My obsession with Accessories.

This is going to come as a huge surprise to, uh, none of you.

I like purses. Shoes too, of course, but today we're going to focus on purses.

I adore them. I have an every growing collection of bags in my closet and I can't get enough of them. The saddest moment in my life was when my dog ate my Betsey Johnson bag. I cried. (Don't judge me, it was an awesome bag.)

But as much as I love bags, I very rarely allow myself to buy anything that's not 100% functional. I need to hold of a lot of crap in my bags. Like, a lot. On any given day I have my camera, phone, wallet, makeup bag (which really only carries powder and lipglosses because I cannot possibly bring all my makeup with me), a book, my calender, my glasses and so on.

So I always end up buying bags like this.

It's not a bad bag. In fact, I love it. It was less than ten bucks, holds everything I need it to hold and doesn't show the grit and grime of commuting .

And while I really do appreciate having a nice, sturdy and dependable bag that holds everything under the sun... sometimes I just want something pretty. Pretty and dainty and girly.

That is why I'm writing this post, after all. Because a very amazing woman makes very amazing bags and it is my goal to own one. In celebration of launching her blog for her etsy shop, Julie of Julie Vision Designs is offering a custom clutch giveaway.

Her bags are amazing. I've been drooling over this one for ages. I'm also planning on having her create a bag (or two) from the dress I wore in my mother's wedding. I'm sure as hell not going to fit into that dress again and lacy beaded dresses from the 90's should have a second life.

In conclusion, I'm begging Julie to ignore the rules of picking at random. Remember how much fun we had discussing dysfunctional families over coffee? Don't you want to give me my very own pretty bag to have and to hold and love when my family is too insane to love me back?!
