Recently I did the unthinkable.
I’ve become the phone and keys kinda girl.
I always thought that was a myth for effortlessly chic, Parisian women who simply… can. They can go with perfect mussed up hair, a slick of tinted lip balm and single coated mascara and just look damn good. In the same vein, they also don’t need to carry twenty lipsticks ‘just in case’, nor do they need five different modes of entertainment at any one time.
So to slot in with my new minimal bag situ, I’m considering the Coach Legacy Penny Purse (£195) as a newcomer to the Daisybutter Handbag Ring. Pros? It’s oh so small and chic with just enough room to house a bank card, some small change – some may say a ‘penny’ and then some… – and my car key. It’s got some pretty darn good hardware on it and a fuss-free tassel. Cons? One just has to wonder which is the best home to store all these bags and keep ’em happy.
Share your bag stories with me in the comments: how do you store yours? Are you a grab-and-go girl or a kitchen-sink-always-inclusive kinda lady? Pray tell…
PS. Of course my current Legacy Penny obsession has nothing to do with the fact Taylor Swift was spotted toting one around a few months ago. Nope. Not at all.
