Red is such a rich color and your eye is instantly drawn to it. It is a powerful color and very desirable in women’s fashion. Women that do not feel comfortable wearing a dress or complete outfit in the color red, would be better off to choose fashion accessories to add to their neutrals or prints. A red belt, red scarf or red purse would give you the same eye appeal without an overload of the color.
Red excites the emotions.
Red motivates us to take action.
Red attracts attention.
Red denotes strength.
Red is energizing.
Red is confident.
Sharon Barber Purses celebrates International Women’s Day by recognizing that every women and every girl, no matter where they live, has the ability to make a positive impact on their family and on society. Women and girls all over the world have the ability and they should have equal rights in their families, work place and politics. Trail blazers have made the way to bring about changes and rights for many of us, but there is still a long way to go.
International Women’s Day, the 8th of March, originally commemorated the working rights protests led by female garment workers in the United States. It is now a world-wide celebration to commemorate the advancements made in human rights and to discuss the challenges women continue to face in politics, education, employment, and other areas of daily life.
Happy International Women’s Day!
“Work expands so as to fill the time available for its completion” is the first sentence of a humorous essay published in The Economist in 1955, by Cyril Northcote Parkinson. It has become known as Parkinson’s Law. We’ve all experienced this, putting off until the very last minute to accomplish something.
Just as work expands to fill the available time, stuff expands to fill the available space. If you have a large purse, you will fill it up. The contents of your purse will expand to fill all available space in your purse. Use the smallest size purse possible and keep only what you need there. You don’t need to carry everything with you everywhere you go. Lighten your load.
Fun and whimsical Dr. Seuss (aka, Theodor Seuss Geisel) published 46 children’s books in his lifetime. He was both whimsical and smart. His children’s books characterized imaginative characters with rhyme, and the frequent use of anapestic meter.
To honor his birthday (March 2) here are 10 gems from his many quotable lines. His words were aimed at keeping little girls and little boys – and the rest of us women and men awake to all the best that our world has to offer.

“You can’t make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear” is something that you might say which means you can not make a good quality product using bad quality materials. Or, to produce something refined, admirable, or valuable from something which is unrefined, unpleasant, or of little or no value.
Our featured cobalt blue silk purse, with interchangeable purse silk accessories, is the real deal. Quality materials and final products are very important to us here at Sharon Barber Purses. Silk is a desirable material in fashion. The gorgeous fabric has been a runway staple for ages, used by many fashion designers, such as Dior, Chanel, Lanvin, just to name a few.
Silk is a natural fiber. It’s both renewable and biodegradable made from silkworms (not a chemical-based synthetic process like most other mainstream materials). Knowing that you choose to purchase earth friendly fashion / eco fashion makes splurging on that one-of-a-kind silk purse a little less painful.
