A new purse is a girl’s best friend. The smell of new leather is enticing. There are so many colors, sizes, and brands to choose from. The sight of crazed woman rushing around everywhere trying to find the perfect purse is exhilarating. The price is not a concern; it is that special look that matters most.

I walk up and down every isle keeping my eyes pealed for the perfect purse. Reds, pinks, light blues, and greens always catch my eye. None of them matching up to the size or type of leather we are looking for. I find a pink purse that looks like what might be my perfect...
