Baroque and Old Gold

Do you ever in your shopping excursions buy something that you think you will hardly ever use, but you buy it anyway because you LOVE it?

So it was with this handbag. I don't know whether it was the baroque fabric or the old gold look of the hardware - it just caught my eye. 

Pink Calico: Baroque Purse

Even the innards were a pretty leopard print, and it came with a little compact mirror too.  I couldn't put it down.  It might've actually called to me until I bought it.  Does that ever happen to you?

Pink Calico: Baroque Purse

I've used it only once because it is a touch smaller than I like; since it was only $6 and there was 50% off on top, I still think it is a good buy.  Have you bought stuff that you just love but don't actually use?

  2. Oh yeah! I'm familiar with that experience. I usually do use it at some point, but I know when I get that feeling that I better buy the item or I'll be kicking myself and loosing sleep for not getting it.

  5. I find I do buy things impulsively at the thrift stores because I think they are a great buy! Since I have started my blog, I have be able to look a things differently, and that is why I love my DIY Wednesdays. Sometimes, I take those buys and make them into something I might use more often. Thanks so much for joining my blog!
