Do you love handbags? We do.
And with Fall fashions starting to trickle into stores, we just can't wait any longer to show how much we appreciate you! So share a secret with us & enter to win a genuine Dooney & Bourke handbag in the SheSpeaks Member Appreciation Giveaway!*
For some of us, handbags can be an outward sign of fashion savvy or earning power or represent something so deeply personal that we will sacrifice and save-up endlessly, to get just the right one.
But the real function of a bag is to carry stuff around. In colonial days, a woman's role was largely domestic and she carried her few belongings in a little pouch concealed in the folds of her skirt. But as women emerged into the workforce, the need arose for a sturdier accessory to hold her personal effects.
Now it is time to share a little secret!
Besides the daily-survival-kit & weekend-warrior-necessities like your phone, keys, make-up, safety pins, bandaids, hand sanitizers, headphones and umbrella .. .
what is the one thing that everyone who knows you would be surprised to learn is in your handbag?
Tell us in the comments below, and you could be a lucky winner
of one of the Dooney & Bourke handbags pictured here!
One could soon be yours!

Lots of snacks and toys for my 3 year old! We are always running somewhere with his older siblings, and I need to have the necessities available at all times!!
My coupon binder
Hot wheels and my husbands credit card :)
Lip balm, because I never wear it! lol...
They would be surprised to see the can of mace.
Stevia! We rarely eat away from home, but when we do and I order iced tea, I NEVER pick sugar or the pink stuff (or any of the others offered).
I have tons of stuff in my purse. I guess the most surprising might be a ton of coupons.
I have a pocket knife in my bag its got everything I could need including the essential cork screw LOL
Mustard seed and Lavender - to attract money. :)
A shoe shine kit! Leftover from irish dance performance last week! I always carry it in a performance bag, but was going crazy in between functions and threw it in my purse! It's BULKY too! hence it's on it's way back to the performance bag, LOL
Sunscreen in a ziploc bag along with an emergency diaper & wipes for those moments when we forget the diaper bag.
I have eye drops in my bag.
I keep small toys in my handbag even though my Daughter is now an adult. I hand them out to my little Nieces & Nephews when I go visit them.
I have a mini sewing kit in my bag -- and anyone who knows me knows I do NOT sew, ever!
I keep all of my lip glosses and hand sanitzers in a quart sized bag. You never know when you're going to have to board an airplane unexpectly. I wouldn't want to travel withouth my lip gloss.
