The bag that witnessed the broken two drink rule

The two drink rule was created out of vanity. I was trying to get rid of my impending muffin top, there was no regard for my liver's feelings. But I didn't want my social life to to take off with the muffin top, so I decided that I would still go to the bars, but only have two (doctor recommended) alcoholic drinks a night. Once those were enjoyed, I would secretly switch to tonic water and lime. The secrecy is necessary, not because I feel silly about my rule, but because no one wants to hang out with a smug sober who drinks responsibly and doesn't over-indulge. For the past couple of weeks everything was going according to plan, everybody continued to enjoy my company, (except for my muffin top that was shrinking now that I won't feed it) and I had even made a new friend out of my liver.

However, this Angela Adams bag witnessed my fall from grace last Friday night when my two drink rule was broken during a ladies' night. My friend paired the turquoise and brown cloth clutch with a brown summer dress like this one from Velvet Torch, a gold bangle bracelet and gold sandals.
