The Purse…

I don’t need another purse.  The mister would say…you don’t need another purse.  But I can’t stop thinking about these three beauties.

Being a 40-something…there are times when I’m wearing workout gear (the perks of having your own business)…but it’s fashionable workout gear.  My gear of choice is Lululemon for those wondering.  It wears well – lifts where we need a little lift and washes well.
