|Tory Burch Robinson Tote|
The other day I mentioned my desire for a new carry-on bag for when I travel. I also have a desire for a new work bag. Now, there's something you should understand about me. I love purses. I usually spend more time in the purse section of stores (and the shoes....) then I do actually shopping for clothes. As a result, I have a lot of purses. What I do not have, however, are purses designed for carrying everything that I need to take to work with me on a daily basis.
Well, that is perhaps a lie. I have two very nice Longchamp Le Pliage totes (in red and black) that I love. They got me through grad school. They are hugely roomy, fit everything but the kitchen sink, and have nice long straps (which I love). They make nice carry-on bags when I don't have to carry anything in them but normal purse things (which is really only when I check a bag which is, oh, never) However, they have no interior pockets. As someone who carries makeup, gum, and assorted accessories with her, I find that it often is a problem because I have to put more small bags in to hold things so they don't get lost in the depths of the bag. Because it is huge. And things do get lost (all the time...hello keys, where are you?).
I'm also feeling that now that I am a working adult, I need a bag that fits that. I love my Longchamp bags, but they are seen most often on college campuses. Which is all well and good, but I am not in school anymore. And I want a nice leather bag that is an investment. One that is classic, will not go out of style, but still fits all the crap I lug around with me. On the hunt.
This was a long, involved explanation. Result: I want this bag. The end.
