My Twilight Purse

Some of you were asking where I got my purse. Some even ventured to think that I made it myself...um...no. *snort* I wish I had that kind of creativity and talent.


This is the one side.


This is the other side, the inside is black and white striped.

I got the purse for Christmas from my mother. Back in December they had a weekend sale at the Merchandise Mart. Usually, most of the Merchandise Mart isn't open to the public. You have to be a buyer or a designer to be able to purchase anything.

The sale was called "One of a Kind" sale and was open to the public.

After I opened it on Christmas Eve, my mother told me that it was between this one and a Johnny Depp one. She was having a really hard time deciding until the lady selling the purses let her in on a secret. The purse has snaps on the side and when you unsnap them, it opens up the clear plastic overlay. You can switch pictures anytime you want. My mother even suggested that I put pictures of my kids in there...pffft...as if.

I have never been accosted by so many teenage girls in my life than over this purse. Wait until that body spray comes in and they smell me!!!

That's how I got my Twilight purse.
If I decide to go to the Twilight convention this weekend, I will be all set. I have my "Team Edward" shirt, my purse, and hopefully my scent. I will be the biggest (happiest) loser in the place, there might have to be restraining orders put in place.

I. can't. believe. I. didn't. think. of. that.

Seriously. A purse with overlaying plastic. To consume the masses. The Twilight masses who may one day need to replace the beloved Edward with grandkid pictures or some other non-Edward-ian nonsense.

It's brilliant. Effing brilliant.

Almost everything has a scent, most people just don't notice them because weather smells - and many other smells - aren't strong enough to be noticed easily. I only started to really notice them after I lost the last of my sight. But how can you bottle the sunshine smell? And how can you smell it with the other scents? Wouldn't they over-power the sunshine scent?

Just wondering....

I wish I could be a big loser right there with you at that convention, with my purse, and smelling like, whatever it is that you will smell like. **sigh**

Heather said...

You need to bring your blanket, too.

You know, just in case you get cold.

Or Edward wants to lay in the sunshine with you...

COOL PURSE! I want one!

Becky said...

I with Heather! What about your blanket! Surely, you are gonna wrap yourself up in it's fine-ness.

Intense Guy said...

LMAO at your "as if" on the idea of putting pictures of the kids in there... I mean, everyone knows you'd put pictures of your hubby in there...

That is funny!!! I agree you would look like a doof w/ pictures of your kids in there.

Do they make one of those with a zippered compartment on the outside? I gotta have some pockets for all my chapstick and other tons of crap that I carry.

Heather beat me to it! I was going to ask why you wouldn't wrap yourself up in your Twilight blanket too!

ChicagoLady said...

Or maybe drape it around you like a cape?
