Well, I have a nice collection of those "made in Italy", "made in Spain" soft leather business bags... love them! If I would have an action - I could make good money selling them. LOL
And b/s I had to commute to NYC, my bags were pretty big too.
Now... comfort and weight- my main criteria when buying bags. And yes, over the shoulder only, since my hands due to my conditions are not good enough to handle anything anymore.
I use a small one for RX, appointments cards, my meds, bottle of water only- always goes with me no matter where and when I go.
And the one as my small over the shoulder purse. Since I don't drive anymore due to foot drop, I honestly don't need my purse much unless I have an app.
and many times I don't take it with me if we go for a walk for example.
But still nice to have something nice to your "look", right?
After all we are girls and we love our nice purses...
