The LADY Who Changes Her Handbag when She Changes Her Outfit

“You can define a young girl, a woman, or a lady by the handbag she’s carrying.


A girl will grab a bag and pack everything into it. It [then] becomes a zip code of its own.


A woman will also carry a bag. She doesn’t care what size it is. She’ll wear her daytime shoulder bag with an evening dress.


Then, there’s a the lady. She changes her bag with her outfit. It has a handle which she holds in her hand. She understands the total silhouette she creates, and the role her handbag plays in that. She doesn’t wear a lumpy book bag  or carry a bulky piece of luggage.”
