The “Almost Perfect” Purse

My faithful readers know that I’ve been on the quest for the “Perfect Purse.” I’m looking for something that’s:

  • Cute and fashionable
  • Divided into two main pockets (one for my stuff, one for Baby’s stuff)

Added bonus: it has a super cute design that works well with most outfits.

I don’t really like the way it hangs… it’s got a little too much of a “laptop messenger bag” feel as opposed to “cute handbag.” But that’s a minor quibble, and one I can live with for now. Overall, I’d say this bag is almost perfect. So, at least for a while, I’m going to quit my quest for the perfect purse and move on to other shopping adventures.

  3. […] Since I’ve started carrying MY stuff and BABY stuff, I really like to be organized (Hence, my quest for the Perfect Purse.). This is partly because I am an organization nut, and partly because I carry a lot of junk in one […]
