Bagaholicboy Muses #221 – What Makes Me Cringe

If there’s something that has been bugging me for a while now, it’s this. The fact that weekend after weekend I will see some man carrying, holding and god forbid, toting his girlfriend’s or wife’s handbag.

Why would any woman who loves her man want to torment him this way?

There are, however, exceptions to the rule. She needs to try on some clothes in the fitting room. She is struggling with the little one. She fractured her wrist fighting over the cashmere shawl that was 90% off.

And that’s it.


The funny thing is, I know what’s coming next. ‘But my bag is heavy, and my shoulders are aching,’ she whines. Which brings me to my next point. It is the weekend, and you’re out with your man in town, shopping, dining and maybe catching a movie after that.

Why the hell do you need to bring all your personal belongings (and then some) to town with you?

So what’s the solution? You downsize. The smaller the bag is, the less you can bring out, which in turn makes the bag so much lighter and it won’t end up in his arms. Get it?

It’s really simple. You won’t have an excuse ever again, he won’t feel bad not being a gentleman and most importantly, I can stop cringing whenever I’m in town.

And men, if you’re reading this, you can save yourselves as well. Just make sure you get her the smallest (yet most minimally functional) bag you can find and give it to her for Christmas.

Like the Kate Spade Barrow Street Mini Anabel (available in 3 different colour combinations by the way, 2 of which are shown above) that’s not only cute, it is pretty affordable too, at just USD195 if you buy it online.

You know you’ll thank me later for this.

    I couldn’t agree with you more… I cannot get why a girl would blow a thousand bucks on beautiful arm candy and then make her guy sling it on his shoulder…

    If it’s meant to complete the look of your outfit, then for heaven’s sake, carry it yourself!

  • FR says:

  • Dottie says:
