Most of my handbags are black, simply because they are versatile and match most of the clothes in my wardrobe, but my baby bag (which looks like a handbag) is a mustard yellow. I wanted the orange one but the store didn't have them in stock.
My current bag is orange leather with a shoulder strap. It has handpainted decoration over the bag. I am always getting comments about it wherever I go. I like it now more than when it was new as the leather has softened considerably and is lovely to the touch.
1: Small black & white, cotton, with b/w tiny check pattern inside. 2: Navy & light mouve, all made from zippers. 3: small bright red zipper bag. 5: Bright green, cotton side bag. 6: Dark red leather handbag I bought in Athens, I can wear on my back, 7: Bright orange PVC, 8: Purple PVC same style as the orange 1, 9: Navy blue PVC. 9: Olive green Harrod's bag, 10: Smaller black PVC Harrod's Bag, i also have 2 or 3 black leather hand bags, & about 20 patterned handbags that I used to use to match my slacks & patterned tops, or visa-versa. Now that I only wear different patterned cotton sleeveless dresses, in all the same style, I only use the plain coloured handbags now, but I can't make myself get rid of the patterned bags.
When I go cruising, I take 7/8 very small evening bags for the evenings, to take to dinner & the show afterwards, with a hanky & my camera, notebook & pen in it & also my husbands spare glasses. & sometimes, his camera as well. So I guess they're really evening purses, not handbags!
