Greatest Day Ever: Coach Purse

I'd like to introduce you to my "new to me" Coach purse and matching wallet. First of all, I am very fortunate to have a super sweet and thoughtful friend. In conversation she had asked if I had seen her new purse yet. My eyes light up, of course, at the mere mention of accessories. "You got a new purse?!", I exclaimed, "Show me, show me!" At the moment, it didn't dawn on me that it was pink and a bit more fashion vs function for her practical style. She held it up, extending her hand to me, purse dangling from it. I gave it an all over looksie... "I loved it! It's super cute and pink." Well I guess those are just the words she wanted to hear. And then came the words, "It's yours." OMG! "Are you joking?" I must have hugged her like 10 times! She told me that a client of hers was way into purses, had maybe used it twice, and in doing some spring cleaning thought my friend could use it- in reality she wouldn't. And that ends up being awesome for me.
The purse even goes lovely with my lilac, pink and blue Eeyore Scrubs.

Also an update on my last thrifty finds:

Green Silk Scarf ($1.50) , Navy Purse ($2.50), Leather Belt ($1), Blue Printed Top ($2), Blue Silky Scarf ($1.50)


  1. I need to go thrifting with you once the 30x30 is over! I'd love to go with someone else to be able to cover more ground.

  2. Um..that is just awesome. I love it & it's pink. Being pink & coach, can't get no better than that. Lucky you!

  3. @Tiffany- gosh would that be fun! I'm totally game. Which places do you frequent down there? My fave is the Hospice Thrift Store in PV, since it's so close to my house. Also just discovered not even a block away is the Firestation Thrift. These two places are awesome in the fact that they hold a 50% off sale the first weekend of the month.

    @Miss Mommy- pink is fantastic. Can't complain. Thanks again for stopping by.
