I have a theory: Shopping is the female equivalent of hunting. You spend hours watching and waiting for that great deal to come along, and when you finally find your treasure, you have to pull the trigger on it. I find my most satisfying “hunting” experiences usually come when I’m shopping at secondhand stores. Finding that piece in your size for a fraction of the original price? There’s no better feeling.

During one of this month’s excursions to one of the local Omaha Goodwills, I stumbled upon this Michael Michael Kors bag for less than $10. I’d been searching for a summery, straw bag, but even with summer coming to a close and all the warm-weather merchandise headed for the clearance racks, I still wasn’t willing to shell out big bucks for a bag I’d only get a little use out of until next summer.

Enter the bag seen to the right.

To get the most out of my bag before the fall fashion season hits, I’ve been trying to carry it as much as possible. A bag this beautiful should take center stage, so I paired it with subdued summer classics: a chambray blouse (also found at Goodwill a few years ago), a cream, lace skirt, wedges, and gold accessories.

Next month, I’ll be sharing another Goodwill find of the month. I’m a personal-style blogger and update my blog daily with outfits and other inspirations, so stop by my blog and say hi! You can also see the original post where this Michael Michael Kors bag debuted by clicking here.
