I thrifted this black purse at Plato’s Closet, this consignment store that just opened near me. I’m glad to see these stores popping up and giving Buffalo Exchange some competition! They stocked up with some great items, and I found this awesome large black purse! It’s bigger than what I usually carry, but it holds my dslr camera for those days when I want to walk around town. Speaking of walking, the Anatolian Culture & Food Festival is coming up this weekend, and it’s going to be right here in Costa Mesa! I’ve already purchased my tickets on Groupon, and am super excited to see what they are going to showcase this year. I plan on walking through as much of the festival in two days. I’ve never been to the festival, but in November of last year, I went to Turkey and fell in love with the country. We visited Istanbul, Cappadocia, and then Selcuk. I’m so happy to hear that they are building a Grand Bazaar and the Blue Mosque here at the festival!! So please check out that site and keep this festival going!!
