It’s About Style, Function and So Much More!

Purses. They’re so much more than just containers in which to carry your wallet, car keys, makeup and such. For many women, function is only a small part of the equation.

These women want their purses to reflect their personality: sparkly or conservative, funky or serious, formal or casual, loud or subtle.

These women want their purses to reflect their unique sense of style: sophisticated or simple, trendy or retro, sporty or classic.

And then there’s the choice to be made as to the type of purse: evening clutch, backpack, casual day bag, satchel, the crossbody, the straw basket…

Melissa Rosko has given this topic some thought. Rosko is a community volunteer who has helped promote Full Circle Adult Day Center’s major fundraising event, Purse-onality, for several years. 

“I think what makes Purse-onality appealing is that women love to shop, and they love purses!” she says. “So, what better way to raise funds and awareness for such a worthy organization as Full Circle Adult Day Center than to provide a wonderful catered lunch and dessert, a silent and live auction of a variety of purses, gift bags and numerous door prizes? No one goes home empty-handed, and we are continually reminded it’s an event that women look forward to each year.”

What Robbie Lamberson Looks For

“The bag of many colors (pictured) is a Poppie Jones, medium-size bag with timeless appeal. I never fail to get compliments on this bag anytime I carry it. It is now 3 years old, and I’m still in love with it. It is one of the treasures I acquired at a Purse-onality auction luncheon,” she said. Lamberson’s other favorite purse is a Longchamp leather bag that was a gift from a daughter. “It has several compartments, so is easy to find things, and its neutral color goes with everything. It is an elegant, classic bag that never goes out of style.”

What Melissa Rosko Looks For

“I’m carrying the chic shopper tote by Consuela for its design and bright colors. I’m always on the look-out for something ‘different,’ yet functional, and this bag doesn’t disappoint. Even the name Consuela means to console, comfort, to uplift … and that just adds to its uniqueness! It came from Purse-onality!”
