This is my handbag this year. I found it at a recycle shop last Christmas. It has lots of pockets and though it looks smaller than a tote bag purse, it really holds a lot. And everything doesn't get cluttered at the bottom... it is more of a vertical purse so things tend to stay in one place.
My purse is not what I'm showing you though... Look at the cute ornament that Kaoru-san gave me yesterday. She found someone making leather animal ornaments while she was on vacation and she had one made for each of her friends in English class. A kitty! And even personalized! It makes me smile when I look down and see it hanging on my bag.
Thank you Kaoru-san!
