Girls have bags right, while boys have pockets. That may have been true once, but times are changing, as Bob Dylan forecast. He picked up a Nobel Prize for telling parents, “Your sons and your daughters are beyond your command, and your old road is rapidly aging”. That applies to fashion and handbags like never before.
In fact, one could argue that shopper bags and totes are really fashion statements. Researchers for Louis Vuitton have discovered the contents of a woman’s handbag can be ‘more expensive than a small car, reaching the staggering value of £3,144”. That’s $3,844 if you have not been across ‘the pond’ aka the Atlantic Ocean when we checked.
Given the potential value of the contents, this begs the question, “So how should a girl, or her obliging escort, carry a bag overflowing with cosmetic cases, e-readers, smartphones, tablets, purses, jewelry and who knows what else”. There is more to the answer than “with a stout strap”. The way a woman carries their bag reveals their innermost secrets.
