The Man Purse
I am totally into man purses. I seriously think they rock and they’re all the rage here in France. I swear at least 75% of all guys have one. I’ve even seen little boys wearing them, and by that I mean like 10 years old!
A guy could get beat up for wearing one of those to school in the states!
Every time I see a guy sporting one, I just die laughing. It kills me to see it.
I have to admit that at first I just couldn’t get into it. It was too weird. Like, “not very manly” weird. Now, since I have seen it so much over the last 9 months I’ve gotten use to it and even dig it. Yah call me crazy. A girl can change her mind, can’t she? In fact, I now think it’s odd to see a guy NOT wearing one!
I’ve even been trying to get Dude to sport one. So far, he’s not going for it, though. Coming from SOCAL, he has a totally different opinion because there, you are not a real man if you’re wearing a purse! I’m on it, though. He might just end up getting one for a present 🙂
Just the other day, I was walking into my office building and it was after hours. I had my sunglasses on and right as I got to the building door a cool looking guy walks out sporting his man purse. I was all, “That’s so awesome!” and he looked at me and said “Bonjour” and smiled. Then I took off my glasses and was completely embarrassed because it was in that moment that I realized he was my accountant!
So not cool when caught eyeing the man purse of my accountant….
