I was always been fascinated by the contents of the female purse. It is the Swiss Army Knife of life. Anything short of a nuclear weapon can likely be found in the purses of a collective female group. e.g., need a band-aid; a receipt from a Macy's purchase, last decade; or a discount restaurant coupon - all there.
I emptied my everyday purse (amazed at what ancient artifacts I found) and decided to show what I consider my essentials. How did I ever function with just pockets?
What's in your Purse?
A Mercedes key, there's posh! As you say a man's suit might have 4 trouser pockets and the jacket 3 outer and maybe 3 inside pockets but you can't get all you need in them without bulging uncomfortably. When working I used to carry a man's shoulder bag. Not very British but the Europeans seem to get by with them. Of course it is much more acceptable to be carrying a laptop bag these days.ReplyDelete
