Ladies Handbags

Updated on March 29, 2011

Designer Handbags For Ladies

Designer handbags are a fashion accessory and some cost a few dollars whilst some handbags cost a good few hundred dollars, although I find the prices of handbags and shoes quite ridiculous at times, but to most women they are an indulgence rather than an essential item. I've known some women to say that they have more than one handbag at a time, one for different occasions which I laugh at, because they do sound quite like posh toffs when they say something like that.

Handbags are an essential accessory for women as they are able to carry almost anything in them on their travels, I joke with my wife about what she carries in her handbag, it's like a tardis as it seems to hold lots of items and quite often she only may need her purse or her hairbrush, the rest in there is non essential, but still, she carries it around with her when we go to the shops.

I remember working in an office and this work colleague brought this massive handbag into work with her and I thought oh she must be going on holiday and brought her luggage with her. it was a huge square like hand bag that held all of her make up, her mobile phone, car keys, chop sticks, cardigan, doggy treats,sherbet lemons,hairbrush and more than likely the kitchen sink and all of her crockery and wardrobe was in there!!

Designer handbags that are made of leather, plastic or some type of snake skin are often sold on Amazon or ebay and any other online store that holds them, in fact Amazon has a large range of hand bags and shoes from a specialist site that they are partnered with.

Handbags are supposed to be used for having to hand some stuff that is easily reachable which is why the word hand bag is used, but some women use a hand bag as a fashion accessory and part of their wardrobe.

Go and buy a hand bag if you must, but do make it a practical buying decision.

Handbags Options

 Hand bags come in a wide range of sizes and styles and I suppose it comes down to personal choice and what you ladies need to put in your handbag. If you simply need somewhere to put your mobile phone, then a phone case may be your best bet.

Read the reviews on Amazon to get a good idea on which ones to buy as others will have already bought certain types of hand bag for you to gather some informed buyer information for you to form your own opnion on buying a handbag.

A practical hand bag may be what you need with space to fit all of your stuff in, maybe one with a zipper compartment or separate pockets for different things or maybe you just dump everything in there and like to root around to find something. Your buying options are:

  • Buy an expensive designer hand bag
  • Buy an inexpensive imitation hand bag
  • Buy a cheap hand bag made by pigmies
  • Buy a purse just for your money

Remember if you see a hand bag walking down the street, Run! as it may be a crocodile!

      Great information, thanks! I am sorry to say that I am one of those ladies too but have learned my lesson and now choose a bag with a light coloured lining as it makes finding things inside, so much easier and less like (as my mum used to say), "looking for a black cat in a coal hole"!
