I have a birthday coming up soon.
And you can bet it's ALL about a new purse.
I've decided to invest in a bag I can love for a long time and have spent time analysing my favourite purses—the shape, the pockets, the straps—making me
a Certified Purse Nerd (CPN).
During this extensive research process I decided I want a purse that I can shove everything into, while keeping my hands free, but not looking like a traditional "work" bag.
My CPN Conclusion? The Bucket Bag.

But since I can't spend house payments on a purse, I am opting for the Alexander Wang Diego Bag in black with rose gold hardware (also shown above in yellow).

My CPN Analysis also confirmes that if I use it
5 months out of the year, over the next 3 years, it only costs me $1 a day!
What do you think? Did I choose well?
How often do you change purses? Every Day? Weekends? With every outfit? Never?
Which of these would you choose?
