What Does Your Handbag Say About You?

Now that we've got a woman figured out from her jewelry right down to her jeans and Louboutins, we're moving onto handbags.

How does that saying go? "We are what we….tote"? Maybe that's not exactly right, but you'll certainly agree that what you carry on your arm says a lot about your personality. Your bag of choice announces to the world what kind of person you are. Or at least what kind of person you want to look like.  And even if you don't put that much thought into it, be aware, bags can speak for themselves.

The gal who sports this YSL Artois Tote ($684) is definitely label-happy, but in a conservative way. She can afford YSL and is not afraid to show it. But unlike some of her counterparts, who may opt for more shameless label branding, she chooses to make a bold, stylish statement with a lone monogram.  This modern day Jackie will be using her tote to carry some Chanel sunglasses, a copy of Harper's Bazaar, and a bottle of overpriced Fuji Water. The more budgeted sophisticate might opt for the Kenneth Cole Link-It Tote ($299) instead.

Watch out world! Trendinista alert! The owner of this Chloe Audra Tote ($1584) is one of the cool kids on the block. Whether she's on her way to a hot new club, or entering rehab, this one is always dressed to impress, and her bag is her main accessory.  Inside you'll find Camel Lights, phone numbers from last night's party, and the Blackberry Pearl. Fellow trendsetters might be seen with the Patent Weekender ($75).

This Bottega Veneta Messenger Bag ($1104) belongs to the 'I Hate Bags' bag girl. We all have one in our lives. She hates to be weighed down by a cumbersome purse, but has accumulated too much stuff to go satchel-free. So she opts for the messenger. Inside she stashes only the necessities – keys, wallet, lip balm, and – oh wait – when did a compact become a necessity?  Looks like no-bag girl might be crossing over to the dark side. The Brontibay Paris Bag (was $193, now $96.50) is another great messenger option.

So be aware next time you leave the house with your trusty handbag by your side.  It just might divulge all your dirty little secrets…. without saying a word.   

Tend to go for the oversized bags? Watch out – they could be hazardous to your health.
