What memories do you treasure?

One of my new favorite sites, Matchbook Magazine, posed a question on twitter (@matchbookmag) today that got me thinking.

What's your most treasured handbag?

I immediately knew what my answer would be...the Dooney & Bourke Essex bag. I had a bag just like the one below in the '90s. I lusted after this bag for months, dragging my mom and grandma to the Dooney counter at Dillards every Saturday when we went to the mall. I know my mom and grandma thought it was too expensive for a high school student to carry, but I had expensive taste and was a bit fixated.


I had a job at Taco Bell at the time. It was my first entry into the workforce, and that Dooney was the first thing I ever remember saving up to purchase. A bag that cost over $200 equates to a lot of tacos. I always have had a soft spot for handbags.

I don't have the bag any longer, but it will always hold a special place in my memories. So, do you have a "most treasured" handbag? Be sure to head on over to Matchbook Mag and let them know.
