Just seen a report on the news (must be a quiet day) about how women are ‘downsizing’ their handbags. Downsizing….hand…..bag…..DO. NOT. COMPUTE.
I have a bad back and shoulders as it is with my enormous Chi-Chis so I have been trying to downsize. I bought the Alexander Wang Coco Duffel Bag which is much smaller than my normal bag thinking it would force me to downsize.
The Wang has metal studs on the bottom so is very heavy on its own plus you can’t put it on your shoulder so all the weight is on your arm and hand. The total weight was 12kg for a fairly small bag! Within a month I had called it quits!
I basically carry 3-4 notebooks, a diary, medium make up bag, camera, ipod, phone, wallet, snacks, painkillers, cream, book and lots of random pieces. Well….you never know when nuclear destruction will occur. My handbag may just save me.
