A woman's woman's handbag can be the most essential, dependable, cluttered, dramatic, sensual element in her life. She may rely upon it more than she does upon her sitter or her husband. It can hold more secrets than her most faithful friend.

Her handbag can be as whimsical as beads, fur and straw flowers or as severe as black patent leather.
