Handbag for everyday use

I will choose Handbag over purse because I feel more comfortable with it because it has strap and i can just hook it in my arms or shoukder unlike purse which I feel uncomfortable and it feels like unsafe because its more prone to snatchers and I feel like I might left it somewhere because I forgot I brought a bag.

I wish you could have change the womens purse with backpack and i will surely choose backpack because its more comfortable.

Handbag ~ I Get It From My Momma

My mother had to have a handbag. The handbag had to have several compartments and a strap that wouldn't break easily because she loaded up her handbag with tons of stuff, including a purse. When I started carrying handbags and purses I did the same thing. The thing with me though, unlike my mom, I had a bad habit of putting my purse down and forgetting it when I got up to leave. I wasn't so quick to forget a handbag. As soon as I stood up I would feel like something was missing! LOL.

more space

I think handbags are a bit more practical because you get more space and get to bring around more items whereas with purses you don't really get to put much in it aside from a few emergency items. If there is some sort of formal event I'd definitely go with a purse but for most occasions or regular days I'd much rather just go with a handbag.

Handbag

Purse is for just casual outing but when you have a serious journey that you need to embark on, making use of a Handbag would be ideal for you because it will contain more of your traveling personal items.

I've usually got several things I need to carry

Handbags are more practical in my opinion because often we've got more than just a purse to carry. For convenience's sake, I'd always choose a handbag if that's the case. I like not having to juggle things in my hands!

I need space

The handbag is very useful since I can bring all the things that I need when I am going out. And honestly, I am not a fan of a purse. I am the type of person who brings a lot that is why this kind of bag is something that I want to have. I also prefer to use handbag since it can also match my outfit.

More room

I prefer handbags most of the time. I am the type of person who brings a lot of things with me. I usually just put and put inside my handbag. I also bring water everywhere so I need more space. The purses are only good if you plan only to bring your make up such as lipstick and face powder. It is also easier to carry because of the strap.

Handbag

I would prefer handbag as it may carry a lot more things than a purse. Also, it comes with different styles that could be used on any outfit. I also think that it is convenient as you can carry all your small important things within your handbag. It is very classy and elegant to use.

It depends what you mean

In the UK, a handbag is a handbag like the one pictured. In the US the picture of the handbag is a "purse. However, it is clear the question uses the UK term. I would always choose the handbag as I can put my purse, like the one pictured in this question, in my handbag and all the other things I need. I would not go anywhere without a hairbrush, and my bank cards would never, for safety reasons, be kept in my purse.

My girl brings a lot of things

From her make up to necessities, she carries almost anything you could need of when you needed them. So I am choosing hand bag here. It is already a wonder how she fits everything into it.

Forgetful

I often misplace things so I love crossbody bag. Typically in handbags, you can put a lot of things. It can store your stuff easily. It is practical for people who carry their houses in their bags.

Convenient and Practical

I prefer bags than purse for women. Last week I order 4 piece set bags for women from online shop. I bought it as gift for my sister and for my friends. It's more convenient and practical. They can put more stuff in there than purse. Though in some occasions, purse are more appropriate than bags.

easy to carry

Handbags are among the most useful, dedicated extras in our storeroom. They hold all our everyday things, protecting our resources and not all that assets from nasty climate, harm and burglary — and, by and large, they help finish our cleaned look.

Easier to carry

It is easier to hold handbags than purse. Holding a purse on your hand can be annoying and it is easier to lose it or it is easier to be taken by other people in an instant.

Handbag stands out!

Handbags look stylish and are more suited to women. They bring a classy look and magnify the beauty of the women. Also, they have more storage space and can hence more items. A purse on the other hand, doesn't look good. For women, a handbag is more suited.

It's not expensive.

Cons

It can be stolen easily.
It's not as durable as handbags.

Not heavy

I like bringing purse instead of handbags because it is light and not bulky. I can easily bring it during parties and gatherings. Also, in the place where I live in, there are a lot of pickpockets so I feel more safe if I am holding my valuables. Stuff such as hygiene essentials can be just left inside the car.

This one.

If we are talking about what's more preferable to bring while dressing up, then I would go with purse. I prefer not to bring something bigger or heavier than purse while going on an important occasion like parties. I even just want to have a sling bag in a size of a purse.

purse

A purse is better since it is smaller hence more portable. It will only accommodate the things I need for the specific event hence avoiding carrying around unnecessary items and losing them. It is also very light making it very comfortable to carry with you everywhere.

I prefer small things. Purse are so easy to bring, especially if there is a sling included on that, I just prefer to hang it on my body and move freely while not being conscious if I have forgotten something or not.

