.@VickiBatman - author Marianne Rice w a bag of Mommy Love #MFRWorg #RLFblog #fashion

Handbag Monday
welcomes author, Marianne Rice, who writes contemporary romances set in small New England towns. When she's not writing, Marianne spends her time buying shoes, eating chocolate, chauffeuring her herd of children, and when there's time, relaxing with fancy drinks and a great read.

 
I have to admit, I’m more of a shoe slut than a handbag ho. However, now that my children no longer require me to carry around snacks, wipes, and diapers, I’ve been able to invest in some Mommy Love. I only have one awesome handbag…my Coach purse. It’s pretty, simple and holds everything I need. Inside my lovely purse I have a snakeskin Coach wallet, four different flavored tubes of Chapstick, a bottle of Advil and a not-so-secret stash of chocolate and mints, with just enough room for my Kindle. Because a girl must always be prepared.

 

He’s got to make the riskiest play of his life to get her to fall in love again …

oh my- what a dilemma a Shoe Slut or a Handbag Ho - I remember the days when one required the other - our handbags had to match our shoes. It would take searching all over manhattan for my grandmother to find the right purse to match. My mom too.

Looking forward to checking out your books!

Marianne Rice said...

Yes, Chris, it's quite the dilemma...matching bag and shoes? I keep my handbag black and like to add a burst of color with my shoes.

vicki batman said...

Hi, Marianne, and I do the opposite. Handbags are lively and shoes are basics, due to small feet and limited shoe options.

Thank you for coming today!

Mrs. Chamoff said...

She's a Shoe Slut for sure! Knowing her for many, many, many years I'm still waiting for her to have to run in the rain (or this year-SNOW) with any of the mutltiple dozens of shoes she has! ~norriechamoff

Vicki,
Thankfully my feet were made to wear heels. I don't know what I would do if I had hard to fit feet (well, I guess I'd have a hoard of handbags like you!)

Marianne Rice said...

Norrie,
Workin' the heels today. And they match my handbag :-)

Michelle Libby said...

I guess that if you have to have a purse, a Coach one is a solid choice. I am a bag ho and I like to spread it around changing from purse to purse, bag to bag.
Thanks for sharing.
Cheers.

Michelle

Hi, Norrie, thank you for stopping by today and come back soon. So many people love love love shoes. I keep thinking my day will come. lol

Hi, Michelle! I spread my love around. In fact, I'm sharing next week my new fav. teeheeheee

Marianne Rice said...

Michelle and Vicki,
I find it a lot of work to change from purse to purse. Do you switch with the seasons, outfits, moods?

Curious minds...not that I need another collection. There isn't room in my closet. And I have a large closet.

Susan Vaughan said...

I too am a handbag ho. Big, little, colorful, black, I love 'em all. My current fad is for Baggallini bags. Mmm, I think the count is at 6, all sizes.

Marianne Rice said...

Susan,
You're not helping. Now I need to check out Baggallini bags. My husband is not going to be happy with you. Or me.

vicki batman said...

Its easy to change because i dont carry tons of stuff, just what i need

vicki batman said...

Hi, susan: baggalini is popular. I dont have any, but have friends who do

Luanna Stewart said...

Coach does make some mighty fine handbags. I still have my first one, a gift from hubby in the late '80's. That was when they were very basic and unadorned. Now I'm going to check out Baggallini, because Susan does have lovely purses, hehe.

vicki batman said...

Hi, Luanna! If you get a new one, let me know and we'll show off on the blog!!!

Marianne Rice said...

Luanna,
I'm impressed that the hubby knew what a purse was...and a Coach at that! Last year for my *ahem* birthday my girlfriends took me away skiing for the weekend. My very practical husband bought me a ski helmet.

Florence Cronin said...

Marianne ... what an image ... a shoe slut or a bag ho. Like some, I used to need them to match. But then my crooked feet needed more support and my bags got bigger and more functional.

Love the feel of False Start :)

Marianne Rice said...

Hi Florence,
Sometimes matching is over-rated!

vicki batman said...

Hi, Marianne! I love how practical your hubby was.

Angela Adams said...

Love that handbag, Marianne!

Marianne Rice said...

Thanks, Angela. It was an awesome Christmas splurge. I feel...grown up now :-)
