I have been looking for a new purse for a long time. Since I’m not leaving the house all that much, I don’t need the gigantic one I had whenI lived in NYC (you know, with an umbrella, kleenex, spare book, water bottle, anything I might need in the span of a day). I’m really picky and there aren’t a lot of cheap local choices, so I have been relying on a clutch I bought at Renegade last summer. But, since I don’t want to accidentally leave it anywhere, either here or there, I got to it and made myself a new little purse.
