We live in a digital world where some etiquette rules have become old-fashioned, but new non-verbal rules have appeared. Sometimes we don’t know if we should bring something to a party or like a post about bad news. Knowing these modern do’s and don’ts will help you leave a good impression no matter where you are.
We at smartzune.com studied some etiquette rules that you might be confused about and we hope you find them useful.
1. Don’t put your bag on the table.
There is an old saying that goes ‘A purse on the floor is money out the door,’ and we know this to be true, Sarah Davis, founder of Fashionphile, the largest reseller of luxury handbags and accessories online, told INSIDER. “While sitting a bag on the floor alone may not damage the bag, it’s a small glimpse of a bigger picture in the way that a bag is regularly treated.”
Purses should be kept in the dust bags they come with or a cotton pillowcase, according to Rachel Koffsky, an expert from auction house Christie’s. Likewise, the bag should be stuffed with acid-free tissue paper to keep the bag’s shape, she said.
Every woman has probably been in a situation where she sits down at the table and starts searching for where to put her purse. Don’t put any of your belongings on the table! And we’re not just talking about your bag, but your sunglasses and your phone.
It is also not a good idea to put your bag on the floor. It’s not very hygienic, plus it could scratch the bottom which will probably just upset you if it’s a very expensive bag.
