Oversized hand bags are in. I've always carried rather small purses. I've had this fear that if I carry a big one I'll look like a child playing dress up with "mommy's purse." Then I had a baby. I hate carrying a diaper bag and a purse. Way too many bags. After thinking about it, I decided the best solution for me was to invest in larger purses that would be capable of holding not only my crap, but my baby's crap too. That way I just had 1 bag for everything. So maybe I can't find my wallet because it's swimming in a pile of diapers, and maybe I accidentally pull out baby keys and try to start the car with them, but at least I don't have to fumble through 2 bags. I've seen women like Jessica Simpson carrying bags 2 times her size.
Am I a fashion faux-pa? What do other moms do about the diaper bag/purse situation? Any petite girls out there who rock a giant purse? I found this information, and this information helpful.
This is a yellow bag I recently purchased at the thrift store for $3.
This is a Steve Madden leather bag I bought at T.J. Maxx. They actually knocked 10 bucks off the price because one of the straps was coming un-weaved. Nothing I couldn't fix- for a $10 discount. I had no idea he did purses too until I bought this bag.
