I have it. Bad. I made the mistake of not leaving the building for lunch on this beautiful 80 degree day and paid the price is some serious restlessness by 3:30. So, I got up to go to the bathroom and strolled right on out of the building! I went over to Union Station and into Lucy. Not 2 minutes later, I walked out with not one, but TWO handbags. Um, what? This IS a personal finance blog – you are still in the right place. Does it help that both were on sale and less than $40 combined? Or that one is tiny tiny and really more like a wallet that will be used in conjunction with the bigger one? In any case, I feel MUCH better now. Sometimes even the most prudent and frugal of us need a little retail therapy!

Now I’m off to play with my new purchases…

Now that I've seen your pretty Lucy purse, I think it was totally worth it! :)

Thanks, L! I am totally loving it myself. The other smaller one -- not so much. I bought it really to be a wallet for the bigger one but realized it was redundant. It may come in handy for traveling, though.
