It’s been said overtime that a woman’s purse says a lot about her personality and it’s not just about the brand of the bag or how expensive it is, its more about the type of bag, what she has in it and how she carries it that can reveal the most about her personality. Below are a few bag types and what they say about you:


The tote signifies the kind of woman who is constantly on the go and needs an accessory that will help her fit everything she needs to go about her life. Whether it’s an extra pair of shoes for a quick change after work or even a whole new outfit, the tote has got your back and you’ll never run out of much needed space.


The hobo bag is perfect for that special kind of woman for whom not even a tote is big enough to satisfy. The vast space available in a hobo means that you are an inspirational and confident woman with a have-it-all attitude. Why should you have to leave any accessories at home when your bag can accommodate them all?


This woman is a lover of adventure and is willing to try new experiences. It’s a perfect choice for those who are still playful and young at heart. She most likely has a creative job that requires her to bring her own laptop to work.


She’s classy but simple. Perfect for a woman who doesn’t need a big statement to look stylish. Clutches aren’t famous for their capacity, so if you are the kind of girl who only leaves the house with her phone, lipstick and some cash, then this is for you.


The cross body is the bag of choice for the modern style conscious and essentials only type of lady. No room for a change of shoes or new outfit here, so a cross body bag wearer is usually a practical kind of girl who is already wearing exactly what she needs without having to carry alternatives.


The satchel is an organised bag for the professional woman. She is somebody who is perfectly adept at balancing her personal and professional lives and achieving great success in both.


Perfect for a woman who absolutely lives for the weekend. Whether you are popping down to the local market or running important errands, the shopper bag allows you to complete all of these tasks whilst still looking effortlessly stylish.


The bowling bag is a great choice for women who like order and simplicity in their lives. A solid and structured bag for a woman who adheres strictly to the appointments written in her planner.


The fanny pack is the perfect accessory for women who are simple and carefree  – Why carry the burden on your shoulders when you can have all your essentials resting right there on your hips!
