I have always been the type that could never quite find that purse that suited ALL my needs. I averaged buying a new one at least once every 2 or 3 months and within a few days I am already unhappy. They either wear out to quickly, the straps break or they are just to hard to find anything in. It is so stressfull sometimes. There are better things I could be using my money for then buying new purses that often. I purchased a medium sized reversible purse from an Aeropostale store about a year ago. I have not bought another purse since. I finally found a brand that manufactors purses that can withstand someone with an active life. And it's reversible so I can change the look when I get a bit bored with it! Things are so easy to find now. I never have to dig for 5 minutes just to find my keys and the straps have yet to lose a thread even through all the tugging and pulling on them my children do. I have even had Kool Aid spilled all over this thing and it came right out with a simple toss in the wash. Most purses would have had to been tossed in the trash after a spill like that because they would have either been unwashable or the stain just wouldn't have came out. I am very pleased with the quality Aeropostale brings to its items and when the time comes for me to purchase a purse again, which will probably be some time from now, Aeropostale is the first place I am headed.
