What color is your handbag? Dark brown

Do you call it a handbag? purse? pocketbook? wristlets? or______________? Purse

Do you match it to your shoe/boot colors? No

Do you change handbags often? Seasonally, so 3-4x/year (but I recycle, I don't get new ones often)

What about your college students? DS18 doesn't use one! LOL

Sue, where we're having snow today

I'm a 'super hip chick' as far as the bag test went - but honestly I didn't have a response to a lot of those questions so just picked somethinng and I don't like the handbag that was 'me' - it has handles and I've never liked anything but a shoulder bag!

Hi Elle, I took the quiz and I am boho and fabulous also! "My" (our) purse is cute but I don't know that I would carry it...and since I don't tweet either I guess the opportunity won't come up anyway!

What color is your handbag? the one I'm currently using is brown but I have others in black and brown.

Do you call it a handbag? purse? pocketbook? wristlets? or______________? I call it a purse

Another boho & fab, but I have to admit that had there been a "none of the above", I would have chosen that for three of the questions.

Do you call it a handbag? purse? pocketbook? wristlets? or______________? Purse

My current small, black nylon purse was a freebie from Self magazine, that I got about 5 yrs ago.

I know going out on a hot date was a tricky question:smileysurprised:

Did you like how they were checking if you matched your shoes to your bag by asking your toe colors :smileyvery-happy::smileytongue::smileyhappy:.

And the selections for my shopping spree would probably have been to a different store!

My handbag changes, I have a green one today. It really is more like a wallet with a strap! It matched my sunglasses

Tomorrow I'll use a bigger one... I'm going to the west coast (of FL) it is orange!

Everything old is new again, seemingly.

Have you seen the flatforms? Supposedly they have the comfort of a flat merged with the sexy heel.

Giving it a new name doesn't alter the fact that this is retro all the way.

Anyone recall those clunky soles bashing your ankles a lot, back in the 70s?

SNOW??

Guess sandals are out of the picture for you!

I tend to go for messenger type bags too. Seems like so many have huge handles now so they can go over your shoulder.

No murse lovers in our boys??:smileywink:

Do you have a dress code in your office?

When I was younger in the 70s I never wore shoes with the clunky heels
since I hate the style.
I wore shoes with pumps style heels about 2 inches for dress.
I was pretty conservative.

I turned my ankle on one of those old (Bass) platformish shoes....now I know when it's going to rain in that ankle (had to do major PT and I was only 22). I hope girls are sensible...sigh.

Yes, 3-4" of snow predicted today!

I don't like handles over the shoulder - one stays, the other flops down.

Dress code - only things NOT to wear like shorts, or sleeveless. On the manufacturing floor, no open toes, skirts, etc. In the engineering/office area, we're more open. Some wear jeans daily; I wear them on Fridays. Floor (manufacturing) people wear tshirts; I could never do that but then I'm not assembling things all day; mostly at my desk on my computer or at meetings. Thankfully only internal people, so no need to get dressy at all.

When I was in my late teens I owned several pair of platform shoes... didn't care for the clunky things, but wore them because they were fashionable.... AND I was dating a guy who was 6'5" and I needed the extra height! LOL
