I am looking for a small handbag to take with me to amusement parks and the like this summer. I'm tired of carrying the jumbo bag because I end up with everyone's goods at the end of the day with my shoulders and back hurting. I want to carry the bare minimum and prefer to have my hands free. Here are 3 that have caught my eye through zappos.com, now it's deciding which one would be the best for me.
This first one is the Puma Campus Portable- $25.00. I am a huge Puma handbag fan. I find them to be truly timeless and durable. This one has a long enough strap to be wore cross body and measures 7"w x 2"d x 8"h. It has one main compartment and a little inside pocket to hold a phone. It only comes in black w/the white print. I wouldn't have pause if it came in a tan or brown color.
My second choice is the Paula by LeSportsac- $32.00. I've owned a LeSportsac handbag and found it durable. I think it was a Christmas gift when I was 13 and I even passed it on to my mom. She wore it for years. Thank goodness it was the traditional black, if it was a print it would have looked outdated. This has a strap that measures 3 1/4" with a detachable clip at the end. I can see myself clipping this through a belt. The whole thing is 3 3/4"w x 1 3/4"d x 5"l. It has two main compartments with pockets on the inside. I'm afraid that if I get it, it will look more like a camera bag then a wristlet.
Here is my third choice. The Harajuku Lovers Girls Sweetie Crossbody in Geisha Girls- $46.40. I am a big kid at heart and this little messenger bag hits all the right buttons. It's pink with cherry blossoms and cute geisha girls all over it. It measures 10.25"w x 3.5"d x 11"l with one main compartment, a zipper pocket on the back wall and a little phone pocket on the front wall.
I think I just made my decision...I'm buying the Harajuku one! I'm just over the moon with it. Shopping through zappos.com shipping is free if you chose the standard. Hopefully it will be here the beginning of next week and I'll post a little review about it.
