Stash in style.
My first example of how great pockets can be is a fresh one, as I just sat down from scoping my house for a place to hide something from my toddler.
So there you have reason number one for having great pockets in a purse – sometimes you need to keep things hidden from tiny, nosy little hands.
Reason number two? It’s so very nice to have an organized bag. And an organized bag is best achieved through pockets. In college I learned the value of assigning pockets certain tasks. I had a huge I mean HUGE backpack with what felt like hundreds of pockets. So to make the best use of it all, I put certain things in certain pockets. It made for a smooth college experience and I would attribute it to the reason I got so many A’s. (Just kidding. That award goes to coffee).
Back to pockets…
I don’t have to continue selling you on them, you know they’re great! I’ve never heard a woman exclaim, “WHAT THE HOSINFEFER…WHY DOES THIS THING HAVE POCKETS?!” Actually…I may have done that once in relation to skinny jeans. Because why are we adding giant thigh-pockets to SKIN-NEE JEANS.
What I do want to turn you on to is where to find bags adorned with glorious said pockets. And that place is Vera Bradley.
The people at Vera Bradley – they get women. They understand that we need a quick access pocket for our phone (aka: chocolate) and that we also want that pocket to be undetectable.
They tap their temples confidently and give us a wink because they empathize with our need to stuff cash, coupons, receipts and Tampons in a safe place without them floating around visibly in our purse.
Their nods and knowing looks are well won because they get us with the multiple pockets on the inside for dinosaurs, hair brushes, snack bars and keys. And as we slow-motion tear through our purse for wipes as our child goes to touch their mouth with hands that have firmly planted on the bathroom floor – they want to subconsciously deliver an calming feeling so they line the purse with a pretty print.
Remember all of these things next time you go purse shopping. Because Vera Bradley people REALLY get women. And I love this bag.
Go see them and their beautiful store in West Town Mall right inside the Charming Charlie entrance!
