People often ask whether I’m more of a bag or shoe person. I always find this hard to answer because as a girl, I like them both! However, if you make me choose, I’d say bags. Judging from the amount of handbags I have compare to shoes, I guess I’m more of a bag kinda girl. Lucky for me, most of my girlfriends here share the same interest. Out of curiosity, I recently started to observe and to connect between bag styles and personalities. After some careful considerations, I have come up with my own conclusions. Now since I am no psychologist, this article is made based on my personal assessment and for the sake of having fun. Hope you find this enjoyable : )
1. Juicy Couture Gen Y Bow Tote. US$88. 2. Michael Kors Leather Tote. US$198. 3. Kate Spade Fox Chapel Tote. US$295.
I realized that most of my bags are totes and I think the reason why I love them is because not only are they spacious but also fun and casual. Whether they’re made out of leather, canvas or polyester, they tend to give me a laid-back feeling. Tote works best when you often find yourself in a hurry (I find myself shoving stuff inside my tote all the time because I don’t have time to carefully organize everything, especially when I’m shopping ; ) Oh, tote is also a perfect and stylish way to carry your laptop. I do this all the time, too : )
1. Steve Madden Bdanity Satchel. US$88. 2. Elliott Lucca Roma Satchel. US$198. 3. Guess Groovy Box Satchel. US$118.
The secret lies on short handles that allow you to carry them firmly. Some prefer to circle it around their arm for extra presentation, making it a perfect arm-candy. Another thing about satchel is that most of them are completed with extra shoulder strap, in case your hand is tired from carrying all those essentials. This is my second favorite when it comes to handbag style. Plus, satchel is not just for women, men can get away with this, too!
1. Fossil Emory Clutch. US$65. 2. Rebecca Minkoff Rocker Clutch. US$330. 3. Topshop Padded Heart Clutch. US$45.
The reason why I think clutch = practical and efficient is because people who carry clutch as their daily bag would pack only the essentials such as purse, phone and lipgloss. Very practical and totally efficient. I like going out with clutch from time to time because tit’s less hassle and I feel more free.
1. Guess Fallon Hobo. US$125. 2. The Sak Olema Hobo. US$89.99. 3. Betsey Johnson Acid Rose Hobo. US$148.
Hobos have become one of the most popular handbag styles. 2 handles for 2 styles, carry them in your hand or just hang them on your shoulder. Either way, you would still look stylish and relaxed because they go with almost all types of clothes. Most of my girlfriends prefer hobos for these 2 particular reasons; easy-styling and relaxing.
1. Calvin Klein Exclusive Bag. US$57.99. 2. Brighton Jet Set Bag. US$210. 3. Marc Jacobs Lizzie Bag. US$258.
There’s nothing more sporty and sassy than having a cross body bag. This is my choice whenever I’m traveling, I don’t have to worry about having too much stuff in my hands or having pain on my shoulder because this type of bag distributes the weight evenly to your body. I suggest you to choose this when you plan on having a trip or adventurous travel! You’ll find it much more easier to move.
So what do you think? Am I close? Let me know your thoughts! I hope you have fun reading it as much as I did writing it : )
