Baga, it sounds like from what you've mentioned before that your work places you in situations where it would be a negative thing if someone thought you were carrying a rep. If I were in your shoes I would make the same choices that you did! I work in an industry where nobody knows and nobody cares about fashion. In fact, for my profession we're expected to dress very conservatively and not particularly dressy, so I do that accordingly and don't carry a different blingy bag each day of the week. It's all about what is appropriate for each person in his/her profession/walk of life. I like to hear what everyone else has to say about reps, because it makes me think more about my own beliefs.
