Women carry around a lot of stuff! Why do we need such big purses? I don’t know the answer (if you do, please share) but I’ve tried to downsize my purse and it just doesn’t work for me! I like the big open bag with the optional crossbody strap but must admit it gets frustrating sometimes digging around, your hand trying to grasp something that just keeps illuding you.
I don’t own a Louis Vuitton, Michael Kors or even a Coach bag as alas they are out of my price range. My current favourite purse is just a simple black bag from Forever 21. I’m not one to switch around purses either; basic black goes with everything.
Now that my daughter is grown up the contents of my purse have been downgraded; no more emergency snacks, soothers, sippy cups, entertainment items to keep busy minds out of trouble at restaurants and doctors’ offices, wet wipes or her favourite doll.
So here is what is currently taking up residence in my purse:
My black purse with side zipper detail, silver hardware, carry handles and crossbody strap. In the bag: earphones, straws (I hate drinking from a can or bottle), my sunglasses, gloves, baggie (need clear bag for flying containing; gum, tylenol, makeup compact, kleenex) handicap parking pass, bridge pass and wallet.
What kind of purse are you toting around these days? Do you have a favourite brand, colour, style? What keeps it full and heavy?
Be Pretty, Plus and Proud and not too bent over with the weight of your everyday luggage!
