A college girl's guide to fashion
Besides having an addiction to jewelry, I also have another shopping addiction that I’m almost too embarrassed to admit to… And that addiction is buying purses. Seriously ask anyone, I can’t stop!
In fact, to show the extent of my addiction, I will let you in on a little secret: I bought a purse just a day ago. I tried to use all of my willpower to not hand over my credit card to the cashier, but in the end I couldn’t help myself! I always come up with some lame excuse, and this time I told myself that it was on sale… Thus, I just had to buy it. I’d be stupid if I didn’t!
Although the Urban Outfitters purse was a steal at just $9.99, that’s not the point. The point is I DON’T NEED ANOTHER PURSE. I have over 10 hanging on my closet door at home, so why would I need a new one?
Instead of feeding my addiction by going shopping, I have decided to overcome my problem in a healthful way, which is to browse the internet without getting out the credit card. I simply scroll through sites like forever21.com, and simply admire the purses… I can appreciate the art of fashion, can’t I?
Below, I’ve featured four of the cutest purses from five of my favorite stores: Modcloth, Forever 21, Lulu’s, H&M and Urban Outfitters. These stores are perfect when it comes to a college student’s budget, which is why I recommend that you check out their websites. In addition to reasonable prices, all of the stores I feature have a wide variety of styles when it comes to purses, so I hope that you will find at least one purse that fits your unique fashion sense!
For those of you who are torn on which bag you would like to buy most, the Urban Outfitters’s multi-colored sequin purse with the long strap is my favorite! It’s incredibly unique and coated in sparkles which is my favorite! Let’s just say that you won’t blend into the crowd with this purse… Which is a good thing!
I’m also partial to the turquoise Aztec-inspired purse that is from Forever 21, simply because I own it! I’ve found that it is the perfect school bag, as I can fit my laptop, folders, and two textbooks inside! Oh how I love practical purses…
The third and final purse that I would recommend buying is the Lulu’s purse that appears in the top right corner of the picture. Leopard print is definitely in right now, and I like how the purse just has the flap covered in this print so that it’s not overwhelming or cheap looking.
So there you have it! Feel free to take a gander at the purses below, but I must warn you: After seeing these purses, you may or may not become a purse shopaholic… Uh oh.
