I call it a purse. Some people call it a handbag. Others call it a pocketbook. But whatever you call it, I've been on the hunt for a new one for about a year now. I love the purse I have. It's lime green, has pockets on the outside for my phone and keys, and is a good size. And Big Daddy--amazing man that he is--found me a wallet, all on his own, that matches it perfectly! Same lime green, same kind of buckle. I swear he's half gay. Anyway, my favorite purse is showing some wear. And I just feel like it's time for a change. But I'm kind of picky when it comes to choosing a new purse, and I just haven't found anything that fits the bill yet. It has to be on the smaller side. I know these gargantuon "garbage bag" purses are en vogue now. But they're just not me. Unless I have to hide a body or carry around a large dog, they are just too spacious. I want something only just big enough for my stuff; the less room, the less likely I am to fill it with junk that I have to clean out later. I also have to have at least one exterior pocket for easy access to my cell phone. I prefer lots of pockets. In fact, the purses that have made me the happiest have had pockets and compartments all over them. But those just aren't in right now. The few I have found with lots of pockets and compartments are SO not hip. And that's my other prerequisite; it has to be hip and edgy and different. Not black or brown. It has to say something about me.
SO....here's what I recently chose...
What do you think? I don't actually have it in hand. I ordered it online. So I hope I like it in real life. My only real complaint is that there is one big area inside (I like it divided). But it's kind of different and seems to have a few compartments. So hopefully I will like it. Now to find a matching wallet. Better put Big K on the job.
