My new salary is bringing out my shopacholic vibes... retail therapy is truly the best therapy there is. I've already started buying things I don't need and I have a running list of things I want. My first real splurge that I want to cross off my list? A new bag.

I have always been a bag lady, as I'm sure I've mentioned time and time again. I got a new C.Wonder (RIP) bag for Christmas but that was when I had a job that required me to bring my laptop to work. Now, I don't need my laptop and I leave a lot of stuff at my desk so my huge tote bag isn't a necessity.

I still would like a larger bag to bring to work because I bring my lunch & water bottle and make-up bag (and other items) but maybe a unstructured tote bag isn't the answer. I would also like something a little more tame (not leopard print) and more professional looking.

Basically, I want a Rebecca Minkoff or Kate Spade bag... both of which are currently sitting in my Nordstrom shopping cart. I get paid Friday, this could surely be the weekend I buy that new bag.

I've never bought a bag for myself, let me state that first. So to me, this is a big deal. All my bags, my entire life, have been gifts. Whether it was birthday, Christmas, or graduations, my bags have always been gifts. Sure, I may have bought myself a wristlet or a non designer bag but to buy a designer bag for myself is a huge deal. It means I'm an adult.

Oh god I have being an adult! I hate using that word!!


I've been doing some serious thinking, for a good few months, on what kind of bag I want--what color, what shape, what size, and I've decided a few contenders. Whether I buy one or buy them all, I'm a little bit obsessed and will surely be buying one of these bad boys in the near future!
