Handbags. Bags. Purses. How many do you really wear?
As I was walking to class yesterday, I took a look at the straps of my purse. They are one string away from ripping right off. Then it got me thinking, "Why haven't I switched out purses in over a YEAR?"
It's true. I've been carrying around the same big, floppy, magenta purse for a over a year. It's not because I don't have other bags (too many to name) hanging around my closet. It's not because this one is so perfect that I can't bare to part ways. I think it's just because I'm too lazy to actually transfer all of the items inside of my bag from one to another. And I won't even mention the last time I bought one.
Then I started thinking about the last time we sold a purse at the local boutique that I work at once a week. I've been there for about 2-3 years now. I can't tell you the last bag we sold. I really cannot remember the last time someone even came in and took a second look at our purse shelves.
I love the idea of coordinating my bag with my outfit. But let's be honest here, there is just no way I could do that with school. Because I am stubborn and refuse to wear a booksack (they are complete outfit messer-uppers), I have to have an oversized bag to fit all of my school stuff in. I just can't realistically switch bags up every day. But I wish I could!
Here is what I want to know. How many of you shop for handbags on a regular occasion? When's the last time you bought one? How often do you shop for purses? How often to switch out and change up your bag to coordinate with your outfit? Do people still do this? Surely they do.
