Let’s talk about purses.
I’m kind of looking for one. You see, I think I’m probably unique in that I don’t like to shop for that perfect purse. (I’d rather find one that I really like and stick with it until it is worn out!)
I know I bought myself at least one new purse in the past 10 years…and I also received a few as gifts.
I’ve bought some at thrift stores.
Sadly, the purse that I bought new lasted for a shorter time than some of the used ones I’ve purchased.
For a number of years, I was stuck with a diaper bag. It had to be big enough to hold everything I might possibly need for the next how many hours. I was glad to be able to graduate to a purse again. And then I discovered that I really didn’t know what I really want.
Not too big, because then it feels like a diaper bag.
Not too small, because, well, I am still a mom, and I need to be able to cart along all kinds of paraphernalia.
I need to be able to keep it relatively organized, or else I will find myself wasting too much time looking for what I really need. Like my keys, that are always at the bottom.
I’d like to have something that coordinates well with various colors or outfits, because I really don’t like to be changing purses all the time.
Which brings me to a final point. I need something that will LAST!
I’ve also discovered that I kind of like having a long enough strap to wear it cross-body style. That way, when I’m shopping alone, it stays in place, and isn’t always falling off my shoulder.
Please tell me where to find the perfect purse! 🙂 What should I get? Tips, pros, or cons?
Tell me about yours!
I must add, though, I keep salivating over this website. I have a feeling that this might be where I’ll get my next good purse…if I could ever decide WHICH one to get. 🙂
