My parents also want to keep things even-steven between my sister and I. Whatever I got on my birthday at a certain age, my sister will get it as well. When I was thirteen, I got a watch...Katie got one when she turned thirteen too. When I was sixteen, it was a beautiful opal ring, according to my birthstone...Katie got an aquamarine one. So of course she had to get the same present I got when I was eighteen: a Coach purse.
I love the purse I got for my birthday. It looks somewhat like this, but a little different...it's at college right now or I would take a picture of it. It's a perfect winter purse that adds a bright pop to the black coat I usually wear going out. I've used it to death these past few years.
But here is Katie's purse...and I'm in love with it.
The color, the size of it, the material...it just screams "summer" all over it. I especially love the multi-colored scarf...its so cute and it goes with it really well.
I might just have to steal this purse when I go study in Rome five weeks this summer...now I just have to convince her to let me borrow it...
