To the fashionably discerning, handbags are more than just something to carry your personal belongings. A handbag is more than just an accessory. It is all that and more. A well-crafted designer handbag is a fashion statement. The sort of handbag you carry says a lot about the type of woman you are and sets you on a definite cut above the rest.
