Unique and Unusual Purses and Handbags

Updated on February 15, 2015

7 Unique and Unusual Purses

When it comes to unique and unusual purses and handbags, my friends and family are never surprised to see what kind of purse I may show up with next. Maybe it's the artist in me but I like fun, creative and different types of purses. One season you may see me sporting a purse with a picture of my border collie on it - then next season I might be wearing a small backpack purse with barely enough room to carry my belongings in (BTW ladies, one tip I've learned is that the smaller the purse you get used to, the less stuff you find you really need in it) Downsizing really can and does work.

In my quest for my next fun purse I ran across several candidates that deserve mention. I've included a couple that were too small for me but included them anyway just because they were so dog-gone cute. The purse I'm using right now was a present, and I love it, but it's kinda big and bulky so I'm looking for a new handbag.

So let's go shopping together!

The LIttle Rosette Bag

This little bag by far has got to be one of the cutest little purses I've seen. This would be perfect for a wedding, special event or a night out on the town. This purse comes in many colors but I LOVE the grey. Stunning!

I could even see myself using this everyday, it would definitely be an eye-catcher and get a lot of ohhh's and awww's. This would also be great to get in different color rosettes so you could match your little purse to whatever you are wearing.

Black Leather Purse - African Face Mask Design

Now this is cute! A little spooky but cute all the same. How would you like walking around with a life size replica of an African mask hanging from your shoulder?

Definitely an eye-catcher, people are definitely going to take a double take when they see this purse!

A Vintage Beaded Bag

Another one of my favorites. I love vintage and I love beads so this stunning little evening bag caught my eye right away. {Probably only big enough for a little money, cards and a phone but perfect when you are going out)

I love anything beaded and I think this would definitely be great for everyday use also.

Purses - Let's Not be Boring Now!

Cute and whimsical handbags are not only great conversation starters but they make you smile throughout the day. Since us ladies have to carry around a purse I think it's just plain fun to have some laughs while doing it. I enjoy unique and unusual handbags and purses.

I hope you have too!

    I wish I was a purse lover! These are really cute, since I too like unusual designs these would be something I might like! I have a friend who shops for a new purse weekly!! Never giving up her old ones.. I think I have to be the strangest female alive, clothes, shoes and bags just don't 'get me going'. But a very interesting Hub for sure!

    Voted up!
