Today I'm going to talk about THE BIG HANDBAG TREND. I'm sure you have seen them in the magazines and in the stores. They have been out for several years and they seem to be getting bigger. Even petite stars like Reese Witherspoon use them. I once got a Coach bag at a garage sale for the outrageous price of $30. I found out that even empty, it was too heavy for me. It was only moderate size, too. So how can people carry those enormous things that look like leather beach bags and not ruin their shoulders and back? How?
I found a very cute "name" straw purse at a church rummage sale for the slim price of $1.00. It was in great shape. It is roomy, about 9" by 13" in size and it's about as large as I can go without doing damage to some vital muscle group.
I have tried to see how other people (maybe you) can find them attractive. Some have elegant lines. Mostly they just look flat and hang there, probably because the owner can't bear to put anything much inside. If you are tall, then the look does get better I think. I'm for anyone using fashion in a way that pleases them as long as it is somewhat discreet, but though I have tried, I just don't get THE BIG HANDBAG TREND.
