first of all, those purses are bulky and ugly. throw them in the fire... I dislike purses altogether but I'm a woman.. now that I'm older, I do have use for one. anyway.. I like a brand called lux de ville.. the typical purse is about $100.. and even that is too much for a purse.. (IMHO). I work for my money and I have no problem spending it.. I just rather spend it on other things..
