Dressed in Red for Awareness

Dressed in Red 3According the the American Heart Association, research has revealed that heart disease was by far the No. 1 killer of women, and actually killed more women than men. It also claims more lives than cancer. To save lives and raise awareness of this serious issue, the American Heart Association launched Go Red For Women and everyone is encouraged to wear red. The red dress has become the iconic symbol of the battle against heart disease in women.

National Wear Red Day® is the first Friday each February.  It is a special day to bring attention to this silent killer of women. We dressed our Sharon Barber Brendi purse, in red interchangeable accessories, for the occasion. We added a Arkansas Razerback lapel pin (not sold by Sharon Barber) for flap decoration, but there are endless possibilities, of decorative clips, to give it any look.

Everyone is encouraged to wear red, raise their voices, know their cardiovascular risk and take action to live longer, healthier lives.

Read more about the movement and be sure to wear your red.

The Purse – Humor Alert

I Miss My Mind.A cute relatable joke for many of us baby boomers:


While on a car trip, an old couple stopped at a roadside restaurant for lunch. The old man unfortunately left his glasses on the table, but didn’t miss them until they were back on the highway. By then, they had to travel quite a distance before they could find a place to turn around.

The old woman fussed and complained all the way back to the restaurant, telling her husband that he is getting too forgetful and needs to be more responsible about his things.

When they finally arrived, as the old man got out of the car to retrieve his glasses the old woman said, “While you’re in there, you may as well get my purse, too.”


And, as Ozzy Osbourne expressed it, “Of all the things I’ve lost, I miss my mind the most.”

A New Designer Purse and a Margarita

New Designer PurseAll of us women have had those ups and downs, the bumps in the road of life. Whether it is a break-up in a relationship, or our purse was stolen, or any kind of disappointment, no two people deal with loss the same way. But for everyone it does take some time.  However, you can have a little diversion by buying something nice for yourself, such as a cheerful new purse. Be sure to splurge on a good quality purse and therefore you will not be sorry for your purchase later.

A margarita may not be your style and that’s quite alright, whatever floats your boat and cheers you up, but we highly recommend a new designer purse. If you already own a Sharon Barber designer purse, all you need are some new interchangeable accessories for it. How about a leopard print wrap and strap with a twisted copper decoration clip?

Keep your chin up buttercup! Time is a great healer.

Choosing Comfortable Fashion

Fashion TasteMost women and girls like to be fashionable, or at least look their best. Comfort and your taste in fashion are equally important when shopping for your wardrobe. If our clothes don’t fit and feel right, we may wear them a few times, but chances are, they will just be hanging in the closet more than the comfortable fitting clothing we own. Many times they are not even worn at all.

Just as comfortable clothing is important, fashion accessories and the fit and feel of them makes a big difference in how much we use them and get our money’s worth from them. No matter how desirable and expensive that “it bag” is, it needs to be a comfortable purse to carry as well. There are many fashion accessory choices that are both comfortable and fashionable.

On-line shopping is great, but try your clothing and fashion accessories on as soon as you receive your packages. Return them promptly and unused, if they are not a good fit for you.

We, here at Sharon Barber Purses, love Gilda Radner and love this quote from her.

“I base most of my fashion taste on what doesn’t itch.”  ~Gilda Radner
