My first tag!

I was tagged by the lovely Preppy 101 over the weekend. Her blog is one of my favorites and she is a sweetheart (I wish she had been one of my teachers!), so if you're not already reading her blog, just scoot on over there and check it out.The tag is this:

1. Post a picture of the bag/purse/handbag/pocketbook that you are carrying! Now, don't you even think about going back there to your closet and getting that cute little clutch that you carried before you had children or the last time you went out.

2. Tell us how much it cost! I know what you are thinking - a Southern Belle neva discusses matters of money, darlin'. Well, yes, but today we are gonna break that rule and tell! Yes, tell how much it cost. We won't judge! This is for entertainment purposes only. And if there is a story that goes along with this purse, tell it.

3. Tag some other girls. It will be fun to see what everybody else posts :-)

Okay, here's mine:

(Sorry for the awkward picture...I cant find the usb cable to my camera, so I took this on my bberry in the car.)

I am in love with this purse. She is crocodile (if that's wrong, baby, i don't want to be right) with gold hardware and silk lining. Banana Republic limited edition. I carry her everywhere.

I think the bag was around $400, but I'm not 100% sure. She was a Christmas gift from my mama.

The only story is that my daddy calls this my Mary Poppins bag. She is HUGE and I have ton of stuff in there (Blackberry, two wallets, a clutch, cell phone, tissues, work papers, 6 lipglosses....the list goes on and on). Everytime I'm rifling through her to find something, my dad says he expects me to pull out a lamp at any moment. I prefer to think she's Mary Poppins-esque because she's practically perfect in every way :)

It was also a special Christmas present because my mother is the most frugal woman alive. I doubt she's ever paid more than 50 bucks for a purse and she thinks my shopping habits are downright sinful. The fact that she actually shelled out the dough for this purse meant so much to me, because it is SO not like her to spend money on anything like this!

Now I tag:

Sorry for only tagging two people, but I don't want to exhaust my pool of followers with my first tag!

Happy Tuesday!
