Wear Your Voice On Your ArmBy Style Counsel / February 20, 2018 / Blog,Style / 0 Comments
Tote Bags are a strange phenomenon in the fashion world. They can seem like the ultimate way to scream out “I’m a hippy” and can be a visible protest to over-priced yet beautiful designer handbags. However, if you’re finding yourself cramming your laptop, lunch, notebook, a change of shoes and your make-up bag all into a beautiful little bag, then you have to come to terms with the fact that a tote bag is ‘tote-ally’ the way forward.
Tote bags allow you to express your views and interests whilst being incredibly convenient. Wearing a tote with a quirky quote about your love for reading instantly informs people that you are a bookworm just as wearing one of Lush cosmetics’ famous ‘fighting animal testing’ bags expresses your ethical views.
Here are a few ways to express yourself through your tote bag:
Purchase one from your favorite
Your favorite places to shop can say a lot about your character and with the governments across the world attempting to reduce the usage of plastic bags, a canvas tote will be a perfect investment. Not only will getting one from your fave store help them financially, it will save your poor hands from carrying 8 different shopping bags when all of your goodies could fit into one.
Personalise a tote
Whilst there are many different tote bags you can purchase from stores or online, making one is far more fun for you creative types. You can purchase a pack of plain tote bags for less than $10/£10 on eBay, giving you a blank canvas to get creative. You can make shapes by print painting with vegetables, draw patterns or even sew sequins all over. The options are endless as long as you keep the creativity flowing! There are also many different websites like Etsy where you can get totes made by independent designers that portray the perfect message to wear on your arm.
Collect them at events
Conferences, events, and festivals are the best places to collect tote bags, not only will they be branded with companies you are interested in, they are free! You’re likely to be loaded with leaflets, guidebooks and free gifts at events so be sure to grab a tote, fill it with freebies and then enjoy the free bag later on.
