Love … or not? 2016’s Princess Half Marathon Dooney & Bourke

*Sigh* I just love these!

I think.

Maybe I don’t.

I don’t know.

I’m on the fence. The black background … if it really is black … is nice and the print is adorable, but the pesky, nagging, buzzkill of a voice that pokes at my confidence on more occasions than I’d like to confess is questioning whether or not this is a purse I should be carrying as a nearly 47 year old. Which is wrong. I know that. But still. Buzzkill can really be a pesky little bugger.

Besides. I have the Disneyland Dumbo Double Dare to pay for next Tuesday … seeing as how I messed up yesterday during early registration for annual passholders by hitting back instead of continue, which bumped me out. Grr.

It’s still a cute bag, though. One I’ll most likely fall head over heels in love with after seeing it in person.

If only those Powerball tickets were winners…

    You’re funny! Boy, you hit the nail on the head… I LOVE this bag as well but I’m 44 years old and asking myself, “Can I really pull this off?” but you know what?? Who cares! I’m doing it! Unfortunately, I can only find it after market for double the cost but it’s too stinkin’ cute to pass up! I have 2 little girls; 8yrs and 5 yrs and they will think I’m super cool so that’s good enough for me! (I think you should get it too!) 🙂

    Ugh, sorry you had to pay double for it but congrats for buying that bag and using it proudly! Once I saw it in person at the expo, it ended up being A LOT cuter in person. I was *thisclose* to buying one, but then I saw another gal carrying a black Runway Princess tote. It’s not race related but so adorable plus it would coordinate nicely with my 2015 PHM satchel. I’m hoping they’ll have them in Disneyland during the Tinkerbell Half Weekend!

    As for those Tink D&B’s … they’re a bit too bold for me. 😉

    Thanks for stopping by! 🙂

    Well….. I am 60 and I bought it!. I get fantastic comments all the time and little girls look twice and come over to check it out. We are all princesses no matter the age.

    So true! And awesome, way to rock your princess bag! The print looked SO MUCH BETTER in person and I was thinking about the tote, but it wasn’t big enough for me. I carry a lot of stuff! Plus I’ve been having my eye on the Princess Runway black totes for a while now. Later on, I did see some gals with the letter carriers and had a twinge of regret – they were a nice size, but I’d be too paranoid about getting them dirty to use as a park bag and I rarely use my other past PHM ones. More money for me to spend later!

    Thanks for stopping by and have a great 4th of July! 🙂
