Pretty much anything that any of us does gives the people around us a little hint about our full personalities, and that includes how we choose to clothe ourselves and spend our money. Fashion is a social language, after all, and we're all talking constantly. As I do from time to time, I took stock of the season's hottest bags and made some predictions about what the bag choices might say about their future owners.
