extend your forearm out, palm of your hand up.
See that pose you're striking just there? That's how some wimmin carry their handbags, looped over the hand and along the forearm. I've seen them do it. More than one of them, too.
Mind you, they seem to be the same wimmin that tuck their jeans in to their boots.
Wimmin, eh? I don't think they can be trusted, quite honestly. Not if that's how they choose to carry/wear things
