I have been carrying a gift with purchase Vicky's Secret barrel-style (no shoulder strap) black microfiber purse lately. Why? Because it is LIGHT. I never understood the runaway appeal of Kate Spade's basic black eponymous purses in NYC. NOW I do and here's why... When you have lots to carry on a long day and you are walking (like they do in the big apple and I do at the Orlando malls), microfiber is the only way to go.
The funniest thing is that I have gotten lots of compliments on my gift with purchase Victoria's Secret Bag. I am on the hunt for a real designer bag that is as light and looks as classic as this one does.
