I tend to prefer medium-sized purses. Something just big enough to hold most of what I think I need, but not so big that it will hold everything I can stuff into it. Goodness knows, I start with good intentions, clean out the wallet, reduce the weight, dump out the hairclips, slips of paper and envelope lists. But after only a day or two, I'm at it again.....drop this in, I'll put my hair up later; toss that in too, I'll have time to read while in the waiting room; extra change goes in; a grocery list; a card I want to give to someone; and on and on. So, to reduce the clutter and weight, I wear smaller purses. I figure that if it fits, it goes in. If it can't go in, I'll have to figure out a better way to transport it or leave it behind. Usually I leave it behind. Rarely do I miss it.
Now I've run into a problem--every purse I see these days is huge, suitcase-sized. Should I just give in to the trend and make big purses for my etsy? Or, should I buck the trend, make medium and small purses and hope for the best? I have a few very small purses that are going nowhere, so I won't be adding to that virtual rack. But something that a couple of bricks would fit into is just the size for me, am I the only one? What's your real purse size? By that I mean what is the size you REALLY prefer? Forget what's popular or trendy or passe'. I want to know what size you'd buy if you found the perfect purse. (We'll tackle pockets on another post....I am too ADHD to deal with more than one topic.)
