Re: Whar are absolute deal breakers for a handbag?

Must be huge and able to hold everything I carry and be sturdy so the straps won't break.  Pockets on the outside and inside.  Prefer zippers on the inside pockets.

Re: Whar are absolute deal breakers for a handbag?

I am particular about my handbags too; they have to be really pretty and hold what I need it to hold - and my wallet needs to match.  I do not like the feet on the bottom, I don't put my bag on a floor or surface so not needed for me.  And I only like 1 or maybe 2 zippered pockets on the inside, nothing on the outside.

I have a favorite brand and don't tend to venture from that brand.  I also need to have the matching accessories (OCD)...LOL

Re: Whar are absolute deal breakers for a handbag?

I used to love leather bags. Now they seem too heavy. I really need a new summer purse. I like “ the Sak” woven bags . I also like Vera Bradley microfiber bags. I always use crossbody when traveling or sightseeing.I have the travelon bags they sell here at QVC. I bought a set of two last year or the year before. love them, can dress them up or down. For everyday I have a michal Kors purse that I hold in my hand or over my arm. It’s not too big. I just cant do shoulder bags any more. Too heavy!

@Imaoldhippiewrote:

Must have "feet" on the bottom, and outside pockets, and a light colored lining so I can see into it to find things.  Also, I like large bags so I can carry whatever is necessary to me.

Bags that let items spill out if the bag is tipped.  That style is just an invitation to pickpockets. I will even buy a magnetic snap if it keeps contents secure, but I prefer a zipper.

My absolute favorite purse is an old Tig style from back when they were all leather. It is an east/west satchel - strap adjusts from cross body to short shoulder, and it has 7 outside pockets.Love it! So neat and organized! Tig used to make some great bags back when they first came to QVC. Now they make junk. Sad.

Re: Whar are absolute deal breakers for a handbag?

I really don't have much criterias for picking out a purse. I like to have variety so I have purses in every size, shape and function. Nothing is a deal breaker for me. Oh I just thought of one...it has to be a designer bag. Woman Happy
