You are judged by the purse you carry, I know, it's a harsh world, but it's true. Purses and shoes appear to say a lot about your attention to detail as opposed to "I just threw this on". Sometimes we get so used to doing things every day that we neglect to really see ourselves and the image that is projected by our appearance.
I am surprised when I see a purse that has a handle that literally is shredding with threads hanging off in great heaps. It looks absolutely dreadful and conveys nothing but a complete disregard of attention to detail. I know that we are all rushing about trying to accomplish so much each and every day but STOP, take a breath look at what you are carrying around with you. Buying yourself a new handbag can be a lovely action of self-esteem.
