Overview

A charming, clever analysis of how women's personalities are reflected in their choice of handbags. Fully illustrated with colorful depictions of 40 different handbag styles, the text describes characteristics of the women who carry each one.

According to fashion expert Kathryn Eisman, to understand a woman, first understand her purse.

In How to Tell a Woman by Her Handbag, Eisman cleverly contends that fashions come and go, but a woman's handbag is eternal, forever revealing her nature—and just maybe her secrets. With forensic precision and cutting wit, Eisman helps women identify their own handbag personas as well as those of family, friends, and foes.

Thanks to How to Tell a Woman by Her Handbag, the next time you rub shoulders with Canvas Tote Lady or Decrepit Briefcase Lady or even Bamboo Cane Handle Lady, you'll be able to discern just what makes her tick. But you'll also recognize the bond common to women the world over—we're all bag ladies!

    LOVE this book!

    I found this little pink gem and fell in Love! Not only does it look like a chic pink designer clutch, but the insights are soooo spot on! The author looks at 50 or so different bags and what they reveal about their wearer...and it's hilarious and so true! She calls it our Purse-onality!

    Basically, the small decisions we make reveal who we really are much more so than the grand declorations and a woman's handbag is the ultimate symbol of who she is- what she values, her sense of humor, taste and sense of self.

    I laughed for hours finding myself and all of my girlfriends in the book (and even a few ex bosses that I didn't love so much). I'm going to buy it for all my BFF's as a "thanks for being a friend" gift...I know they'll adore it.

    Such a find...what else has Kathryn eisman written??
