You tuck your tote securely between your arm and body


You’re careful and practical, and when it comes to meeting new people, it takes time for you to warm up and give your trust. You’re very observant of your environment, which makes you one of the most street smart people you probably know. The only downside to that is your wariness can get the best of you, which sometimes develops into unwarranted suspicion.

You settle your cross-body bag in front of you.


ILLUSTRATOR Charlene J. Owen

You’re a very busy woman, and you want your hands free as much as possible. You don’t really like lugging around clutches or heavy totes, but you still want your stuff to be secure and easy to reach. If you’re not running circles around people with your sense of purpose, then you’re probably happily traveling somewhere far away, so it’s a must that your bag is sturdy and secure.

You carry a small sling bag that hangs freely from one shoulder


ILLUSTRATOR Charlene J. Owen

Your spontaneity shows in the size of your bag and how you nonchalantly let it swing on your side. You don’t like being encumbered by a lot of things, so you only bring the necessities. While you don't really care much about brands, you look into quality and you like paying for what you get, especially if it reflects your creative personality. While your light and chill attitude is great, you also need to be more aware of your surroundings—just in case you leave your bag’s zipper open.

You carry your satchel from the crook your elbow


ILLUSTRATOR Charlene J. Owen

You’re all about elegance and style. Prestige is your thing, and while people may think that you’re too high maintenance, you simply know what you want and what you deserve—and you can get these things for yourself. Besides, carrying a bulky satchel on your shoulder isn’t that flattering in photos, and someone like you would always want to appear very well put-together.
