You know that feeling when you are 9 years old, and you receive a gift and cannot wait for more than 3 seconds to use it? Well that is how I felt when my husband surprised me with this Kate Spade Beau Bag. I took out the stuffing, threw all my purse contents inside and off I went (around the apartment, sigh). The next morning I told him we had to go take outfit photos immediately so I could swing it around and enjoy it in the daytime. But when I went to throw on an outfit, I shied away from something too feminine and thought it would be a great contrast to keep the outfit a touch more masculine and edgy. So out came my DKNY coat with the moto sleeves (awesome), my faux leather leggings (more awesome), a silk blouse (necessary awesome) and my red pumps to take it off the sass meter completely. A red lip was the last piece of the puzzle because – duh – red pumps, red lips. Shouldn’t that saying be on a t-shirt or makeup bag or something?
