My First "Grown-Up" Bag

I've had the same purse since seventh grade (we're going on six years here!) because it's convenient and goes with most anything, however it is starting to show its age, and it is a very casual bag that probably wouldn't be the best to bring to things like job interviews. Now that I'm in college, and am technically an adult (what?!), I figured it would be a good idea to get a new bag that is a little more "grown-up" looking!
I was looking at some sales over Black Friday to see if I could get a good deal anywhere, and Ted Baker was having a really good sale on bags, so I decided to order one! I worked this past summer, and will be getting another job soon, so I had some money saved up that I was willing to spend a little bit of.

 As soon as I got the package in the mail, I pulled out my camera and took pictures as I unpacked it. You could say I was just a little bit excited.

 My first look at it in person! It's called the Petra, and is considered a small tote bag.

 Here's a better picture of it out of the box - I am in love! I thought it would be a bit bigger in person, but I actually really like the size because it'll keep me from hoarding around things I don't need in my purse!

A closer look at the bow!

I'm really glad that I ordered this, and relieved that it finally made it to my house! I ordered it on Black Friday (November 28th), and it just now made it here today! It was definitely worth the wait, though. I'm not sure if I'll just be using this bag for special occasions, or to places where I know I won't have to set it down anywhere, or if I'll use it for everyday purposes. We shall see!

What kind of bags do you like?

Thank you so much for reading (and happy Blogmas Day 2!), and I hope you have a wonderful day! :)
