Valentines Gifts From Boyfriends Past....

If you follow my blog at all, you know two of my favourite things are thrift store shopping and nail polish. But I also LOVE LOVE LOVE purses. I wish I could afford to indulge this passion a bit more, but I unfortunately dont like cheap bags! Its not that I care about the label. I just like and appreciate workmanship, smooshy leather, and fashion forward pieces. Not things usually found on lower end bags. My collection mainly consists of  Matt & Nat bags ( A Candian designer I love that has reasonably priced bags in the 300 dollar range). I have one Georgio Armani leather bag and a vintage Ferragamo purse both of which I love. But today I got to bring a new bag into my collection!

Isn't she lovely? A smooshy, slouchy turquoise lambskin Italian bag  with silver hardware! A co worker of mine got it as a valentines day gift from her boyfriend last year and they are no longer together. It has too many memories and she therefore will not wear it any longer. So it has become mine with the understanding, I wont wear it around her!!

I was there when he originally bought it for her and have been stalking it online ever since! So these two pages can now leave my saved pages online! YAY!!

What about you? Will you wear a gift from an ex? Keep it but not wear it? Or like Amy, get rid of it?


  1. Gorgeous! Congrats on the great snag :)

  2. I will keep a gift from an ex, absolutely! I will wear it, too. A gift is a gift, doesn't matter who its from in my opinion. Once it comes to my possession, it is mine and if I like it, I will wear/use it. Happy day for you to get a bag gorgeous bag for FREE though :D
