So how do I go about choosing my handbag ?
How to choose my handbag: it’s a tough task! (but actually a pleasant one…)
To conclude, here is our advice: start by scrapping all these images and mainstream visions. Then take a good swing with your handbag at your whole style like you would at a snatch thief trying to grab it. Give no quarter.
Look, get tapping on those smartphone screens, that’s right, read up, and keep going, to get an idea of the bag that inspires you and find it.
Observe it, scrutinise it: how can it be worn, how does it hang from your shoulder or fit into your arm … And beside you on the couch, what’s it like? And hung near the coffee machine? And on my chair at the restaurant for Valentine’s Day?
Feel its leather, sense it, admire its tiniest detail down to the interior finish, even if you know you are incapable of keeping anything in it tidily, nor putting your smartphone in that great little pocket so thoughtfully provided.
That’s it, you’re finally ready. It’s the “do I or don’t I” moment. Don’t let this chance slip by:
“Do I or don’t I?”
So above all make a choice: dare to go for it!
And that’s when you’ll see the magic start to happen, a cascade of incredible emotions will sweep over you thanks to this unique bag: people will stop you in the street, conversations will start up, sometimes brief and pointless, sometimes long and intense, others are finally going to talk to you about yourself and not your bag, they will tell you that you are gorgeous or handsome, that’ll make you smile, you’ll scoop the jackpot, you will be immersed in a warm glow of optimism, overwhelmed by happiness: no-one will ever again talk to you about self-confidence because you will be confidence personified: ah, but what great form you are in this morning with that bag of yours!
And afterwards? Afterwards make yourself the ambassador for the (really) creative brand you have discovered and which stays forever by your side. You must always “like” but never “follow”.
Because you’re worth it, as we say at L’Oréal, or rather, because you’re worth (so much) more.
