Did you hear the news?  Handbags and purses have the same meaning in the United States, but are different in the UK.  A handbag, also purse or pouch in North American English, is a handled medium-to-large bag that is often fashionably designed, often used by women, to hold personal items.  In British English, a purse is still used to refer to a small coin bag.

The term "purse" originally referred to a small bag for holding coins. A "handbag" is a larger accessory that holds objects beyond currency, such as personal items. American English typically uses the terms purse and handbag interchangeably. The term handbag began appearing in the early 1900s. Initially, it was most often used to refer to men's hand-luggage. Women's bags grew larger and more complex during this period, and the term was attached to the accessory. Handbags are valued for their stylishness as visual accessories as well as for their function.  This handbag news guide is about handbags, purses, and sometimes other types of bags.  Yes, on occasion you will find news here about gym bags, travel bags, totes, and other sorts of trendy bags.  You may even learn a bit about fanny packs.  For example, did you know that Joe Rogan is a fan of fanny packs.

A fanny pack (American English) or bum bag (British English) is a small fabric pouch usually secured with a zipper and worn by use of a strap around the hips or waist.
