Do you ever stop to consider what your bag communicates to the world? I’m not talking about the next top brand, or the hottest new trend, I’m talking about your basic style. Are you a crossover kind of dude, or tote kind of girl?
I have been through so many styles of bags for the various chapters in my life. As a teenager I started with a cross-body, I didn’t want to deal with a purse that could not hold its own as I never like to feel slowed down on any adventures.
As I reached college and entered into the realm of great literature and avid journaling only a satchel would do. I was too busy, too enlightened by the great works of Plath, Ginsberg, and Steinbeck to ever leave home without their words nearby for any quick reference I could offer in our scholarly conversations over the small round coffee shop tables.
Back sore from the heavy loads of publications I scaled back through my retail career, choosing only to utilize my rear pockets to hold essential tools, cash, and my cell phone.
But as I had kids, I found women’s pockets would never suffice to carry the necessary diapers, wipes, formula, and the large amount of supplies that come with this new incredible chapter of life. Today, I’m a tote carrying mom, I have stranger gadgets in my purse than Poppins, and the dig for anything truly necessary is a nightmare.
I wonder now, through these phases if others perceived me with these bags as I perceived myself?
