You Are Your Bag

you are your bag
A friend told me about this saying from the film “Etiquette for Mistresses“. It starts out like this:

Your bag is not just a bag. It’s a status symbol. It’s what distinguishes you from the rest

How true. I guess the same can be loosely said about shoes as well, but not to the same degree. But it’s fair to say that our choice of bag does reflect ourselves. Our choice in the bag we carry reflects our state of mind at that time. Do we go with something big and bold, or something smaller and softer? Are we saying “Here I am world!” with a bright red color, or are we feeling easy and content, with something beige and subtle? Which brings me to the next line:

“You are defined by your bag”

This is how others view you. It’s true we girls dress up for each other, and not for the guys. Therefore it only make sense that the bag we carry should be an extension of the way we dress. That perfect bag, with those perfect shoes, while wearing that perfect dress, will thrust us into the limelight for all to see. Contrarily, choosing the wrong bag will warrant one not worthy of a second glance. Which brings me to the finale of the quote:

“You are your bag”

What else can be said? A bag is much more personal than say a dress. It’s much more definitive than say a nice pair of shoes. Your bag is what will be most remembered of you. It will be the first and last impression made by you. Unfair you say? Maybe. But that’s the way we like. And when we pick the perfect bag, that’s when we absolutely love it.

Sofia Femme chooses to sell bags, that we would buy ourselves. There’s no faceless corporation that tells us what we have to offer. We offer a variety of looks and styles that will fit any look, or mood, you will find yourself in. It’s very personal. And that’s the way we like it.
