Saving our planet; one bag at a time

What does your bag say about you?

Australian fashionista and media star Eisman Kathryn, who earlier wrote a bestseller titled how to tell a man by his shoes, has just released a witty sequel called How to Tell a Woman by her Handbag.

Here’s what the publisher’s website (Penguin Australia) says about it.

What does your bag say about you? Does your ‘it’ bag reveal you to be a style-obsessed fashionista who will do anything or anyone to get ahead? Are you the floral straw-bag girl with squeaky clean hair and a heart full of dirty secrets? Perhaps you’re the mink purse-carrying minx who has turned divorce into a profession, or the briefcase-wielding high-flyer whose favourite form of exercise is climbing the corporate ladder?

With forensic precision and cutting wit, Kathryn Eisman helps us to identify our own handbag personas and those of our family, friends and foes. From the ‘I don’t mind being daggy as long as I’m comfortable’ bum-bag lover to the Hermes-clutching-heiress, we are all bag ladies - now it’s time to discover exactly which one.

Sounds like fun doesn’t it?

But when you think about it, the shopping bag people use says a lot about them. With the growing awareness of the harm that plastic bags do, being seen with your shopping in a plastic bag could do serious harm to your public image.
