What your Handbag Says About You

Are you addicted to personality quizzes and horoscopes? You don’t have to go to a psychic to learn more about yourself. Your day to day handbag can speak volumes about your personality! Feathered and bedazzled or sleek and chic, massive hobo or tiny clutch: there are a multitude of styles and sizes to choose from. Take a look at the following common types of handbags to see if you recognize yourself in any of the descriptions!

The Crossbody Bag

Whimsical, fun, and willing to mix up your wardrobe with new looks from time to time, you are happy carrying just the bare essentials in your purse. You may enjoy sports or other outdoor activities, and the crossbody bag leaves your hands free so that nothing holds you back from enjoying life with gusto.

The Sensible Satchel

A satchel is a classic handbag, which is just large enough to carry the essentials but still looks smart and polished with just about any outfit. Your satchel may be crafted from buttery leather like these ones at Lyst or a cute floral print, but either way it’s the type of sophisticated item that fits perfectly into your lifestyle. You are probably ambitious, and enjoy fine wine.

The Ginormous Tote

You’re either a mom or a career woman, who needs plenty of space for snacks, changes of clothes, makeup, and maybe even a laptop. You feel more comfortable being prepared for any situation that arises, and don’t enjoy surprises or getting caught off guard. Friends can count on you for always having a spare tissue and wide selection of lip balms to choose from.

The Chic Clutch

You have to be either meticulously organized or free-spirited and spontaneous to get by with just a clutch. Either way, you’re bound to be quite feminine and have an eye for vintage style. Your clutch may fit nothing more than a credit card, keys, and lipstick, or you could opt for a larger style to fit an overstuffed wallet and iPhone. Either way, you don’t believe in carrying around excess clutter, and remain true to yourself.

The backpack-wearer is an individualist, who isn’t afraid to bend the rules a little in the name of making a fashion statement. Using a backpack as your regular purse shows that you are wise to the latest 90’s trends, while being able to appreciate the convenience of having some extra room for your belongings. You may be a student or an artist carrying supplies, or you may be a world traveller. In any case, you enjoy edgier fashion and making a statement.

So what does it mean if you’re the type of lady who likes to have one of each type of handbag? Relax, it doesn’t mean that you have multiple personalities! It probably just means that you enjoy a wide variety of situations in life and have an adaptable, versatile approach to these. And that you have a true passion for fashion!
