I saw this purse trend and went nuts. I always loved the old ‘hat boxes’ and ’round bags.
I do have one of these but it’s a hard hat box I guess you could call it. A family friend gave me it me. (will try to include picture)
The very first picture and Look #3 are my favorites. I used to have a round purse of sorts, sadly I must have gotten rid of it as now I need a bigger one to carry my kindle which I usually have with me, especially if I know there’s going to be a free WI-Fi spot to hand out and relax while on errands.
Though at least one of those noted in the link is over one thousand dollars (really? why would you spend that much on a current trend when likely it will be around for a few months then gone? I swear there should be a cap even on the big expensive brands for fashion items)
Here’s a search Affordable Round Purses, I like the Clock face one best It’s a great price and reasonable shipping)
Here’s another I like though it costs more money but at least it’s not in the hundreds (or thousands seriously?)

Maybe I can understand if its the one and ONLY purse you will have for the next 10-20 years and will work for every season as well along with every outfit you wear but for me that’s a bore! I like cloth during the summer (and spring depending on how the heat and humidity are) and when Its the cooler weather it really doesn’t matter as long as it doesn’t belong on the beach. Though I prefer something black or brown and if it’s leather looking I have no problem as long as its big enough to fit what I normally carry plus I can fit hat, gloves etc in it should it be cold …(so far, we are having a warm winter)
