The shoulder lady can a be a few different women. The most common is the woman who is used to carrying a lot of weight on her shoulders, so she literally does the same thing with her bag.
The woman who wears a tote bag is the highest extreme. She always has something to do and is often accountable for many things in life. She not only carries her work with her, she also carries anything she thinks she might need. You could find an umbrella or even a pair of heels in her bag. She never has time for anything other than work.
There's also the woman who likes for everyone to think she has a lot going on in her life but she really doesn't. This is the kind of woman who will wear the largest tote but you'll barely see anything in her bag. She often has to find and think of things to put in her bag. She'll probably be the woman who is either concerned with everyone else's business or talks about how perfect her life is.
The Clutch Lady
The clutch lady is either the party girl or is very laid-back. The party girl doesn't see the need for a lot of things in her bag because she enjoys spontaneity and not being prepared. Having to figure out what to do instead of planning for things makes life interesting for her. In her mind, as long as she looks good and can get to her phone, she'll find a way to get out of any situation.
The clutch lady who is very laid-back consistently attempts to live a stress-free life. She's not really into spontaneity but believes that everything will work out so why worry about it? It's the important things in life that matter to her so she only carries a few things in her bag to accommodate for what's important.
The Cross-Body Lady
The cross-body lady is often innovative and likes to simplify things. This woman wears her bag across her shoulders to balance the weight on her shoulders just as she does to manage her stress. She doesn't care if the strap going across her body will take away from her overall look because she doesn't care what other people think, she likes to do things her way and differently.
The Hand Lady
The hand lady is very structured. She is often the perfectionist. She is very focused and spends her time wisely. She only does things that she can do well and spends time with the people that add value to her life. This is why she doesn't mind occupying one of her hands with her bag. She's not concerned with answering unimportant phone calls or being prepared to do different things when going from one place to the next with her handbag. She's focused on quality of her life and not quantity of life. She will use one hand selectively instead of two hands carelessly.
We are all of these ladies at some point in life but which lady are you most of the time? I'm more of a conservative shoulder lady who is often the hand lady and I'm working on being more of cross-body lady.
Do you think you need to change your bag to fit your mindset, keep your relationship with your bag or change your mindset to fit the bag you want to wear? I know there are so many other bag ladies I didn't mention so let me know which ones I've forgotten and if you've seen any of these bag ladies out there. I can't wait to hear from you!
