WORKING GIRL 101 (STRUCTURED HANDBAGS)

I always say every stylish girl should own a good quality structured handbag, specially if you're a professional girl working in banking, finance, law, government, and other such conservative fields of work. It doesn't have to be expensive but it does have to look good. Remember that image plays a huge part on how far you get ahead in life, obviously mixed up with a lot of hard work, good connections, and a little bit of luck from above. 

A "Structured Handbag" is also called a "Ladylike Handbag." It is a handbag with reinforced leather so that it holds it's shape, it often has short straps that you either hold or dangle from your arm. Some also come with long chain straps to wear over the shoulder. A structured ladylike handbag is sleek, chic and feminine, and it's supposed to last you a lifetime. It is a power statement and projects both sophistication and polish. Even if you're not a working girl this type of handbag elevates any simple look to higher levels. 

Here are two looks that demonstrate the power of a good structured ladylike handbag on duty and off duty.
