This post was inspired by one of Megan's recent posts. I kind of love seeing what is inside everyone's handbags. Is that weird? Anyway, seeing Megan's bag made me realize that my purse is a shameful, sloppy abyss of crumpled receipts and fruit snacks. It made me really wish I had a nice handbag to be proud of. Instead mine is something I throw over my shoulder in a rush and pray that there's an extra diaper in it.
I've never been much an "arm candy" kind of girl. I could never justify spending $500 on something that holds sunglasses and keys. For a purse, I have seen people throwing down cash that would easily buy a new camera lens or a top brand bike. On a family budget, an expensive purse is in the $60 range and that thing better last a year.
Lately, I've been thinking that it's about time that I carry around a nice purse. Nothing too fancy or expensive. Something functional and stylish. Something that says something about who I am and will match most of my every day looks. It only needs to big enough to hold a few diapers, a wallet and a book.
A few of the bags I found...
#2 and #3 are my favorite. Believe it or not, #3 is from Anthropologie and only $98. I want.
What kind of purse do you carry? Is it more for function or fashion?
