I’m not one of the women who goes nuts over clothes, but handbags, well, I’m always on the lookout for a good one. The one I have now fits my current needs so perfectly I hope it never gets worn out or destroyed by a leaking pen or a marauding granddog.
The reason I always look for handbags is that the kind I prefer are not plentiful. First, I need a cross-body bag because everything else slides off my shoulders, and I need both hands free for other stuff. I also require a zipper top as I’ve lost several pairs of glasses from them spilling out of purses in restaurants and conferences. To protect the glasses, I have hard shell cases for both the regular glasses and the sunglasses. And then there’s the rest of the stuff that goes in a purse.
So far, everything on my purse check list is for function. With regard to style, I’m less picky, though I am attracted to bright colors. In fact, my favorite colors are red and turquoise, followed by pink and orange. Since I wear those color tops with jeans, I needed something in a purse which was neutral or would go with everything.
I found the perfect bag online, copied the url to my husband, and he snagged it for my birthday. I didn’t realize the canvas fabric was as sturdy or waterproof as it is, but golly, this bag is awesome. I wear it everywhere I go, and it’s so nice having everything I need in a bag that’s just the right size. You won’t find me on a fashion runway because I’m too busy doing other stuff!
Speaking of other stuff, have you checked out my new science fiction release? G-1 is the first book in my Guardian of Earth series.
