My Park Collection

If you read the blogs or visit the parks, you've noticed the Dooney and Bourke purse collections.  They have all styles of them, celebrating 40 years of WDW, cruising, Mickey, Minnie, Princesses, Fairies, etc...
One of the more simple ones.. and one of my favorites

Some people love them, some hate them.  I like some of them, but I'm not willing to spend $200 on any purse, especially not one that wouldn't be used every day.  To me, these would be great to use in the parks, but not for every day use.

Luckily, I found a more modest version and my Park Purse.
Sorry I couldn't find a better picture!  This baby cost me (I think) $29.95 and I love it.  They offered it in white and blue, and for $30, I had few qualms purchasing a bag with comics all over it. Of course, it's been sitting in my closet since we got home, but that's okay.

Now, what about for inside the purse?  The D&B wristlets are under $50, and definitely more affordable, but than I'd be carrying a wallet that costs more than my purse, and that's just not my way.  Plus, I found anohter pattern I adore, but couldn't pull it off at my age (the ripe old age of 29).
Mickey plaid!  Luckily, Melissa had some adorable outfits for Piper in this plaid, but I just didn't think I could pull it off.  So, I spent (about) $15 on this wallet last June.  I started off using it on a regular basis, but it doesn't have all the compartments and zippers I like, so didn't last full time.

But, this is my park collection.  I love it, but I'm not ready to be All Disney, all the time... at least not wearing it on my sleeve!
