I have never bought a decent handbag. My sister worked for Sportsgirl HQ for years and through their buying and designing for new seasons and lines, they were privy to sample sales and freebies every other week. She was wonderfully generous in passing on these freebies, and chunks of her wardrobe when new season samples needed to be squeezed in. I would estimate three quarters of my wardrobe came from my sister. I'm not complaining. I think every handbag I have had over the past five years came from Sportsgirl. And was free. And now, my sister has moved to a fancy pants high end fashion label and the freebies are no longer. Sob. I have to PAY for clothes. Gasp! And handbags. This would be perfectly okay if I could actually find a handbag that I liked. Wow there are some hideous bags out there. This is not one of them.
Isn't she beautiful? I think she should be delivered to me in bed this Mother's Day, by my precious smalls, preferably sometime after 10am. Too easy. After years of not paying for beautiful handbags, I shouldn't worry about the price tag and indulge a little.
Before I put her in my basket and head to the checkout, I need to know - what's the best handbag you've ever had? I need details, people. I need to know if there's something better out there for me. It has to be big. You know I have to fit all that kid guff in it, drink bottle, snacks, matchbox cars, as well as my camera on some days. Help me out ladies!
