They say you can learn a lot about a woman by the type of purse/pocketbook (for us Southerners Haha) she carries. You know..the size, style, color can possibly predict what mood she is in, how much of her own 'personal' baggage she has, and what type of personality she might have.
And they say you can learn even more about who she is by what is on the inside of her handbag (for those of you who are more 'chic' about it! ;op), and even which side she carries her purse on!
It really is a personal thing!! That is why so many folks would freak out if you ask to look inside their purse! Is it a mess? Neat? Got some really personal items in there? You know! All that stuff :oD
I've been packing light lately. I guess that has just been the mood I have been in.
It really is just a reflection of how I am feeling right now. I am not wanting anything to weigh me down or being flashy (every now and than I may want a splash of color...as of late I have been trying to branch out in that! I used to be just a black purse/shoe girl - still kinda am!).
And once I really thought about it, I am carrying my essentials. My "must haves"
If I carried a larger size pocketbook anything else would just be "extra".
You know how it goes: the bigger the purse the more you will put in it!
With that being said this is what is on the inside today. My purse guts consist of:
~ My Treo - for lots of texting, yapping and storing my personal data!
~ My keys - for access and MVP cards Haha :o)
~ My favorite pen - for balance when I write!
~ My very favorite body butter - for constant moisture needed for my very dry hands
~ Hand sanitizer - for my slight OCD ;op
~ Papers - which are always in my purse! Y'all see I can't stay out of A.C. M.oore Haha!
Ooh! And I almost always have gum in my purse, but I remembered that I ran out last night which is why it didn't make it in my photo shot today :op. I always have my favorite Polar Ice Eclipse and/or Mint Mojito Orbit gum.
And in the inside zipper pocket (I normally carry a wallet, but no room for all that here!):
~ Gotta have a little bit of money (I normally don't carry this much on me) if not enough green then I swipe the card!
~ Of course my personal ID
~ My favorite lipstick in Honeyflower, and chapstick in fig by B.urt B.ee
~ Happen to have a D.ean & D.eLuca frequent card on me since I just ate there.
I truly normally carry more than all of this in my purses!!
And of course what is going on in my life dictates whats inside too! ;op
Y'all just happen to catch me on a good day! ;o)
Well I definitely have a thing for hangbags and shoes, based on what I can afford (sometimes) Haha! :o)
So I have lots of them
As I said I am trying to add color to my purses now! Haha! :o) And I have also found myself switching my purses up a lot lately.
By no means am I a purse connoisseur or try to keep up with the latest fashions/styles! Though, I do definitely have a long wish list for purses too! ;oD
I used to be the kind who always carried that one favorite purse for a long period of time, but now I switch up according to my mood and if I am not too lazy based on what I am wearing.
With all this purse talking I think it may just be time to get a new pursenality! ;oD
