“Most women would feel naked without their handbags.” -Dailymail.co.uk
There are loads of reasons why women have a close affinity with their bags. You may think it’s just another addition to a woman’s overall style or maybe just another fashion statement. Although it may seem as a luxury item with brands like Hermès and Louis Vuitton making loads of bucks from women with outrageously priced arm candies, a handbag is actually a necessary survival kit. Think of it as a woman’s style first aid box.
Without a handbag or purse, where would a woman puts all those items she can’t live without. The only thing more important than a woman’s arm candy are the candies she actually puts in them.
