What Your Handbag Says About You?

We all have them, a favorite handbag, our go-to in the closet. When it is time to replace that bag, we tend to go for something similar, something we are comfortable with. This is known as your handbag “type.” I switch from a tote to a hobo, and while I buy a lot of clutches, I always seem to forget I have them. Everyone has a type and what bag you choose says a lot about who you are and what you do. Find out what your handbag says about you!

    You are a woman on the go and need a bag that fits that life. You need to carry everything you need for work, an extra pair of shoes, an outfit change, a small horse, etc. Basically, life is overflowing but you are prepared. Just remember to breathe every once in a while so you don't get overwhelmed.
