More Comments re: handbags for Jenni

Hi Jenny!

I know I didn't post any Coach handbags and I really really tried to go on there and pick something out but I am not the BIGGEST FAN of Coach..... I have a problem with the tag stating "Made in China" .... ugh!! Why couldn't they make their handbags in the USA or Spain or even Malaysia?? Okok, sorry for being so anal but in my previous post, I gave you a few different luxury brands with handbags under $500.00. I'm not exactly sure what you are looking for and when a girl goes shopping for a handbag, it can be what you least expect or like! After your shopping trip this weekend, let me know what you had decided on, ok?

Tips by Trish
  • Be sure to pose with the handbag and when I mean "pose" I mean, holding it in your hands, on your shoulder etc.
  • Make sure there is enough room in the handbag to carry all your needed personal items plus some. Extra room, even a little, is important cuz you never know what you might put in there last minute!
  • I love pockets esp. big pockets (on the front) and pockets inside the purse, to hold cellphones or lipstick etc.
  • Comfort is a big one for me esp. holding a lot of stuff in my handbag, shoulder strap being thick and carrying the weight evenly over your shoulders or handle grips have a comfortable grip when holding the bag with your hands.

Ok last but not def. not least favorite and under $500 but not very practical...

Louis Vuitton

  • Unique fold-over flap closure with hidden snap

  • Inside patch pocket
  • Elegant shoulder strap

Good Luck with your shopping and be sure to have fun with it!!! Wish I could be there with you, I would never turn down handbag shopping...actually who am I kidding?? I would NEVER turn down shopping of any kind. P.E.R.I.O.D. Can't wait to hear all about your shopping trip and awaiting to see what you decide on as your new handbag!!!
