Today's Everyday Fashion: The Statement Purse


More often than not I buy neutral purses that will blend in with whatever I'm wearing. But this purse is the total opposite; it's like a work of art that you carry around on your arm. It sat in my cart for almost 2 months before I caved in and ordered it. It's so fun with the color blocking and feathers, but how practical is a statement purse, really? I often wear statement necklaces because the focus of your outfit is always visible (even when you're sitting at dinner, for example), but a purse is different because you don't always have it with you. Have you ever bought a statement purse? Did it wind up being worth the splurge?
