Why A Handbag Is A Girl’s Very Best Friend…

By Lonnie Wadley, Founder of Mila Roads

 

I have given this a lot of thought.  We girls need best friends. We need other women in our lives to consult with, laugh with, cry with, and even complain with.  I am in no way diminishing the important role our girlfriends play in our lives when I say, “ A bag is a girl’s very best friend.”  I mean, truly… Let’s make a list of the reasons.

 

  1. Your handbag goes everywhere you go.  She never leaves your side. Even if she isn’t thrilled to be there- you would never know it.  She’s with you every step of the way.

  2. She knows all of your secrets.  Not only does she know what’s in your bag, she knows everything about you.  The good, the bad, the ugly. And she never tells a soul. Which brings me to the next point.

  3. She never gossips.  She knows everything about you and all of your friends and family but never shares a single thing about them with other people, or other handbags.  

  4. She carries your “girl stuff”- and who does that?  She’s not embarrassed, she carries it proudly.

  5. Your handbag buys you lunch, coffee(or herbal tea) with friends, or that outfit you’ve been dying to get.  It’s on her.

  6. She goes with you on all of your adventures, and proudly wears all of those stories as part of your journey together.

     

The truth is, this is why I decided to start a handbag company. Incorporating textiles from different places in the world- beautiful fabrics that show the beauty and ethnicity of these places, into a handbag that we take everywhere with us -is intriguing to me.  The idea of making something that combines beauty and practicality brings me a lot of joy. But what really gets me excited is the story that you and your bag will create together. I can’t wait to see what adventures you and your very best friend are up to!
