I am not a purse or hand bag person at all. My friend gave me this blue power pochette. I have anxiety issues about carrying a purse or even pochette. I feel like it might get snatched. Well,she is my friend and I would love to return it but she wants me to have it. I really do like it. The first thing she said,was not to regift it. My wallet is in my inside coat pocket. I don't feel comfortable putting it in a purse. What do I put in my pochette tonight. lol.

Great gift, always a nice thought! I today, out of the car, I lost my hat. Too bad, I bought one week ago and paid € 6.50!

I love purses! Totes, satchels, body bags, wristlet's you name it! But maybe if you're afraid some might steal your bag? Maybe.. start off with a cross body bag. You can wear it in the inside of your coat and feel safer? Just a curisoity Have you gotten robbed with a purse before which resulted in anxiety issues with carrying purse? Or just personal preference and you just never liked purses to begin with?

There were a few cases of womans hand bag straps being cut off in crowds. I was robbed of chain off my neck. My brother was robbed of his brand new coat. My nephew was robbed of his new cell phone. I could keep going. lol. I wore the crossbody one today and kept my hand on it.

@sharon6345 Oh no, that is very scary to hear. I would too have anxiety, but a cross body one is the best in my opinion! When you wear the cross body underneath your coat and when you walk you could keep your hand on the bag inside too. Also a belt fanny pack ~ I like those because the belt goes through my jeans and I can hold onto my purse infront with my coat covering so no one can see.

I would put joke stuff in it so if someone steals it they will think they made quite a heist.

Is there room to keep it in your coat pocket.

this is way bigger than my coat pocket. This can only be carried.

It is a lovely present. I feel the same way tho Sharon about carrying purses or what have you. Is why I dont. I carry a waist band so that I wont be robbed under my clothes.

I only carry a small wallet type thing, and hang onto it. I hear so many horror stories, and I can't afford to loose the money, or my credit cards. You can put things like business cards, or just receipts even coupons.

Not sure what you could put into it. Nice gift though.
