Ever wish you could make your own purse? I know I do! I keep searching for that ‘perfect handbag‘ but everything falls a little short. Recently I’ve loved the shoulder strap style of of one bag, or the outside pocket on another. I really liked the inside pockets for organization in yet another bag. Finally, there’s the perfect shade of vegan leather. It’s hard to find a bag that meets all of those requirements and is well made!

The base bag shape that I like, that’s close to perfect, is the Perlina Devon Tote. It’s a great shade of purple and great basic shape. The shoulder strap from the Betsey Johnson Wash Out Hobo looks really neat. The outside pocket on the Volcom Candy Shop handbag would work well with the faux pocket on the Devon. The Amy Michelle Zebra Tote has a lot of interior pockets for organization. If only they could be rolled up into one bag!

What about you? If you were frankening your own bag, what would you create? What features are important to you?

I have nothing to disclose except my lust for the perfect handbag, preferably without neck bolts.
