The Basics

Project:Purse and Boots
A tour of an outrageously tacky purse to inspire women to take a night for themselves as way to raise money for The American Stroke Association. Each stop The Purse makes earns money by way of pledges.

How it Works:
Sign up for a Purse Party and invite your best friends to a Women’s Night out. Take pictures. Send them to me. Mail the purse to its next destination.

Or be a Donor!
The raising of the funds comes from businesses who are happy to support a bunch of women raising awareness for stroke preventions and raising money for the ASA.

Dress Up:
Get out your highest heels. Don’t like heels? Grab a feather boa. Don your loudest jewelry and your blingiest bling. The Purse sets the bar on trashy pretty high. DON’T GET OUTDONE BY A HANDBAG!

Make Noise:
Blog and tweet  your Purse Party. You have to Out-Loud the Purse!

Do these stripes clash with my…umm…stripes?

My mother told me this would happen.

I have GOT to stop trying to meet guys in bars.

A Girl’s Gotta Do what a Girl’s Gotta Do.

87,000

That is the number of Twitter impressions a group of frenzied and dedicated women created on Wednesday night during the First Annual Ever PPNB Tweet-A-Thon.

We raised over $600 in ONE HOUR.

Here are a few samples…

And Jenny McCarthy, bless her beautiful blond self, re-tweeted us.

I couldn’t count the Re-Tweets. They were zooming through my feed at a million miles an hour.

This one cracked me up. Also, I got to meet Poppy IN PERSON. It was a whirlwind romantic meet-up in an airport security line. All the best torrid affairs start this way.

The suggestions got a little, well, suggestive. People were offering up my lingerie secrets.

This lovely lady was one of the reasons the project came to me. I was with her (metaphorically) when this happened and my heart broke for her.

This one made me sing. “You give me Fever…”

I’ll be frank. There are times when I’m writing letters, or juggling Pursey Galore’s schedule, or trying to tweet updates and…and…it’s a lot. And it’s very tiring.

And then one hour surrounded by the amazing power of my friends who all believe in this cause and I’m am recharged and ready to bang on MORE doors and ask for MORE money.

Because you are all just that damned amazing.

Something’s Wrong With My Glasses

Because Pursey Galore understands that less is NOT more. More is more!

And more is goooooooooooood.

It’s a PEACE sign!

After this photo, Pursey Galore is investigated by the Wine Country Counter-Gang Task force.

Cause a Purse Needs A Good Blow-Out, Too.

And mind the highlights, dahling. It takes AGES to get that look.

Can I Get A Whitening, Too?


Most people don’t know that it takes a special polish to get that sparkle on. It’s just not easy being an icon.

The Most Glorious Photograph Ever.

This is Leslie’s day in Manitou Springs.

This makes me happy in ways I cannot express.

So just look at the picture.

I’ll shut up now.
