Some quick handbag tips
1 - Always carry a purse or handbag which is in proportion to your body size. Example: Very petite carry a small handbag not a large over powering handbag.
2 - If you do not have a handbag to match your shoes, carry a black handbag; this is basic, though some fashion designers disagree that belts and shoes have to match so it doesn't really matter just as long as the ensemble looks good.
3 - If you are a stickler on being organized, acquire handbags that have pockets, compartments and/or purses that have built in sections that will hold sunglasses, cell phones, keys, change, and etc.
4 - Clutch bags are fashionable, however, they can jeopardise your safety. You could be an easy target for a purse snatch or it can be easily lost.
5 - Always keep your handbag with you and hold close to your body. Purses have been stolen from grocery carts, snatched from behind or even straps have been cut from the shoulder.
Authentic Designer Handbags - The Psychology of the Status Handbag
In fashion, its the little things that mean a lot, says Farid Chenoune, who put together a book entitled 'Carried Away - All About Bags' and an exhibit at the Musee des Arts Decoratifs in Paris. 'If you take a little object like this one (a handbag), youll put together a lot of stories of what life is, what power is, religiosity, what men's and women's relationships are - and it's all fashion, too.'
The importance of the purse extends beyond what we consider traditional authentic designer handbags, according to Chenoune. Purses are a part of our psyche and include bags holding knuckle bones depicted in Egyptian wall paintings dating from 430 B.C. The list also includes wizards bags holding ingredients of power, doctors bags, and religious bags. The similarity between a high end authentic designer bag and a satchel belonging to an African witch, he explains, is that both bags hold a secret and can represent power.
'What you put in your bag is very important to you. That makes a bag very personal, because in it you have a secret. A secret gives you some sort of power. Traditionally, for a woman, a bag holds the things you need for the day, but its also your little beauty factory, which is very important to the identity of the woman' Chenoune says.
Of course, authentic designer handbags have been taken to new heights in the designer era, with top fashion companies adorning bags with logos and other signs of luxury, such as skins and fur. A recent auction at Doyle New York featured a black crocodile Hermès Birkin, customized with a clasp and lock featuring 14 carats of pave diamonds, that sold for $64,800. Whereas the inside of one's bag is supposed to be personal and intimate, the outside is a virtual advertisement of ones place in the world, Chenoune observes. This became emphasized at the end of the 18th century, when women shifted to the neoclassical style of dress, he explains. 'The outside pocket became the modern bag, and by 1920, it became a symbol of womens independence. It said she could go where she wanted to go, and didnt need a man because he held all the possessions,' Chenoune said.
Designer handbags run the gamut from the delicately beautiful Judith Leibner bag To the elegantly simple Fendi, but, regardless of its size and shape, its a little piece of luxury that is within reach of most women and shouts to the world that this woman knows quality!
