THE CLEAVAGE CADDY: TURN YOUR BRA INTO A PURSE

Ladies, meet the purse that doubles as a bra. Yes, a bra-purse. You’re probably wondering–how and why? Well the caddy takes the items from your purse, organizes them, and slips into your bra. I’m wondering if the bigger your chest is, do you get to carry more items? And I mean would you really want to carry your entire purse in your bra? Well, would you actually want to carry ANYTHING from your purse in your bra?

This contraption makes me have flashbacks to when my Great Aunt would give me change for the vending machine out of her bra. I always prayed no one from school would turn the corner the minute she pulled her shirt to the side. And if the coins were slightly moist–I would feel just a little sick.

I sincerely hope that no Mother decides to wear this to parent teacher night in an effort to be hands free. That would be an instant kill to any social life. And as much as my husband would appreciate not having to carry my clutch during our date nights, I can only imagine his face if my chest lit up and started singing my latest iTunes download on my iPhone.

The Cleavage Caddy comes in many colors, or you can have one custom made. If anyone decides to buy this and try it out, please let me know. This is one review I would be very interested in reading!

Happy 4th of July!

Freedom has its life in the hearts, the actions, the spirit of men and so it must be daily earned and refreshed – else like a flower cut from its life-giving roots, it will wither and die.  Dwight D. Eisenhower
