Choosing the Appropriate Authentic Designer Handbag For You

By Tony Tracy

It can be a little intimidating to try and choose the perfect bag from amongst the multitude of choices of luxury designer handbags available on the market today.

It is no wonder that so many questions arise concerning real designer handbags, purses and even luggage in regards to their appropriate usage. Believe it or not, one of the most discussed questions is on what type of designer handbag to buy for a job interview.

A key point to understand here is that function comes first, then style, when it comes to attending a job interview or even business power lunch. A handbag that is functional should easily be able to contain important documents such as your resume or portfolio, reference letters and even your business cards without damaging them. All the while your designer bag should also demonstrate your unique sense of style. Depending on personal preference, many women do without a luxury designer handbag all together and carry a briefcase in its stead.

Points to remember when choosing an authentic designer handbag for an important job interview are:

1. Pick a functional bag that has multiple interior pockets that can store your most important items such as pens, mobile phone, business cards and keys. This way you do not have to pour out all the contents of your bag or desperately rummage around your bag with your hand to find a particular item. The worse thing to do is look disorganized simply because you are not aware of where everything is in your handbag.

1. The interior of the bag deserves some handbag care in a way that whenever it is being cleaned, all of the interior should be pulled out gently. From there, a soft brush can be used to clean its whole insides. Food crumbs like chocolate particles, which usually stick to the nylon material of the bag, and other stains should be cleaned with warm water and a soft rag.

2. Whenever your designer handbags have zippers, these should also be very well maintained because these hold things together. Remember, the designer handbag would be useless without these zippers. Zippers can be lubricated and kept away from exposure to water by using beeswax, which is also readily available in hardware stores.

3. The next thing that should be given attention is the handle of the bag. Overstuffing the bag can damage the handle because not all handles can hold heavy stuff. Designer handbags can be sensitive at times and therefore the owner should know its capacity and stick to it to make its life longer. Lotion can sometimes stain light-colored handles and therefore, proper care should be observed.
