Wedge of Watermelon

It's no secret that I love statement purses. You know, the kind that have become synonymous with brands like Kate Spade. Unfortunately, most of Kate Spade's statement type bags that take the form of camels, cameras or oranges are hundreds of dollars, which is a lot for just a "fun" bag made of straw. So imagine my delight when I came across this whimsical watermelon bag from SheIn for only $16! In addition to watermelons, they also have a veritable fruit salad of other bags including a pineapple bag, an orange bag and a banana bag!

I wore this bag to an eye appointment and it was a huge hit with both the doctor and the staff there. I took these photos after my appointment and I think I can just make out a trace of a line going across my forehead that was caused from inserting my face into that machine that holds the lenses that you look through at the optometrist's office. It felt like I was there for hours looking at the letters that they project up on the wall! Luckily, everything checked out with my eyes so I am able to gaze upon the cuteness of my watermelon purse with complete clarity!
