The beep of the bar code reader went on like a fire alarm. The sales assistant anxiously looked at the long queue.
Calming myself, I started glancing through the crowd. “People do wear fashionably these days, don’t they?” I thought. Whenever an interesting style showed up, I took a mental note for future reference. Silently, I judged and commented on each, depending on how I perceived their dress code. After all, they would not hear me, and I was standing here wasting my precious time.
Though, I would not say I wasted my whole time, since this girl, whom I spotted in the crowd changed my view about handbags. She was tall and skinny, tan in complexion and her straightened hair was up to her shoulders.
She wore a simple, plain greyish strappy dress up to her knee and not a single piece of accessory, except a pair of bathroom slippers and a handbag.
Yet she looked elegant and modern. Sure, it was not her dress, which gave her that look. I ran through her outfit head to toe again. Voila! It was her trendy, fashionable bag. She had a gorgeous red tote bag on her right shoulder. It contrasted well with the dress and made her stand out from the crowd.
