what's in your purse week 82

My purse is a basic black bag that my husband bought me about 5 years ago.  The brand is Longchamp and it has held up amazingly.

What’s in it? Until a few minutes ago, I had no idea.

  1. Melissa K. in Nebraska :

    I’m impressed that some husbands buy their wives purses. And they use them. My BF’s head would probably pop off from trying to decide which purse for me. (Not that I’m finicky or anything.)

    • Allison :

      Ha! I don’t think my husband has ever tried it. That would be like me shopping for him. Not going to happen.
