When I was younger, I changed out my purse about as often as I changed my toothbrush. Over the years, my hygiene habits evolved, as did my style. It wasn’t long before I noticed a good purse was the finishing touch to an outfit. Whether it is a bright yellow hobo bag added to an ensemble of neutrals or a vintage clutch covered in bright blue beads against a little black dress – a choice of purse makes an impact on the total look.
My collection takes up three narrow shelves of my closet. I keep larger bags on the low shelf, medium on the middle and evening clutches on the top. As you can probably see, I did change some of them around for the aesthetic appeal of the photograph.
When it comes to organizing my bag on the inside, it’s fairly simple. A few smaller bags(make-up even Ziplock) arranged just right inside a larger one can make things so much simpler when looking for a ringing cell phone or your car keys. I have separate bags for my make-up, cell phone and business cards, a zip lock to hold my preschooler’s small toys and crayons, and a bag for any “club cards and special coupons or store dollars. When I change a purse to match an outfit, it’s as simple as grabbing a few bags out of the old one and throwing them into the new one.
I would love to hear your ideas for keeping an organized bag.
