FIG. 1 is a front view of the embodiment of the present invention

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION

A covering for a purse that may be removed and re-attached to the inside compartment of the purse thereby allowing the external look of the purse to be adaptable to match any outfit. The shape, size and style of the purse is not a relevant feature to this discussion; only the ability to remove and re-attach inside from the outside of the purse. The internal compartment of a purse may contains the usual pockets, zippers, etc., but which is then detachable from the exterior covering as a complete unit which can then be inserted into another exterior covering without any need to remove or change the personal contents of the compartment. The exterior covering would have the basic appearance of any purse. It could have pockets, zipper compartment, flaps, etc. The style, shape and size are not the relative point. This combination of a removable and re-attachable exterior and interior will allow for multiple variations to match any outfit.

DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENT

With reference now to the drawings, and in particular FIG. 3 and FIG. 4 this invention comprises an external covering and an internal compartment which are detachable and re-attachable via various methods. The most likely methods would be by use of connecting zippers or by using rough hook/soft loop fastening strips. Other methods of attachment could include, but are not limited to snaps, buttons and hooks.

Also preferred would be an internal compartment that would be constructed of a clothe material such as canvas because the functionality of this invention by design will make this “purse” endure more use that most. By constructing the inner compartment of clothe it could then be washable. The internal compartment could be constructed of other materials that could include but are not limited to leather and imitation leather.

Also the materials used for the construction of the external covering are limited only by the imagination. Most common examples would be any type of clothe, adorned or unadorned, leather or imitation leather which also could be adorned or unadorned. Also the covering could be of any color. In addition, various handles could be interchanged to match the covering.
