That Time I Won a Contest, Part Three.

Confessional time: Remember that awesome red LV Epi Speedy of mine? I loved that bag a lot but sold it a while ago because I needed the money more than I needed the bag and, honestly, I hadn't been carrying it as much. I've always kind of missed having an epi leather bag, though, so the rest of my Poshmark prize credit bought me a not-quite-vintage Epi Alma PM:

It's more of a lady bag than the speedy and it's smaller, but I carry less stuff around these days. It's just the right size for a wallet, sunglasses, makeup bag and my kindle. And oh, it's so satisfying! Something about having a really structured handbag just sparks all kinds of joy. I probably wouldn't have spent my own money on one, at least not right now, but it was totally worth blowing my contest winnings on something like this.

The dome satchel is pretty timeless but you don't have to spend a ton of money to get something similar to an Alma. At TJ Maxx I found this sleek black dome satchel and this Kate Spade satchel is super nice and quite similar. For well under $100 Aldo has a good looking version and hell, even Target has a version! I'm telling you, this is a classic.

And that's it! The Poshmark contest credit is gone. If you missed it, here's part one and part two.
