the best 18 dollars i've ever spent.

i'm hoping this title perked your attention. (it may be a slight exaggeration, but still...)

i recently spent the day with my mom and quickly noticed her purse. "that's so cute!" i said, "where's it from?" to my delight, she replied, "wal mart." i gotta tell you, this is not what i expected her to say. (it looked like it was from a boutique or department store).

her purse was adorable, just the right size, and had a silk scarf tied around it. she told me she just picked it up a few weeks ago, so we made a mad dash to the nearest wal mart and picked one up for yours truly! 

the purse is actually called "the umbrella tote" if you happen to look for it at the wal mart nearest you. (it comes with a free umbrella attached! bonus!) and, in case you haven't guessed yet, it was priced just right at $18.00.   

here are a few reasons why i love it...

one---> the material is "wipeable."
two---> you can change out the scarves depending on your outfit or your mood.
three---> it stands up on it's own. (no one likes a floppy purse.)
four---> it has organizational compartments inside.
five--->it's not too big, not too small.

i'm a huge scarf fan (most of them are thrifted!) i am having so much fun switching out the scarves.
here are three different ways to tie them depending on the length:

sidenote: my mom actually bought me this purse for my birthday. but the title "the best 18 dollars my mom ever spent" sounded cheesy.

let me know if you head out to wal mart and search for this treasure! :)
