I was looking for a real small purse with a long strap that I could wear securely while sight-seeing or shopping on vacation. A big bag has its place, but sometimes I just don’t feel like carrying anything. Still it’s important to have your identification with you and maybe your phone and some money. This is the fashion season of the big bag, though, and it was hard to find anything really small that did have a long strap. I finally did find this style at an obscure store in our mall. They had lots of zany fabrics to choose from, and I chose “The Birds”. The style of this little purse is very simple. It has a push clasp like a vintage coin purse. I like its simplicity and I love that I can just slip the strap over my head and forget completely that I am even carrying a purse.
I have been using it recently as a camera bag for my new little camera and have found that it is a very comfortable way to carry a camera also. Now I’m thinking I should have bought more than one!
