Hidden Pockets – Be Purse-Free for New Year’s Eve

By Audrey van Petegem, Senior Editor

My husband and I are actually going out this New Year’s Eve. Although we usually do not make a big deal out of the over-rated evening, it is still fun to be a part of the elevated festivities. I dislike taking a handbag out with me on New Year’s because of 1) the inconvenience of carrying it and 2) always being worried about it getting stolen should I leave it on my seat or table when I’m on the dance floor. I have had my husband put my lipstick in his pocket before, but that is the extent of what he is willing to carry for me. So I have discovered three nifty alternatives to a purse and my husband’s pocket.
