What’s in your purse series week fifty six

This week’s What’s in Your Purse Series purse is from Cora.  You’re the best Cora!
– P.S. you guys, I need more purses.  If you love this series and want more of it, submit your purse.  I only have a couple purses left in the lineup, I’m totally dried up in my stash.  It’s time to get a move on.  If you want to submit your purse to the series take two photos of your purse {nice, clean non-blurry ones} one of the outside, one of the inside, along with a listing of the contents to allisonATpetitelefantDOTcom.

  1. Kalli :

    Love the bag, looking for a nice, camel colored one meself.

    Also, those tea bags look a bit like condoms. WHAT? IT’S TRUE.

    • Cora :

      What can I say? I like to drink my tea safe.

      • Allison :

        Cora, you’re killing me here.

  2. Qui :

    love the leather purse.

    • Allison :

      I had to leave the site asap, because I want every purse in the line.

  3. Heather B. :

    I will email you a photo of my purse the second my USB doohicky arrives.

  4. Jessica Samson :

    Funny, my purse is quite similar to yours; I think I recognized the Occitane lip balm :p
    You should try those from ASILiI (http://www.asiliscosmetics.com). It’s pure and unrefined shea butter. The brand has also developed shea butter scented balms. My favorite one is basil ;-)
