A great bag is so much more than a accessory. For many people, they are an extension of themselves, the glue holding all of the miscellaneous parts of our lives together in one convenient, stylish compartment. But whether you treat your bag as more of a Mary Poppins’ tote-suitcase, or simply just as a fashion piece, your taste in purses can reveal a lot more about your personality than than you’d think!
“I am fascinated by purse behavior,” Patti Wood tells Reader’s Digest. “Purses are a gender identifier: a way to show your status, your taste and creativity, and personality.”
So what does your taste in bags say about you? Pick a bag from the image above and read on to see what you choice reveals about you!
1. Creative Minimalist
If you chose Bag #1, then you’re probably a creative minimalist! For you, less is more, but that doesn’t mean life needs to be in black and white! You appreciate organized simplicity, with a pop of color to keep things interesting. You don’t keep much in your bag, just the essentials, but that’s all you really need.
If you chose Bag #2, then you’re an optimistic idealist. Anyone who has enough confidence and high hopes to keep their belongings in a clutch likes to dream big (albeit, sometimes a bit unrealistically, but still!). You like to try new things and take risks because you’re not afraid to dream big!
You’re the stylish one out of your friend group, always armed with a handbag and a pair of sunglasses while you’re fashionably making your way through the world. You wouldn’t be caught dead without a manicure, and you’re more comfortable running in heels than in sneakers. Your friends might like to tease you for being too impractical, but who cares? At least you (and everyone else) knows you look good!
If you chose bag #4, then you’re a goal-oriented, independent woman with a clear sense of direction. You’re loud, proud, and constantly working towards your goals (all with your trusty handbag at your side). You’re a natural-born leader and you mean business, unafraid to speak your mind; if anything, you have difficulty keeping to yourself.
5. Party girl
The party doesn’t start until you walk in, and you know it. If you chose bag #5, then you’re the social butterfly on your friend group, always excited to meet new people and have a good time. You’re a bit of a night owl (alarm clocks are your sworn enemy), and bubbling with energy. You’re
You treat your bag like a portable suitcase, keeping everything on hand for anything. You’re constantly running around, always on the go with barely any time to breathe. But that’s partially because you like to keep yourself busy; it’s better than being bored!
