Is Your Handbag Too Bulky For You?

I read an interesting article last week. The writer was lamenting about women carrying handbags that could easily fill a 10-pound bowling ball. I start to think? Is my handbag really too bulky for me? How about you? In fact, the article states that lugging around with a heavy handbag could be detrimental to your health.

What's the fuss about?

So I made a comparison of women carrying a big, bulky handbag against sales personnel of various industries who go round pulling chunky bags on wheels. As if those weren't heavy.

I know and you know that women love carrying large handbags. We need to store our other "don't leave home without it" items. Seriously, I don't know what you got in there but I always carry my management diary, a PDA phone and sometimes and extra blouse and a foldable umbrella. Do you take these items out of your handbags once you reach home? I doubt it. You'll need it the next day and you wouldn't want to clutter your bed space.

Carrying large handbags is absolutely fine and I think those who carry small handbags or purses might as well carry their wallets at the back pockets of those tight jeans. It feels weird not to have anything much in the handbag we carry daily as well. What if it rains?

Another friend of mine, being a bookworm that she is, often is seen popping out a romance novel from her Gucci handbag. What else can you think of? Bottled water, sweets and their wrappers, make-up kits, purse etc. It is not too much is it? So I guess no handbag is too bulky for any women.

Weight does not matter at all if we can exude style when carrying our favorite handbag. So much more if it is a designer handbag. Think Coach, Gucci, Prada etc. So if you think your handbag is too bulky for you, think again. Would you sacrifice weight for style and whatever it brings with you?
