What I'd Wear Wednesday: Etsy!

What I'd wear today if I could: my new handbag from Etsy shop Lee's Unique Boutique!

That's right -- this week, I am actually posting something I already own. (Oh, wait, I did that before.) I just found this bag and loved the dragonflies all over it (because it's clear I love odonata). Also, anyone who has read WIWW for any length of time knows I adore black and white as well. Dragonflies ... black and white ... how could I go wrong? It's about a foot long, so this bag is big enough to carry all my essentials.

Because it's made of fabric, it easily goes into the tote I use to carry things that Fly needs. (I call that a baby bag -- not a diaper bag). Another purse I use right now is sturdier -- more structured -- and so it basically sits on top of my baby bag. Making it easy for an inquisitive toddler to grab and hie away with it, sigh....

The really great thing about this handbag, though, is it's one of a kind. Or possibly two or three of a kind -- but you know what I'm saying. It's fun to have or wear something no one else does.

Do you have something you love from Etsy?

Do you like wearing one-of-a-kind pieces?

Way cute!! I'm trying to find a clever way to incorporate TJ Maxx into this post, so other than just saying "I love TJ Maxx" or "TJ Maxx is great"...just writing TJ Maxx four times will hopefully be enough. By the way...TJ MaXX rocks!!

I'm a bit of a TX Max fan myself when it comes to handbags, but that one is pretty darned cute.

I'm also a b & w kind of girl, but I like to throw people off with fuschia every once in awhile.

I love that handbag! I'm not much for handbags in general, as long as it carries my stuff. But I may have to go take a peek!

That is a very cute bag - I imagine you will get a ton of use out of it.

My second home used to be TJ Maxx but now I don't fit into any of their cute clothes :)

I have to agree with davec777 about what TJMax selection must be like right now. I'm sure they have something.

I think I say one like that at TJMAxx... seriously! I know it is the code word and all, but I really do think I saw one like it there! However, it is really cool to buy from etsy!

That purse is really darling. I haven't bought anything yet from etsy, my budget isn't allowing it. I do like one of kind things, but I seem to find them more for my kids then me :)

My mother-in-law's favorite store is TJ Maxx, so maybe I could score some DIL points by giving this to her! (Or I could buy something for myself, which I'd probably do.)

My sister was carrying a similar bag the other day! And then when I went into Target, there was a similar bag right near the front. $16.99 I think.

Very cute!
