The Shield

With the handle in the crook of the elbow the bag is in front of the body like a shield. You want to show what you have and feel strong, but maybe also a bit vulnerable at the same time. However, you are a fighter and you can handle almost everything – even with only one hand free.

Under The Arm

You are always in a hurry and don’t really have the time to think about how to carry your purse so just casually squeeze it between your torso and your forearm. Because you are a bit messy you like it uncomplicated and keep your hands free. What other people think about your look does not bother you too much – that’s why you are simply stylish!

No Bag At All

Yes, it is said that there still exist some women who don’t need the accessory in their everyday life. This kind of ‘nudity’ indicates a very self-confident personality. Having so much going on, like plans, projects, ideas and other undertakings, you need to be capable of more than what a bag could give to you!

In Front Of The Body

Holding your purse in front of your body, you are not really sure what to think about the situation you are currently in. With both hands on the bag you want them to be occupied and make them a border between yourself and your opposite. Either because of shyness or self-defense – you know what you want, and what not.
