If there’s one thing I appreciate, it’s a thoughtfully selected handbag. That’s because I respect the fact that the right purse can take your look from “just graduated college” (not that there’s anything wrong with that, but at 31, I and other women my age should be aiming for something a little…well, older), to “of course I’m carrying the appropriate handbag, I’m an adult.”

However, all that being said, I have to admit that I don’t take the measures to ensure that my handbag is always up to snuff that perhaps I should. For instance, right now, I’m carrying a bag that I’ve had for at least a year, and since that’s what I’m writing here you can assume it’s actually been much longer than that.

The thing is that once I buy a bag that I really like, I don’t think about it again until the bag begins to fall into disrepair. STOP JUDGING ME.

At any rate, I’m beginning to ponder the possibility of having more than one daytime bag in rotation at a time, thereby keeping my beloved satchels in better condition for longer periods of time, and avoiding inadvertently giving off the impression that…um, that I never buy new handbags.

What about you?
