Sisterhood of the Traveling Purse
Do you have a particular item of clothing or a favorite accessory that has stories to tell?
This is my best friend, Caroline, a Chicago native and vintage store extraordinaire who happens to be holding that one Turner/Kraft story-collecting piece. We picked this up during my last visit in September (a beautiful time to visit Chicago by the way). We both loved it, opted to make a joint purchase, and have decided to share it. I will keep it for a few months, documenting the trips it takes, the events it attends, and the people it meets. I will then mail it to her, with said synopsis in tow, and she will do the same.
It is our garden gnome. We are Blake Lively and Alexis Bledel.
Oh, the funny, interesting, and maybe even infamous stories I hope this little beaded purse will have to tell.
