purse-onal decisions

hello, friends.
meet my ex. my ex-purse.
we had a long relationship together. over two years, to be exact. i've never been the type to be a purse snob. i don't care about brand names when it comes to purses. i just like it to be versatile and easy to use. and it was, this purse of mine. however, after two long years, it was time to say goodbye. so i made my purse-onal decision. we needed to break up.
sooo, say hello to my beautiful new purse! i love it so much.
so this is a purse i recently got from asos! i really do love it. it's gorgeous, and classic. i love the color and the scallops! it's a good size, there's a zip pocket inside, as well as a cellphone pocket. not gonna lie- my old purse had TONS of compartments, which was handy... but honestly, random junk ended up in there, like a gangle of bobby pins and gum wrappers and old receipts. so this purse keeps me nice and tidy, since it's not super big. my old purse was slouchy, but this once stands on its own, which is great as well! in the end, definitely an upgrade, i'd say! haha
shirt: asos (sold out - similar here)
purse: asos (exact, option!)
skirt: target (old - similar here)
shoes: c/o lulu's (similar)

oh- and by the way, if you're wondering why i have changed my blog name.... AGAIN......... well, after getting more into blogging and starting to work with more brands than i have been, it just felt right to go back to what my blog was "known" as... over half of the searches i get include some form of "rachel sayumi", so it just felt good to stick with it. also, i feel that "rachel sayumi" was more unique... right after i changed my blog name to "mr jp & me", i started to find tons (and i mean TONS) of other blogs whose names were some form of "mr. x and me" or something like that. i wanted to stand out a little more. and hey, change is good, right? with the direction i want to take my blog, i felt it was a necessary step to take. so, there. you got a dose of my purse-onal decision and my personal decision ;)

have a fantaaaastic monday!

Love the blog name change, it IS you! BTW- I often get traffic from people googling "rachel sayumi", so now it'll be easier for them to find you. :)

Love that bag! You have a turquoise one too right?! So lucky! You look gorgeous. :)

Rachel said...

I think having a unique blog name is really helpful for assisting your readers in remembering your blog! I'm so not a purse girl. I've had my current purse for 2 and a half years now and no intentions on changing any time soon! Your new one looks cute and practical!

There is a purse at work that I've been eyeing that is gorgeous, blue, and scalloped. The only problem is that is so darn tiny - I have to much junk. :P This one is adorable! Great choice (and blog name)!

Abigail said...

Jessi said...

Gah it's a gorgeous purse! The scalloped edging is what gets me! Too cute. I'm the same way, I just have a small leather purse I carry everywhere, I've never been into brand names or having a million different bags. Really love your skirt too! :)
