At Wikipedia I found this version for purses, handbags, and some vintage bags noted to everyone. A handbag, also a purse or pouch in American English is a handled medium to large bag that is often fashionably designed, typically used by women, to hold personal items such as wallet/coins, keys, a mobile phone, books, a pen and paper, cosmetics and jewelry, a hairbrush, contraceptives, or pepper spray.
The term "purse" originally referred to a small bag holding coins. In British English it is still used to refer to a small coin bag. A "handbag" is a larger needed accessory that holds items beyond currency , such as a woman's personal items and emergency items to survive on. American English typically uses the terms "purse" and "handbag" interchangeably. The term "handbag" began to appear in the early 1900s. Initially, it was most often used to refer to men's hand luggage. Women's accessory bags grew larger and more complex during that period, and the term was attached to the women's accessory. Handbags are used as fashion accessories as well as functional ones.
Like I tell many people I am carrying my mini suitcase with me, and it gets quite heavy at times too. I need my pens, notebook, wallet, checkbook, coupon organizer, address book, perfume, and in my zipper pouches of course some lipstick, lip liner, little mirror, some facial powder, and well....you know.....a mini suitcase. Only thing not in it is a change of clothes, and shoes.
