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!

I carry a pocket knife in my purse
I keep a notepad in my handbag to keep track of stuff I buy or lists I need for recipes, just whatever. Its kind of old school but. i like it.
In my bag is a small container of sun screen, I never know when I need some so I always keep it handy
I always keep chocolate in my bag, and multiple types of lipstick, lipgloss, and lipliners.
my grand-daughter would say--she has allergie pills in her purse...
Whatever my daughter throws in my purse. One day I found a rock - she was walking, saw it and thought it was pretty so she picked it up and shortly after put it in my bag. It makes me smile when I open my purse and see her things in there.
love the snakeskin black, fingers crossed. and probably surprised i have a bag of stones in there, lol
I have a small compact with makeup...blush, eye shadow and lipstick. But I hardly ever wear makeup and probably only used this twice.
I have a swiss army knife in my bag
