I finally gave in and bought a great big purse. I only ever used to use a much smaller one, but then I started carrying a notebook in my purse to jot down review ideas, a camera to take pictures for review ideas, and then the list of necessities just seemed to grow.
So once I decided I needed a bigger purse, I went to my favorite store, Nordstrom Rack, to see if I could find a nice one that was not going to break the bank.
What I chose is a dark chocolate brown, supple leather, big, purse with nice braided leather handles, and also a cross-body leather strap. I love a cross-body strap so I can have my hands free to carry whatever else it is that I need to carry.
My purse has inside pockets that are perfect for my cell phone, Bluetooth headset, and car keys.
I chose a conservative look because I consider this purchase an investment. I expect this purse to last a real long time, and I think with it's classic look, it will always be in style.
