Evening Bags

I'm a purse fanatic! I can go through my closet and weed out clothes, but a purse has to be falling apart at the seams in order for me to get rid of it, and even then I worry about what I did and regret tossing it.

Anyway, here's a sample of my favorite evening bags...

This one only holds the essentials, phone, I.D. credit card and lipstick, but dresses up the simplest of outfits.

This one is vintage and also tiny, but can be thrown inside a larger purse and pulled out as a glam cosmetic bag.

I bought this one for a wedding I went to a couple of years ago, but I use it all the time. I like to wear brown at night because it's a little less harsh than black, ( don't get me wrong, I love black and am certainly not opposed to the lbd...)

This one has been in my closet for years, and I just noticed that the beads are beginning to fall off. Is it a keeper? Should I invest in having the beads restrung? Does anyone have any good tips for care of beaded bags?

Last but not least, this fuzzy evening puff was found at Goodwill for about $2.99. The gold closure on top and the chain were coming off, but the lining inside and the fur are in amazing condition. So I stitched it back together and reconnected the chain...check out how cool the opening is...

Cool pattern...

With purses like this, how can I be expected to get rid of any of them?
