How to Choose Your Handbag According to Body Type

Not all handbags suit all body types! What’s the right handbag according to body type? Here are some tips to make sure you never go wrong with bags again!

Hey girls! It’s been raining and raining in my city! Lots of areas around me are flooded and I’m barely able to check my email! So please pray for Chennai. Why am I still writing on fashion though? Because A. This is my work and one works until one can. B. I want to feel positive and work makes me feel positive because I love my work. And C. Just because my city has floods doesn’t mean the rest of you can’t use my little styling tips! You all have places to go to, don’t you?!

I’m not able to post what I was planning to today, but here’s just a few tips on handbags. My body type is petite and thin, so I’ve noticed since my teens that not all bags look good on me. That’s why I decided to write a few tips on how to choose your handbag.
