Take it from a female, most handbags are way too big for what we put in there. A small clutch is perfectly adequate for sunglasses, cell phones, and wallets, so unless you're lugging around a bowling ball, is there really any reason to carry a bowling ball-sized bag?
Well, here's a satchel that actually makes use of all the extra space: the Bev-Bag Secret Handbag Flask. From the folks who previously brought us the hairbrush flask is this new, monstrous purse that also holds 28 ounces (or a little larger than a fifth) of booze. $36 buys you the mildly stylish, black leather drink smuggling vehicle, plus the benefit of not having to spend $12 on craft cocktails or $8 on craft beers anywhere.
Although, as one Geekologie reader pointed out, at this size, you really might as well just bring the whole bottle.
