Help Cami Find a Purse!

I've been looking for a new purse for a few weeks now - in stores, thrift shops, online, everywhere. I can't find one I like. I'm picky, I guess. Well - I know what I want...I just can't find it. Help me?

I want it to be big enough to have a water bottle in there - but not too big where I'll lose a water bottle.

Right now, my purse looks like this:

And it looks super cute on me, right?

I've used that purse every day for a year. (V got it for me for Christmas of 2010.)

Ideally, I'd like to spend less than $100...

HELP! I need a new one (bad!)...!


  1. Oh I feel ya! I am so picky when it comes to purses... I'm not sure what I'm picky about. I guess I'm just not a lover of purses so if I'm spending the money I better freakin' like it, haha! I like to look at Ross, TJ Max, those kind of places because they have cute purses at a discounted price!
    Good luck on your search!

  2. I am terrible about this! I will use my purse till falls apart, oh and I'm cheap. Target is about as good as it gets for this girl. I need to suck it up and drive the 30 minutes to the outlet malls and actually walk into a nice purse shop! Good luck? Do you do colors, or more neutrals?

  3. Oh, that'll be tough! I have a hard time purse shopping online. If I want a nice purse, I like to go to the outlet malls in Destin. They have a Coach outlet and a Dooney & Bourke outlet. But usually, I'm not super picky about my purses, so I just pick up something cheap from Target. =)

  4. You are just the cutest thing. :)

    And I'm WITH ya on this. I've been rotating between 3 purses that I already have for the past 2 years... I want a CUTE purse, but I just can't make myself spend a load of money on one!

  5. Honestly TJMaxx always does it for me. I find the most amazing brands for cheap. Also, Filene's Basement and Piperlime online is AWESOME! Good luck! Let us know what you find. xo

  6. I'm on the same hunt! Mine is a (fake) Marc Jacobs, but I super love it and the strap is about to fall off... after using it everyday for about 2 yrs! I've ordered and returned a ton. Found some cute ones on ideeli! ( you just gotta find the handbags!

  7. Cami! That's a great idea. I'd be happy to do it. I can do a guest post with my picks if you like. Email me if you want to discuss it further: xo
