Tag! I'm it!

So I took my exam and now I can get back to blogging!! Yayyyy! 

CC over at TheTurquoiseHighway has tagged me so I have a little game-cheer to spread, but first I must give you all an inside sum sum with my bag. 

Here are the rules:
1. Post a picture of the bag, purse, handbag, pocketbook [whatever you call it] that you are carrying. Now, don't you even think about going back there to your closet and getting your very favorite one or that cute little vintage clutch that you carried the last time you went out...I want to see the purse that you carried today!

2. Tell us how much it cost. Oh my, I know what you are thinking - a proper lady would never discuss matters of money, darling. Well, yes, but today we are gonna break that rule and tell. Yes, tell how much it cost. We won't judge. This is for entertainment purposes only.
And if there is a story that goes along with this purse, tell it.

3. Tag some other girls, and see how they haul around their daily essentials.



I received this red, Longchamp purse for Christmas, and I requested it so it was free for me (yay!!). I believe the price of it is around $175, though. I originally asked for the deep purple one, and my mom did get me a deep purple one, but it was the smaller size with shorter handles. So, 3 or 4 weeks later, I received my new Longchamp purse in a bigger size (like I wanted) and in red, rather than the deep purple. They sold out of the deep purple in the bigger size, but that's okay, I love the red. Perhaps my next Longchamp will be in purple.

I cannot express how happy I am that I got this bag. I've been the victim of broken straps twice  and dirty bags, and this has yet to do either. It looks almost like it did the day I received it in the mail in the pretty envelope. It stays on my shoulder very well because it has two straps, which is awesome, too. Oh! And talk about ROOMIE! This bag can fit everything and your grandmother inside, it's huge...which causes a bit of disorganization and a broken back on my part because I can stuff that baby. In the winter, when I'm shopping, I like to tie my scarf around the straps where they connect to the bag, it doubles for a pretty and dramatic bag accessory? haha.

Okay, so now I tag...

Love the Longchampie :) You should put little bags in it to keep your things organized like TR. She's just so wise.... :)

Longchamp bags are my favorite carry everything everywhere without worrying that I'll forget something at home bags. I bought my first one five years ago and it still looks almost as fantastic as the day I unfolded it. Enjoy yours! I love that color red too.
