You'd probably have better response on a Purse Forum...

I'd probably want a Chanel GST; caviar leather w/ silver hardware

It would probably be a Coach, I'm partial to them, although I do like Fendi as well.

Drivers License, credit card, and small bills in pocket. Phone in pocket. Key fob in pocket. I don't need to carry any of the rest. Water and sunglasses stay in the car (no need to carry them anywhere).

I think Stan4 is female....pretty sure.

FWIW, I am a female, and I don't see the need for a purse either! Everything I need can fit in my pockets. If it does not fit, I don't need it.
I don't drive often, maybe once a week. All of the things I need and want need to stay with me. My hands get dry really fast, hand cream is a necessity. I even bring some in an evening bag. Same with lip balm. I have real keys and I have 3 for my apartment: front door, my door and garage. I also need to carry my desk keys and I keep my bike lock keys on my main key ring. The fob stays home unless I drive.

I rarely see clothing with pockets and I wear mostly dresses and skirts. Few can fit my iPhone 6, you have to be SOL if you have a 6 plus or other mega phone.

Agree, I bring headphones and my kindle if I am taking a long transit ride. We also have 3 seasons in one day so I pack scarves and cardigans! Maybe if I drive everywhere I could get a smaller purse but that's not my life at all.

Whatever that most expensive one is, that is what I would want. And then I would sell it of course.

No freaking way would I spend that much of my own money on a handbag.

I can't imagine NOT having one. Phone, keys, work entry card, wallet, glasses, small makeup bag (lipstick/blush/mascara), pens, knife (I've carried one since I was 14) nail file, floss, chap stick,and pretty sure I've left a couple of things out. When I leave the house in the morning, I don't come back home for about 13 hours most days. I need my ***** with me.

Clearly you have never been mugged or you would think twice about flashing around a bag that is worth that much money. And, no, muggings don't only happen in bad neighborhoods. I've had my purse stolen more than once, most memorably in front of a church in a wealthy residential neighborhood.

I probably have a dozen or so Balenciagas (weekender, works, PT, cities and clutches.) Right now the bags work for me. They take my abuse really well and can hold quite a bit. Plus I like their casual look.

I do like a bunch of Hermes bags (and not just Birkins & Kellys), but they just don't fit my lifestyle right now. The ones I like are too structured.

I've been eyeing some Chanel bags for going out and such, but I feel like they're too obvious.
