Verbage


When did handbag become the word to use?? I used to use purse, but after working in top fashion, I realized that that was not a professional fashion word:) What else could you call the piece that you carry around all day with everything you need...pocket book, but, isn't that country...what else is there and do you think that purse is inappropriate:)

Well, here in the UK, a "purse" is the thing you carry your money in, like a wallet, so it always sounds strange to me to hear "purse" used to describe what I would call a "handbag". But then, it's the UK, we talk funny. Sorry, I'm no help at all, am I?
