad I went out on a limb against my gut feeling.

I love Kate Spade purses because I shun the 'noisy' ones. I am also a freak about structure and her purses are clean, functional and will last for years and years. Also they will not break your back, they are so lightweight. The other detail that drew me was the 'spaghetti' bag straps, strands of straps pieced together. When I bought the bag, I was in the brand new week old Waikiki store. That is fate. They open my favorite store, WHILE I am there on vacation??

KS salesgirl: "Are you in our system?"
Jenn: "Er...uh. *sigh* Uh, I'm sure of it."
KS salesgirl: "Really, what other stores of ours do you frequent?"
Jenn: "Online. New York. Los Angeles...Vegas..."

Yikes. How embarrassing. Fate again? When I went to pay I found out that the purse was 20% off, that day only. FATE.

Gasp! Is that the bag you had with you this weekend? I had to keep far away from you because I was afraid of getting my drool on the gorgeous red leather!

Nice! Oh, and you had me laughing at "sexy funeral". Now I know what to say when my mom tells me I always look like I'm going to a funeral. LOL!

Pretty AND light! But you have to admit Kate Spade sheets would have been pretty cool. Does she make sheets? If not, I'm sure it's only a matter of time...

Aw, shoot! I just bought a new purse, too, and I went with sexy funeral. I just couldn't bring myself to get a purse of color.

Maybe next time. I probably need a 12-step program to help me out of the black or brown purse rut I am in, though, but I am GLAD that you made the leap! And on SALE, too?!

Gorgeous! And the fact that it was serendipity makes it all the better.

Sigh. I love. Must resist the urge to get myself one, because mommy needs new lenses.

Wow, will you be my best friend? I will let you borrow, well let you borrow anything you'd like, if you'd let me borrow your purse.
