I don't carry a bag if I can avoid it. I generally try to get by with just a wallet, in the back pocket of my jeans or slacks (it's really frickin' hard to find dressy women's pants that include a back pocket, however, so occasionally I have to find something else). Failing that, I put my wallet in a jacket/coat pocket.

Failing that, I grudgingly carry a bag. I have one mini-backpack (olive drab and tan) that serves as a purse, and I have a "purse" that's also olive drab canvas and tan suede (and has a flap and is kinda miniature-messenger-bag-ish, so it doesn't feel too girly).

Plus I have my dance bag, which is occasionally my overnight bag when I have to take a 1-2 night trip and don't need my suitcase. It's a black canvas bag with a shoulder strap and shorter handles, and it's purely functional. Usually it's got zills, a veil, a couple of hipscarves, my dance makeup, and whatever costuming and music I need for a particular gig.

With all my bags, I use one strap over the shoulder (with the mini-backpack, the strap(s) can be zipped together into a single strap, or unzipped into two... I almost always use it in one-strap form).

I don't like "feminine" bags and purses and have tried to avoid them, but mine probably aren't masculine either, and they're definitely not accessories. They're just functional.
