Last Rays of Autumn + A Purse Story

Tuesday, November 12, 2013

Last Friday my sister and I spent the day together enjoying the concluding rays of autumn. It was the most gorgeous day with trees shining their last bursts of yellow and orange. It seems almost surreal to be posting this today because as I peer out my window, I'm currently looking at snow. And it's 26 degrees out. Yeah. Autumn, I will miss you deeply, but you've been 'so' good to us this year.

I can't even tell you the amount of wear I've gotten out of this mustard skirt. It was a Forever 21 clearance buy (a few years back) and I have lived in it ever since. There's SO much you can do with mustard! It's a beautiful color.

I paired the skirt with this aztec Victoria's Secret PINK tank I picked up a few months back, and I love how it worked together! Mustard and prints?.. The staples of a fall wardrobe.

So let's talk about this purse. Yes, it's Philip Lim for Target, yes I love it, and yes, it was a gift. A gift from my sweet sister. And as with all good gifts, this one comes with a story. As most of us 'Philip Lim' lovers know, this limited edition purse collection sold out within a day or two at most Target stores. I went hoping to find one- with no luck.

Our local Goodwill store receives occasional new Target inventory that for whatever reason, didn't sell in stores. My sister visited our Goodwill a few weeks back and found this BRAND NEW Philip Lim purse for less than half the cost of the retail value. I was overjoyed that she found it and was hoping to come across another one! The following Sunday, she gave me HERS as a gift and explained that she really wanted me to have it. I cried. What an amazing sister I have. And what a blessing. :)

Tonight is Ben's birthday so we'll be heading out to celebrate as soon as he get's home! I can't wait. Birthdays are a big deal around here, so we're looking forward to a great evening.

Wishing you all the best week!
