I'm sickly today, it's nearly midday and I'm still in PJs on the sofa, surfing the internet and I think I'm off for a sleep soon, it's just a cold but why does that make you feel like death warmed up?
ANYWAY I told you this as the above question came to me as I was laying in bed this morning, trying to psych myself up to getting up, even if it was just to put PJs on to lay on the sofa!
I was looking at my lovely vintage handbags in my bedroom thinking what a shame it is that I don't use them often and that I really should use them more often
This one is one of my favourites it's a great shape and it's a Marks and Spencer one!
It's such a lovely shape isn't it? But what the heck can you get in it?
This is the dilemma of the modern woman who loves vintage, I'm not like some who carry the kitchen sink but I do carry keys which include a card size key for my car, Blackberry, a purse/wallet which I can't avoid as not only do you need cash in this day and age, I have credit cards, store loyalty cards, my drivers license is a card along with my organ donation credentials, make up but again don't carry more than I need so my make up back isn't big, a powder compact, and essentials like a pen! I think I'm pretty good but there is no way I would get all that in this cutie! Then of course if I'm going somewhere important I like to take a camera too, so forget it!
I have a couple more that I rarely use :o( I love the colour of this bag and would love to use it more, it's a solid nice shape and a nice colour but holds so little!
Now this next one I have used more and you can tell it's a little bashed but I used to have a couple of lovely green suits so I used this with those, but really as an evening bag, still not sure I could use it during the day
I also used this next one a lot but again as an evening bag, it's also a little 'worn' and sadly has one brass nobble missing - ok I'm sick I can't think of the name ha ha!
Now last but certainly not least is a bag that I CAN use in these modern times, I love it! It's stylish and big!!
So what do you think women used to carry? I imagine the following, their door key, cash, powder compact and lipstick! Ah life was much simpler wasn't it eh?!!
