Happy Sunday Everyone! Some of the other threads and yesterday's UVa game led me to this question. I went to our homecoming game yesterday and wanted to look cute. Of course, to do so I had to carry one of my cute bags-Andrea Brueckner. At any rate- I knew the football stadium would be grubby, so I packed some plastic bags in my purse. When I got there (despite many strange looks, I'm sure) I pulled out the plastic bags (took two, b/c Andrea is long) and encased my purse, so I could put it down under my feet. So my question is- what do you all do to protect your purses when out and about? From the elements, from city grime, from whatever? I know one option is to not take a nice bag, but at the same time why have them if we never use them? I think I've heard some people say they carry the dust bag in their purse for such events. And I think others have said they carry a longchamp bag folded in their purse. So what do you do?
