    Can anyone tell me if there is a specific style/type of purse a female cadet is allowed to carry when wearing the dress uniform? Thanks.

    How could you possibly go wrong with a small black Coach? Just a thought I have NO idea what regulations are, just sayin a Coach would look great!:shake:

    I just looked in the Army Uniform Manual and it looks like it has to be a small black purse, that can close. Bottom of 185, Top of 186. I would have picked out more but I don't know how purses work. :yllol:

    I have never seen a cadet with a purse while in uniform my entire time here.

    Trust me, unless you are in the south, collegiate girls do not carry purses ... civilian or otherwise.

    Well, thank you everyone. That just saved me a lot of money on a useless Christmas gift! Now I'll have to think of something else. :smile:

    I think a Prada will look dandy with the uniform!
