Think about this: who was the last person you saw carrying a designer bag or driving an expensive car? What bag or car was it? What were they wearing? Do you remember their face? Could you identify them out of a lineup? The answer is probably: NO! People will notice your bag but they are so absorbed in their own little world and its problems that they'll probably forget you as soon as you're out of sight. They won't even remember you if they were to run into you in a different setting, or while you're not carrying a high end bag. That's human nature. So wear your bags with pride because most people are not even thinking about you, and if they are they'll forget all about you soon enough.
