I dislike large handbags, always have. But I need something large enough to hold the full-size wallet, keys, checkbook, business cards, my e-reader, and other necessities a woman carries. This purse fits the bill really well. It's just large enough to accommodate everything I need and to organize them in separate pockets. Most of the pockets are zippered, so I don't have to worry about dumping everything if I drop it or knock it over.
The leather's worn, but I'm not so formal that it matters. The wear adds character. This purse's one flaw is an inadequate shoulder strap. More than any other purse I've had in the last 20 years, this one will not stay on my shoulder. So, in the summer, I switch to a purse that's half the size with a much more useful strap.
