As women, we carry purses.  Purses are a great accessory and we love to find the perfect purse.  They could be quirky purses, they could be really expensive purses, they could be vintage purses, but no matter what kind of purse that's carried we still love it.  Big or little our purses are by our side.  Coming up this Friday, the Laura Bush Institute for Women's Health is having their annual Power of the Purse.

The Power of the Purse is a luncheon and what goes on at this luncheon is something amazing.  You'll have your chance to win or purchase some really awesome purses.  Some of these purses will be available in a Silent Auction, other purses you will be able to purchase.  However, this event isn't only about the purses.  The Power of the Purse has an amazing guest speaker.
