The Purse, The One Accessory Women Just Can't Live Without

The purse or handbag as it is sometimes referred to is a pocketbook that is normally used as an accessory by women. These purses or bags are used to hold items such as wallets, keys, tissues, cell phones, makeup, keys, and other items that women just can't be without.

A new study of 2,000 women found that we tend to carry around some rather unusual items in our handbags--sex toys, baby teeth, dog biscuits, and and extra pair of undies all made the list, according to the Sydney Morning Herald"The poll confirmed what most men suspect - women really do carry almost everything but the kitchen sink in their handbags, with many ladies also confessing inner handbag 'demons' of envy and pride through an emotional attachment to their favorite bags," they write.

Available in many different shapes, sizes, and styles, the purse has become a must have accessory for all women. In addition to this, purses have also become a fashion accessory with many designer labels now producing their own range of purses. These include Gucci and Louis Vuitton, to name a few.

The purse can come in a wide range of materials and fabric including leather, animal fur, animal skin such as crocodile is also very popular, silk, and cotton. Small to medium sized purses with short handles that are designed only to be carried are referred to as clutch purses and these are very popular for night time use. An alternate to animal skin leather is PU Leather, also known as Vegan or Faux leather. All of the bags available at are made from Faux Leather. PETA should be proud!  

A coin purse is one that is just big enough to hold money and cards and this can be stored in larger purses. Whilst purses are normally only carried by women, there is an alternative for men, and this is the backpack. Many men and women carry these backpacks and they have become very popular in today's modern society.

For many women one purse is not enough and for many purses has become one of their many accessories. According to Glamour magazine, the average women owns 7 handbags. Different purses for different outfits and occasions are now very common and there are many women who may have up to ten or more purses in their possession.

Whether it's a designer label purse or one from the affordable styles from Amazon, you can be sure that in today's fashion conscious world, every woman will own at least two or three purses and will always be on the lookout for the latest model to add to her collection.
