Your Personality? IT’S All In THE BAG!
Did you know the way you carry your handbag reveals all your innermost secrets? OK, maybe not all of them, but it does tell others more about you than you might think…
William Shakespeare once wrote that ‘the eyes are the windows of the soul’. Sure, the guy had a way with words but, if you ask us fashion types, handbags reveal more about you than a gaze ever could (soz, Will). However, the bag you choose isn’t your only identifier – it’s the way you carry your arm candy that really gives the game away. The big question is, does your toting style match up with your personality? There’s only one way to find out… Arm Crooker the a-list method of choice, you wear your bag like a badge of honour – a reflection of your self-affirmed status. you’re confident, cool, stylish, and always a step ahead of the pack. be careful, though; your ego and your massive tote might not fit through the door if you get any more compliments.
unless you’re dynamo, this can only be done with a cross-body. the woman who wears hers to the front could be shy or ‘comfortable in her own company’ (ie keen to avoid unnecessary interaction). that, or doesn’t mind her outfit taking second place to her bag choice.

Favoured by girls constantly on the go (think frenzied street style stars before Chanel’s show), this vibe is all about ‘i’m too busy to actually wear my bag’. you’re more concerned with its contents and having swift access to even the most inner of pockets, meaning you’re goal-orientated.
whether it’s two, four or six, handle hoarders all agree one bag is never enough. Chances are a crossbody houses your essentials, a tophandle your laptop and a rucksack your gym kit. you find it hard saying no, which means you’re probably the busiest person in the office. but you always get the job done.
Lugging a tote is exhausting and cumbersome. we therefore bow down to the women who need no handbag for their basics. Forget hoarding receipts, two hairbrushes and 45+ lipsticks; you only require a phone, credit card and a handy pocket. superiority comes with the territory, but that’s no bad thing as far as we’re concerned. go get ’em, lady.
