    • hiking in the Rockies
    • lectures/classes
    • organicf chemistry lab
    • picnic and park with kids
    • .....
    Just curious about the carrying habits of the purse fanatics! Name other places and other bags you take along also!!!
  2. The Mall - Normally I will take my newest bag with me , I feel each purse needs a debut at the mall
    The Zoo= Wow good one , I would take either my sig stripe large tote , or my hamptons nylon medium tote
    Grocery Shopping , whatever I happen to be carrying at the moment

    Dinner Date - What ever matchs the outfit
    Movie with the girls - something fun that match my outfit
    Sight Seeing - Which ever is easy to carry on my shoulder - the stripe tote or something like it
    Hiking in the Rockies - umm I would probaly be sitting in the hotel lobby , hiking a mountian is not for me , maybe I would carry a bag that could carry some food and water for when I get lost ;)
    Classes - Which ever one I happen to be carrying at the moment -
    Picnic with the kids - One of my Baskets purses - I would look good with a picinic basket

    After filling this out I think I need more bags ! :graucho:
  3. When I'm out with the kids I take my Gucci diaper bag.
    When I'm with my 5 year old I take a large Gucci or Coach tote or one of my large Coach Ergo's.
    When I'm on a date with DH I tend to carry a small bag, a Coach demi or Gucci small/medium hobo.
    I love satchel's for date and time when I'm out with friends.
    If I were sightseeing in the Rockies I would use my Coach backpack.
  4. For shoping trips, I carry my most exensive bags. I find I get MUCH better service from SAs this way. It's sad, but true.

    For classes, traveling, etc, I use my huge Legacy bucket tote. It was a hand-me-down from my mom who had it in her closet and never used it for 10 years. It is still like brand new and I LOVE it!

    For grocery shopping, dinner, dates, etc, I carry whatever matches my outfit.
  5. What bag do you take along when you are going to:

    The mall--either Carly or my sig stripe tote so I can throw small bags inside

    The zoo--haven't been in forever, but probably a swingpack or soho hobo...something small that I won't get tired of carrying

    grocery shopping--whatever's with me that day

    dinner date--whatever matches my outfit...probably something small

    movie with the girls--whatever matches my outfit

    Disneyworld--definitely a swingpack

    sightseeing in Washington D.C/New York/Denver--probably a swingpack

    hiking in the Rockies--yeah right.....like anyone could get me to hike in the Rockies....

    lectures/classes--large Carly....I try to wear brown as often as possible so I can carry mine until I get a black one

    organic chemistry lab--n/a

    picnic and park with kids--n/a
  6. Haha. I definitely agree about taking the newest bag to the mall.
    For grocery shopping or doing a lot of walking/sightseeing, I just grab my wristlet out of whatever bag I'm carrying that day.
    I'm very matchy about my outfit and my bag so any date or outing with friends, I take usually the dressiest bag that matches my outfit.
    Organic chemistry lab? Anyone would be crazy to take a nice bag in. The smells are so bad and random stuff gets spilled on countertops and eats through (your favorite sweater!!! :cursing:) stuff.

    Great idea for a post!
  7. I dont switch bags daily, so whichever bag I am currently using is the bag I take everywhere w/ me, EXCEPT when I am going someplace ICKY like a pizzeria, the zoo, the park, etc...the I throw some cash, my ID, and a credit card into my mini skinny, attach it to my keys and GO!!!!!! I NEVER leave home w/o my mini skinny...it's ALWAYS in my bag b/c I NEVER know where I may wind up on a given day!!!!
    donutsprinkles and MooMooVT like this.
  8. Whenever I'm going out and about (doing something that will require me to doing other than keeping up with a purse) I take my black leather demi Carly or a wristlet.
  9. Many of my decisions revolve around how many of my kids I'll have in tow with me. If it's just one, I have more options; if I have all three, I'm usually using my crossbody bag.
    • The mall --Whiskey Ali or Ergo
    • The zoo --Crossbody bag
    • grocery shopping --legacy wristlet
    • dinner date --Ali or Holiday Patchwork 2006 shoulder tote
    • movie with the girls --same as above..
    • Disneyworld --never been
    • sightseeing in Washington D.C/New York/Denver --crossbody bag
    • hiking in the Rockies --backpack
    • lectures/classes --n/a
    • organicf chemistry lab --n/a
    • picnic and park with kids --crossbody bag
  10. To the mall and dinner, its always a bag I want to show off. To every where else on the list, it will be a weekend bag that I dont mind if it gets tossed around. Like a Denim Dooney Sac I have, although I really like it and try to take care of it. I consider any Dooney a throw away bag.
