Purse Fetish

I have purse issues.

Red by Marc Ecko
I am a serial purse monogamist.

I know women who will buy one purse and stay faithful to that purse and that purse alone until the day that purse dies. It is with sadness and trepidation that they go forth in search of a new soul purse. They search carefully and practically for a purse they can call their own. When they find that purse, they again commit themselves wholly just as they did the last time around.

I am not one of those women.

Completely awesome little vintage purse. 
I get itchy and antsy from using the same purse too long. Too long can range anywhere from a day to a few months. I don't stop loving my purses, I just switch around frequently. Maybe serial monogamist is the wrong term. Purse polygamist. That seems more fitting. Lots of purses. Love them all equally. Use all of them fairly equally.

The other day I was wearing one of my purses as I walked by the big mirror in my dining room. Seeing the purse in the mirror was like falling in love all over again. I forgot how much I liked this purse.

Here, I took a picture for you:

And now here's the close up: 

This is my Big Buddha purse. 


I have seen a lot of posts concerning what people have in their purses. I have yet to have a day where the amount/type of stuff in my purse wasn't too appalling or disconcerting to post. I have a reputation for a few things in regards to my purses. 1. Having a lot of purses and switching them constantly. 2. Having a wide variety and large volume of over the counter medications in my purse. 3. Nonsensical miscellany randomly stuffed in my purse that I can pull out like Mary Poppins.  Like the time I pulled a set of speakers out of my purse in Russian class and offered them up for use with the teacher's laptop. It wasn't planned. I just happened to have a set of speakers in my purse. 

What's your purse profile? Do you stick with the same one until it wears out? Buy a new one and cast aside the old one every so often? Buy a bunch and switch back and forth constantly? 

Do you have size, shape, and color requirements? I like a variety. Here let me show you: 





Also in case you are interested, here are some links to people who ARE willing to share the contents of their purse:

  5. So-- Im a happy medium. I used to change my purses to match my outfits. I loved little bags.
    Then I feel HARD for my red guess little bag I got from graduation. Then after 2 years or so I found my medium black guess bag. Then I saw a jimmy choo bag in ATL that I left-- and have had dreams of it often. Thats when I know I missed out-- when I dream about it. The next bag in my life was my infamous big red guess hobo. Me and that bag becamse one. People knew when I was there by my bag. It was that fab. Men loved it. Yep that great. But it is gettin older and showing signs of old age. I retired it. And now I have my tiger- inspired guess bag that makes grin every time I look at it. Love was found again.
    I still have a lot of purses. But only for special occasions do I change. Why would I when my tiger is so fab?

  6. I have to say that I still associate you with the red Guess hobo. Also there are a bunch of new Guess bags that I am totally in love with so I have to stay very far away from that store.
