So I believe that we all have certain criteria for handbags. Perhaps even if we like the look of a handbag, we won't buy it because certain features don't agree with us. For me there are three ultimate deal breakers: 1. Contrast Stitching I loved everything from the Lovely MbyMJ line because it was reminiscent of MJ Tere line, but I can't stand non-tonal stitching e.g. 2. Patent I generally think all patent is tacky. I have one pair of patent heels that made me open my mind a bit. I might have to consider this bag: 3. No Shoulder Strap The only bags that break this condition are evening clutches. Every single other bag I own has a big enough drop for shoulder carrying. I carry to much weight to not use my shoulder. I know my mom's only criteria is that a purse must be divided into two or more sections. I don't need that, although it can make life easier. So, what are your deal breakers?
