I didn't carry a bag until last year. No. I kid you not. I carried my ID, lipgloss and cash in pockets. The rest was left in my car, which I always referred to as "my big purse". So, where to begin? Handbag #1 I found this my first handbag, a Chanel, at a second hand shop for $12. My head almost exploded when I saw it was marked at $12. I ensured not to sweat oll over the soft supple leather as I shook my way to the counter and handed over what amount of a bottle of nailpolish to the clerk.
