gray is the new black.

I went shopping today, looking for a new purse.

Bags are my "weakness", I heart them and have way too many! Last spring I coveted a yellow boho bag, then a dark orange one for summer, them plum for fall. I thought I was looking for black today until I saw this one at Target... it called to me.



It's simple and the perfect size for me. Love the side pockets for my phone and sunglasses!

I have never had a silver bag before... I love it, but thought it needed "something". I first thought of a scarf, but I don't have one small enough.

* side note- does anyone sell small scarves to add to your bag? Please let me know if you know of a good place that makes them (preferably handmade!) *

So then I remembered that Lindsey from The Pleated Poppy had sent me a surprise pack of her posey pins- perfect!



Isn't it cute? You can put the pins on your shirt, a jacket or a bag! Would be cute on a camera strap too!



Love it! Thank you Lindsey!

Very cute! My current bag right now is silver..a little bit lighter than yours, but I've never thought of adorning it with something! Great idea! I wish my bag had side pockets though..I'm always losing my phone in there!

Mandy said...

Ooooh, I love it with the little flower, so pretty!

Susan said...

oh my! it is perfect! and it's calling my name, too! i have a mustard yellow one that i got at target about... a summer ago??? and anyway, i need an update because i've worn that poor thing out. my problem is that i'm presently obsessed with the color yellow. however, this grey/silver bag solves my problem!!! i have the perfect yellow sash to attach to it! yay! thank you so much for sharing about it. now all i have to do is fit it into my budget. fortunately, target bags aren't quite as pricey as chanel. ha ha ha.

I bought a greyish-silver purse last summer and loved how versatile it was. Might just have to run down to Target and get this one ... Oh, and cute idea with the pin!

Love the new bag!

although not handmade, coach usually has some really cute "purse sized" scarves that you can embellish. they come in some fun prints and colours, and if you have a coach outlet near you, they are reasonably priced!

Love the purse!! But the addition of the flowers is fabulous

Biba said...

So pretty! I always pin corsages and angel brooches on my bags (and everything else, for that matter...) too! Love the colour of the bag, it's so go-with-everything, isn't it? Enjoy wearing it!

I have a green bag that my older daughter got me for Christmas that I love, but it too needs something... I have been looking at scarves for a month, but I love the flower idea. If you don't mind me copying you, I think I will pop over and get one.

What a great bag!

Celeste said...

LOVE it!! (and, I have a ton of Lindsey's posey pins!) (:

...I too have a bag-weakness. I have been "on the hunt" for a gray/silver bag - so I guess I need to re-look Target!!

Stephanie R. said...

Perfect! I will be checking out that website. Thanks for posting! Love the background music on your blog.

So cute and the flower is so perfect! I too have a bag weakness...buying my first coach purse soon, I have been saving!!!

Jill said...

I love purses too! It is the one vice I have and I can't control it. I love this one. Just got some shoes yesterday at Marshalls that would go perfectly with this. I think I will have to go and check it out!

I am mildly obsessed with bags too! Especially purses. I haven't gotten one in about a year and I am going through withdrawls. ha!! :)

The last one I bought was a metallic gray/silver one from Target. I love your new bag. May need to head to Target soon and check it out!

gina said...

I too have been looking for a new purse! I loved your's so much I picked one up for myself. I loved your idea of sticking the posie on there and remembered I had a similar item so I put this: http://www.doodledesignshop.com/catalog.php?item=294

on mine. Thanks for the idea!!
