I used to have very specific requirements for my handbags, and a very small collection. I may have eased up a bit and let a few trickier bags sneak in, but I still have some absolutes:
- Roomy: I carry a huge wallet, huge sunglass case, and sizable makeup bag. And I prefer a bag that’s big enough to accomodate a pair of mittens, some tissues, and even a bottle of water if I’m sneaking one into the movies. Small bags just don’t work for me.
- Silver hardware: I may have eased up on this in my shoe collection, but it’s still non-negotiable for bags.
- Easy to open: Nothing makes me more insane than having to contort myself around and fight with a sticky zipper in order to extract a ringing mobile phone.
