Crazy About Bags with Emma Shazleen
Move over diamonds as handbags are here to take the crown! For most ladies, the handy carrier now serves a greater purpose than just an accessory. It is a statement piece, status symbol and in certain cases, can double as a weapon of self-defense or as their home on the move. Which explains why it's no real surprise that many women of all ages have formed a long-term love affair with their handbags; living, breathing and talking all about bags. If there’s any way to describe how profound their relationship is, we believe it is safe to say that the ladies are all Crazy About Bags. *wink*

Psst...want to be one of three lucky readers to win a handbag by Guess, Alain Delon & Giamax? Surprisingly, getting your hands on one couldn't be any easier! All you have to do is click here and follow the simple instructions.
1. Describe your style in 3 words.
I will go with edgy, simple and minimalistic.
2. How do you style your handbag?
Oh, it is pretty simple and easy! The way I do it is that I usually mix and match my bag accordingly to the colours, occasions and the outfit that I am wearing.
3. In your opinion, what makes a good handbag?
Hmm...I believe a good handbag should be made with great workmanship and material.
4. How many bags should a woman have? And, how many is too many?
How many is too many? A woman can have a room full of bags yet it is still not enough. *laugh*
5. Tips on finding the right bag?
Knowing the purpose and what you are planning to use it for can be a great help in finding the perfect bag. Mainly because those who need to store more essentials could benefit all the extra room that a bag could offer, while those who carry fewer items on their daily basis would just go with a smaller size bag as they require less storage space. So, I guess it boils down to their own needs and preferences.
6. Would you rather spend your last cash on a handbag or heels? Why?
I always feel incomplete without my bag so my pick would definitely be handbags over heels, no doubt about it! For me, bags are and will always be a fashion statement; the main highlight of my outfit so to speak. And, honestly, people tend to look at your bag more than they look at your heels.
7. Lastly, share with us your top 5 style secrets.
5 secrets? I don’t have that much of a secret to share. *laugh* hmm…but few things that are running on top of my head right now are that I usually get up early to get my makeup done, giving it enough time to set in for the rest of the day. Oh besides that, I plan my outfit at least a day before, so that I don’t have to rush when I go out. Preparation is the key!
