Purses, one of my great loves

There is a purse at Target I want. Yes, I know I have more purses than I can count on 2 hands, or maybe even 4, but I can't help it. It's my favorite accessory. This specific purse at Target is different though. It's not anything really special, but the fact that it hasn't gone on sale makes me want it so badly. It's not even expensive, but I can't justify the purchase. One of my besties and I go to Target ALL the time, just to see if it's finally on clearance. I can't even find a picture of it on the Target website, that's how elusive it is.

This is not THE purse. Just another I like.

One of my first purse memories was this German, cloth, cross body purse I had as a kid. It had designs of a Bavarian boy and girl on the front, in old fashioned German clothing. I loved it so much, I wonder where it is now. I can always remember my mom telling me to wear it across my chest and not just on my shoulder, because that's safer. While I've used traditional hand bags in recent years (many given to me by my mother, who has amazing taste in purses), I've gone back to cross body bags lately. Right now I'm on a mission to find the perfect one that's not too big, but will hold everything I need so that I don't have to take a carry on bag when I go to Germany next month. Something with Mary Poppins technology. It must also be gorgeous, in the perfect color that I'll only know when I see it, and be $15. I guess I'll be looking forever.
