a touch of quirk : handbags & coin purses




One of my favorite looks is a classic, preppy one.  It gives off an aura of intelligence and grace, but can sometimes be a little too stuffy.  To make sure I don't look too "country club" I try to incorporate at least one unexpected item to add a little fun to the outfit.  The best (and easiest!) way to do this is with a cute, quirky little purse or handbag.  I've rounded up a few examples that I'd love to have by my side.

from left to right

fish tote, sequined panda, pineapple (asos, but no longer available), chocolate bar, wide eyed panda, turtle, mouse, fish, armadillo, kitty cat

And just for fun, how about this 'slice of cake' purse for a whopping $5,000!
