When we want to finish off an outfit a cute purse and some coordinating girly shoes always seem to tie our looks together. Small bags have been used by women since the 17th century although the term did not come into play until the 1900s. We love the different variations in style from chunky boho bags to petite clutches for summer balls and lavish events. Whether we want to rock a hipster look or formal attire there is a purse that will suit. In the early days a purse would be available in neutral shades and purely served a practical purpose. But today we have a choice of colors and if we need inspiration, there are plenty of fun ideas on Tumblr.
