My (Awesome) Monogrammed Purse

Last week, I posted about the 4th of July

and how

we celebrated at the Mayflower Pub...

In the midst of all the patriotic kumbayah we were passing around,

a lot of you asked about

the purse

I was sporting...

and I'm so glad you did as I've been waiting to tell you all about it.

Yes, this purse does have my initials on it!

And yes, it's totally awesome!

(Oh wait, you didn't ask that question did you? Oh well. It is.)

My buddy, Beth, got one for

Pulp Design

and I went bonkers over it.

Like, I emailed the company,

GiGi New York

, right then & there.

My own bag arrived just in time for my June trip

through Milan & Paris.

Not only is it modern & pretty,

but it's also a great traveling accessory.

It poses well with you in touristy photo-ops,

.... it's functional design makes it ideal for holding small adorable children,

.... it behaves well during Chinese foot massages,

... and it sticks by your side when you are headed to the US Embassy,

your shoe slips off on the Metro platform & falls below the train,

and you are forced to walk with one barefoot up the Champs Elysees to buy a new pair.

{Editor's Note: This is a very real story that I can not retell without crying/laughing.}



might have an awkward strong affection for this purse.

Thank you

GiGi New York

for making something awesome

that I can also (and maybe most importantly?) put my initials on.
