There aren’t many things I love about working in the retail industry. People return items they purchased ten years ago and wore down until it was totally unrecognizable; some get mad when you don’t say hello immediately; some get mad when you say hello. The list goes on. However, I will say that working in retail has turned me into a shopper for better or for worse. I won’t blow an entire paycheck on a new pair of shoes, but I have learned that a lot more people recognize someone’s sense of style than I previously thought. You can highlight your serious side, your playful personality, or your favorite decade all through your wardrobe. While I may have to add a few more conservative pieces to my closet now that I am about to begin law school, I do tend to gravitate towards a style that is 1/3 fun, 1/3 5 year-old, and 1/3 classic. With that comes my favorite coin purse in the shape of a cupcake.
Although the cupcake craze has died down, I am still a firm believer that cupcakes are exciting, delicious, and colorfully fun. A few years ago, I picked up this cupcake coin purse from Kate Spade. It is just big enough to hold my ID and cards, some cash, lipstick, and a compact mirror. In other words, perfect for when you have a pocket in which to stash your phone and don’t want to carry much more. It is no longer available on Kate Spade, but there are some other fun styles from her website, including this one that I’ve attached here. Additionally, I found the same bag in other sizes attached here and here. I’m ready to buy all three to add to my collection now!