I also prefer small things like you and the purse is my usual companion when I am going on an occasion. But for going to the office which I need so many small things on hand, I have to use the handbag. Sometimes when I don’t use a handbag that will be the time that I would be needing what’s in the handbag like the small medicine kit or the sewing kit. Just to be safe with my things, I carry the handbag in going to work.

True, a handbag is not a good option for a night event or a formal gathering. The purse is a classic among the classics for important events or parties. Its rectangular and rigid design always has a small size in which you can only carry the most important things required. There are several types such as an envelope, with a flap or as a cylinder, but they all have the same style.

A handbag is a assertion maker and an outfit game changer. The fashion global commonly talks about investment items. The area in which that clearly holds true? timeless handbags. A properly-selected one actually can last you for all time, and even turn out to be a valuable vintage to be handed down within the family. Right here, we spherical up the bags and types of handbags which can be truely really worth pumping your tough-earned.

Purses are smaller than handbags thus I prefer using the latter. It can hold a lot of important things that I might need like my umbrella or powerbank. I can't fit those in a purse.
Posted by iambeth on 11-19-2018

With an umbrella I think it's justified to carry a handbag but s a powerbank will easily fit unless it is as big as a building stone. I have seen people carry some average sized purses to accommodate such items.

Do not forget that the more the things the heavier it will become and also the more tired the individual carrying it might be. It may even cause their clumsiness.

Handbag vs Female Purse: I am more comfortable to use a handbag all the time specially if I am out of home in more that 1 hour because for me having a handbag with me I am confident to go wherever I need to go. I can bring all stuff I need to when caring a handbag that a girl purse. In purse is was limited, some stuff you used to bring may not fit on the purse so you may left it in home and can cause you regret after

For me, a handbag is like a girl's best friend. I cannot go anywhere without a bag. This is where I keep all the things that I need whenever I go out. I keep my vanity kit, wallet, cell phone, and other things. Without a bag, I feel like I am missing something.
Posted by superlicca on 11-20-2018
Martin
Is is because of the spacing that it has or the fact that a majority of the things that you need to walk around are always inside the bag and hence you just add a few like a phone or any replacements and off you go.

I prefer carrying a handbag because it's big enough for all the stuff I need to bring with me like a coin purse, wallet, umbrella, tissue, cellphone, make up, lipstick, etc. It leaves my hands free for things I need to do and it is also safer to carry in public because it will take more for a bag snatcher to swipe it away from me. I've never used purses alone, not even during parties. It's just too small to be of real use to me on a daily basis.

My girl friends use hand bags because they carry some extra things just in case and ladies do carry all things that they need and I believe useful on a daily basis. I know for a fact that a purse in only for flat thins like credit cards cash and wipes. Some people tend to bring alcohol and that would not fit in perfectly on a purse.

The handbag is my favorite. This type of complement is the most famous and used in everyday life. It is a large and spacious bag, ideal for shopping and it can carry everything you need inside with no fuss. They usually have a flat base, a rectangular cut, and a short handle. Although lately, I have found several models with a long handle to hang from the shoulder.

Of course I like bag. I also like wallet but I can't use lots of wallet. One wallet is enough but when it comes to bag, it serves as fashion so it depends to what I am wearing or where to travel so bag is more important for me as it also depends on the event you I am attending.

I usually bring a hand bag when I am going to work because I have so many personal things to bring. But when I am just going out to the mall or in some occasions, I would be using my purse which is handy and easy to carry. My only concern in going to occasions is my phone that if it fits the purse then the smaller the purse, the better so that it will not be a burden to me in carrying excess baggage.

Women have been known to carry the bags for the longest period now and it is not a culture that is about to end. I think it is something embedded deep in their femininity.

I think that both have different purposes and most women carry both. A purse is carried in a handbag. A pursue is used to put your money and other things like your identification and your bank cards. A handbag is to carry our purse, a book , your makeup bag, water, your house keys, car keys and other essential things you may need for the day. A handbag is convenient for the day because you can fit quite a bit of stuff on it. A pursue is convenient when you go out to the club or go out to dinner at night. You need fewer things.

It really depends on what you are wearing and where you would use it. If you need to bring a lot of things then go for a handbag. If you would just go for a dinner outside like a date, a purse is more suitable. These things have their own uses depending on the situation. Also purse is more classy which makes a woman more sexy for me. it adds up to their whole outfit like it's a part pf their dress or something.

I choose hand bag. I'm a kind of person that I make sure everything is in my bag. I really don't want to borrow stuff to anyone. I make sure i have all my kids need likes wipes, snack, towels, extra shirt and water. I actually bring my purse too, its inside my bag and thats all my personal kit. In short I'm kinda like a girl scout who's ready anytime anywhere.
