Purses are a personal weakness of mine. I love them, and would have a different one for every day of the year if I had the money and the space. I especially like messenger bags. They can be worn cross-body, which leaves your hands free, and you don't have to worry about it sliding off your shoulder and dragging on the ground when your hands are full.
This messenger bag looks like it would stand the test of time. Made of seatbelt material, in a cool weave, it's big enough to hold whatever you need without being bulky or slouchy.
Alamodestuff also makes other types of purses as well as jewelry and other accessories...but this particular one is on my save-for list.
