Do you use the same handbag for the whole season, or do you often change your handbag depending on what you are wearing, or where you are going?

I tend to stick with the same handbag either for half a season or the whole season.

Although I have about 25 handbags, I only use about 3!

But still, I cannot give away most of the ones I have as they are all lovely and in perfect order.

I tend to use ones that can double up as a back pack as these hurt my back less if I have to walk with them or go shopping.

I do not anymore, match handbags to clothes I am wearing.

Old age and shoulder bags . . . . my nemesis :((((((((

Hi Finy. I mostly use X body bags now. I have 1 red 1 & a black 1. 99% of the time, these will match the 27 (?) cotton dresses I wear, ALL through the year. I do have many other handbags as you do Finy! I too just can't make my self throw them out, even though I haven't used some of them for years & years! My 'nylon' shopping bags also have to match what I wear.

One bag. That's me. It goes all over the world with me. Wonderful brand, very compact, tough as nails, has RFID pouch inside, uncuttable strap and 3 clips to lock together to keep pickpockets out. If I go out with the other half I seldom carry a bag or purse. I do have a couple but they live in the wardrobe. Boring, I know :(
by Rice
isnt it odd - i cannot go out without a bag of some description even when I know I do not need it.
by Finy
I find I can relax much more if I know I don't have a bag with me.
by Rice
Oh! Rice,....I cannot leave house WITHOUT a bag! These new 'mini' types' are very handy to just 'pop-down' to the shops for emergency, eg to buy ONE Carrot, & Tinned Whole Champignons, for a Casserole Dinner, like I had to tonight!

The 'mini's' are just big enough to carry my Wallet, Mobile, & a Hankie! Lol!

Yep, if I use one at all it tends to be the same one, which is my favourite (it's rainbow striped). I have another more formal one for special occasions.
I only ever use the 1 handbag, because it normally has cost me to buy (the perrrfect one).

They are always quite small, and have a very long strap, and in black leather.

They always have compartments for all my cards etc, and would take 10 mins to empty!

I make sure it will never look shabby, first sign....and another is bought.

This year and last I bought 2 of the very same.

I am now on my 2nd, the first was looking sad....after a year of use.

I do of course look after them.I have other bags, but have this habit of using just the one?

I often buy clothes the very same too, in different colours....if they look great.

Keeps life simple for me...With a (time) in a very formal uniform for a part of my life , I just have gone away from mainstream dressings.
jonaj, your bag is practically identical to mine!! :-))
by Rice
seriously! :)
by jonaja
Yes!! I laughed out loud when I saw it. We must be soooooo practical >:))

I tend to just use the same bag all the time,even though I have some utterly GORGEOUS ones which are of super-softest leather which would probably be rather lovely to use for a change!! They cost me almost nothing from the Op Shop some time back,and as they were practically brand new,I couldn't resist them,even though I felt at the time that I may never use them!!! I just get into a comfortable habit with bags,I think!
I have lots of bags but only use one
by AJ
I have about half a dozen bags. I only use one leather bag for everyday use. I got it two years ago for my birthday. It is the most beautiful colour and has a big bow on the side. Truthfully, not a day goes by when I don't get a compliment about it. I don't like big clunky bags. It is just the right size. Women carry far too much junk in their bags. I have about four different bags that I use for evening wear, or going out somewhere special. During the day I don't ' colour code' my bag to my clothes. Highly unnecessary.
Am a bag tragic!
Just love big tote bags! I carry so much 'stuff'!

I change according to what I'm wearing. Am big on being colour coordinated!

Where I'm going also plays a part in bag selection.
For example, am going to a relaxing NYE Concert, so am wearing brown RM's, blue denim jeans, blue & grey striped top, matching scarf, & Navy Jacket. The tote bag is brown, to match boots!
And I know I'll feel a million $, as will be well dressed, & very comfortable, appropriate to the occasion!

Happy New Year, everyone on Answer Angels!
Happy New Year, donjo!! :-))

Same one all year. Black, tote bag. Change bags and it seems to take me a month to find things again.

Oh! You're funny fran!

I have about 45 handbags, & these were very useful when I wore slacks with different coloured tops. Now I wear sleeveless cotton dresses only, & as most of them have black & white in the pattern, I have a small B/W cotton lined handbag.
I also have a black leather ‘brand’ name one. The other day, I bought a small bright red bag made from red zippers! but I just can’t make my self get rid of all the other bags I haven’t used for years! I
just HAVE to be coloured coordinated before I leave the house! I’ve been this way since I was in my teens. I even wear my dresses when I go food shopping. even my watches have to match what I wear.

Oh! miro_.......ditto re:colour co-ordinated, from hat (to stop glare in my eyes'), all inclusive way down to socks! And yes, watch, too!

That's what my Mother always did, & she was ALWAYS very well dressed. She taught me same from when I a teenager, too! Cheers!
by donjo
AND my nylon shopping bags also have to match my dresses! My red zipper bag caught on 1 of my shopping bags, the last time I used it, & the zipper, unzipped, & I can't zip it together again! That was a ;x the body' bag, which I'm leaning to using more now. Much easier to wear while pushing a suitcase around airports & streets!
by Miro
I change from time to time but always seem to leave some important item behind.
My work/carry bag that is not handbag
by dwatk
I tend to stick to just the one when out and about - a red, white, and black tote I bought in Fiji, but I also have a couple that I like to use for more formal occasions.
by Vee
I use it till it breaks, get a new one bigger, or it just plain wears out!
