It’s In The Bag


I’m looking for a new handbag.

For over a year, I’ve been in love with a small Salvatore Ferragamo purse. At the time I was looking to simplify my life, so I downsized from a big shoulder-breaking tote to an elegant little black bag that fits a very small wallet, my cell phone, a compact and a few other little baubles.

But I’m getting a hankering for a bigger bag. Totes are so in right now. But I don’t want one that is too big.

Here are some adorable bags. They’re fairly expensive but so cute and colorful.
