You know that one scene in Parks and Rec where Jenny Slate’s character (Mona-Lisa) puts her hand out to her dad and just goes, “Money, please!” and her dad thinks it’s actually cute (and gives her ca$h)? OK, well imagine me doing that to every single brand ever, but instead of asking for money, I’m saying, “Purses, please!” That’s how much I love freakin’ purses, handbags, totes—you name it—so I’m here to be your guide to everything summer bags. This is a very important cause to me, because I know too many people affected by “One Purse Syndrome*.” These victims/friends of mine only carry one single purse all the time no matter what they’re wearing or where they’re going, and I’d love to find a cure, thanks! Maybe with the help of this extensive guide to summer bags, we can all remind them why having options is important.
Jokes aside, I obviously have a thing for bags, and, since it’s summer, I’m especially into purses made for the season. On-trend neon, clear bags, straw bags—wow, there are so many flippin’ summer bags that are so cute, I’m afraid I might max out every single credit card. Can I have a closet made specifically for purses, please? That might be my new life goal. Until then, though, I’ll have to settle for online shopping for summer bags so good, they’ll turn anyone into a bag lady.
