Ward Off The Evil Spirits

In the past few days I have read about a research by the University of Minnesota that proves that when a woman flaunts designer products she signals to others to back off her man. Women that wear luxury products are seen as having a devoted and loving partner and therefore, other women are less likely to flirt with him. This even works no matter who purchased the luxury product, whether the woman paid for the product herself or her husband bought it for her.  The same study also proved that when women feel like their relationship is in jeopardy they are more likely to purchase and flaunt their luxury clothes and accessories.

SOOOO women everywhere pick up your credit cards and go shopping. No matter where you stand in your relationship. Think of it as having to wear garlic to ward off vampires, but “sadly” you’re substituting ¬†garlic with Chanel pearls.

The first step into warding off those evil spirits is to show up carrying this Alexander McQueen clutch.
