I got this purse when I went to London in 2011, so it has definitely lasted a long time. It's faded and a bit dingy looking, but the canvass is strong, and it is the perfect size with just the right amount of pockets. I found it in a tourist store near Paddington station for about £20. Not a bad find I'd say.
As I said though, it is getting a bit dingy. So it might be time for a new one. I'm fussy though, and this one will be hard to replace. I like bags that can be worn cross shoulder leaving my hands free, so that rules out most traditional handbags. I also like it to be big enough to hold my things without being overly cumbersome. I have a couple of cute messenger bags, but they are too big for an everyday purse. I probably should get a little purse though for going out, when I just need a few items on me.
I looked on Killstar and saw these cute purses but I'm not sure they are big enough. I couldn't find the dimensions though, which is a bit problematic.
I saw this one as well. It does not look practical, but I might get it as a small "going out" type purse. It is very different.
I also looked at Grindstore and saw quite a number of bags there, though again, I'm wondering about the size. I saw these two. I'd probably be more likely to go with the first, but the second I admit I did consider.
I saw others on EBay, including a pistol belt shoulder bag and a purple plaid one. The problem is - I'm just so fussy! I know I will make a decision soon though.
What do you look for in a purse?
