I'm a lucky gal!

Just had to show you what DH and MIL went in together on and bought me for Christmas. DH actually remembered a conversation where I had mentioned looking for a cream handbag come spring as Angie always makes hers look so darned fab with everything.

So below are the pics of the gorgeous Danier Leather cream handbag they bought for me - with the most gorgeous floral lining to boot! It is the perfect larger satchel size that can be carried both on my arm or on my shoulder. It has just the right amount of pockets and a few fab zippered details.

I am going to be thrilled to bring this out for use come March/April and feel like about the luckiest gal going to be so loved. Frankly I'm just so amazed he even remembered the conversation!

    Why wait for spring? That is begging for a winter white outfit!

  • lyn* replied 7 years ago

    WOW. That bag is gorgeous. *going to see if it comes in different colours*

  • Tina replied 7 years ago

    Shannon, what thrills me most is your husband remembering and then using the information to pick out such a stylish and functional gift. He's a keeper for sure:-)
    Love the bag!!

  • shevia replied 7 years ago

    You have a very worthy DH Shannon! But I agree with Atlantia. Wear that beauty now!

  • Suz replied 7 years ago

    Your husband and MIL are so great to you! And you deserve it!!! What a lovely bag; you'll get lots of use from it.

  • Amy replied 7 years ago

    WOW!!! Gorgeous. You are indeed a lucky woman. And you totally deserve to be spoiled :)

  • Day Vies replied 7 years ago

    The bag is so you. I just love the sentiment this gift represents -- a husband that listens is worth is weight in gold.

  • Nicole D replied 7 years ago

    That's a really nice bag. I love the zipper details at the sides. Way to go, husband!

  • replied 7 years ago

    Oh yes, you are Shannon! Lovely spring bag. Your hubs is so good at doing gift-giving reconnaissance! (Wow, my spell checker didn't even light up with that, I can't believe I got it right!) If you have the right coat, you might wear it this winter, but I totally get wanting to save it for Spring. Mmmm!

    Gorgeous bag. And of course you are that loved!

  • rae replied 7 years ago

    What the what?? DH knows your style and remembers your fashion conversations? That is so cool... what a gorgeous bag!

  • Deborah replied 7 years ago

    Well your DH definitely gets the Husband of the month award! I'm just not sure I could totally trust mine with handbag selection:). This is such a stunning bag and so you! I'd break it out now;)

  • Ginkgo replied 7 years ago

    Your husband is amazing! And what a nice MIL too.

    The bag has it all -- modern and classic with a twist; can't wait to see you out and about with it.

  • Aziraphale replied 7 years ago

    Very nice! I'm certain you deserve it. :-)

  • Beth Ann replied 7 years ago

    What a thoughtful and gorgeous gift. You'll make good use of this bag, I'm sure.

    I love this shape of bag -- structured, but ladylike, and large enough to be practical without breaking your back!

  • Ruby Tuesday replied 7 years ago

    You lucky duck!!!! Your husband and Mother in Law have a real talent that is for certain (remembering the lucite clutch).

  • Jjsloane replied 7 years ago

    What a gorgeous bag and you are indeed a lucky woman. Wear it well!

  • ManidipaM replied 7 years ago

    That is gorgeous! Lucky lady, and none more deserving (clearly, what goes around, comes around). And just in time to get you over the disappointment of the navy suit.

  • Transcona Shannon replied 7 years ago

    Wow Claire - fab spelling skills girl!

    Manidipa - what navy suit??? (lol)

    Hmmmm....it is tempting to break it out now and it would look lovely with my citron puffer but I'm going to save it for spring as per my original thinking. Plus it will be like getting a gift all over again when I start to use it!

  • Angie replied 7 years ago

    KILLER new bag!

    You are a lucky and deserving lass.

  • nancylee replied 7 years ago

    Simply gorgeous! Enjoy, Shannon!

  • Claudia replied 7 years ago

    What a great handbag.

    You already know that I think your guy is your greatest gift of all!

  • BethL replied 7 years ago

    What a beauty! Enjoy it, and wear it well, Shannon. Yay, hubs! And so nice of your MIL to go in on it with him - that must feel nice after all the difficulties.

  • Isabel replied 7 years ago

    How wonderful !! I LOVE what a great relationship you have with your MIL. It is such a testament for you son.

  • lyn67 replied 7 years ago

    Yesss, you really are!:-) Hubby is a treasure-we knew already-, and MIL seems to make an effort to accept your dedication to fashion as a hobby, isn't it? Great news, and bag is fabulicious!:-)

  • Zapotee replied 7 years ago

    Gorgeous bag for a gorgeous gal.
    I am glad your family is so supportive of your hobby.

  • Lyn D. replied 7 years ago

    FAB Bag!
    I thrifted an off-white slouchy one and used it alot recently-goes with everything.
    It is especially nice when D.H. remembers something you like and acts on it!

  • CocoLion replied 7 years ago

    Very pretty semi-structured bag. Someone probably already said this, but it would go great with your cream sweater. Now.

  • morethanbeige replied 7 years ago

    Beautiful bag! (And also lovely hubs and MIL.)

  • Raisin replied 7 years ago

    They certainly have great taste! And a great memory, kudos to your DH!
