The inspiration for my Phoebe Bag is Phoebe Buffay from the "Friends" tv sitcom. Phoebe is funny and stylish and conscientious. She is bright colors and simplicity. In this episode, Ross asks if anyone has gum, and Phoebe searches her large purse and finds everything but gum in a hilarious way that only Phoebe could pull off. After being unsuccessful, she makes reference to a "big bag" that I imagine as this:
I wanted it in lots of different colors - so this is just one version. It's absolutely huge and has a big pocket and loose hobo style with a cute tied shoulder strap.
