The Everyday Purse

As I mentioned a few months ago, my classic Coach is too small for my post-college life and I've been looking for a new everyday purse. I needed one big enough to hold my planner, cell, ipod, checkbook, lotion, hand sanitizer, a bottle of water, and a trade paperback. (Hmm, those last two things are a bad combination.) I wanted a neutral color, but it didn't have to be black or brown (Though it did a few months ago). Leather was my material must, since I wanted the purse to last at least five years. I ended up with the pink B. Makowsky below (half off at T.J. Maxx!), and am very impressed withe the quality for the price. Elliott Lucca and Hobo International repeatedly caught my eye while I looked for a new purse.
