thredUP Challenge, Part 3 // PLUS a chicken purse giveaway?!

Introducing... the dumbest thing I own! 


This is Chicken Purse. I was walking down South Congress, fresh from a haircut, when I spied this ridiculous thing in a shop window. It's been well documented that I have a weakness for animal jewelry and clothing that sports an animal motif, so naturally a rubber chicken purse in a shop window was a siren's song, calling my name. 

I tried to sport Chicken Purse with my thredUP Challenge #3 outfit:

DATE: 7 August 2014 // OCCASION: errands
CHICKEN PURSE: Tesoros // TOP: Vince Camuto c/o thredUP // JEANS: Paige Premium Denim via Nordstrom Rack (USA) // SUNGLASSES: c/o Converse // SHOES: TOMS // NECKLACE: Jen Loves Kev

However, in many ways Chicken Purse reminds me of my first major girlhood crush on a kid named Todd. I wanted it, I had to have it, I liked the look of it, it delighted me, but once it actually became mine, I didn't appreciate it as much as I did pre-acquisition. Todd is probably with someone who loves and appreciates him very much now, so isn't it only fair that Chicken Purse has the same fate?! Won't you love him?  

Let's Rafflecopter this thing! If you really want to win, I've provided a creative way to amp up your chances at being united with your one true Chicken Purse love. 

Winner will be announced a week from tomorrow. Optional rose ceremony to follow. 


That chicken purse is my soul mate. Also, I’ve been looking for something to keep my chicken in. Especially when I’m shopping.
