Perfect for work or school

After my trip to NYC for work with all of my work stuff plus my purse which had my phone, kindle, wallet, mp3 player and lip glosses; my bags were heavy and then I had to lug my coat, scarf and hat around because going to NYC at the end of November I needed to stay warm to avoid getting sick.  HA! HA! HA!  That worked out real well since I was sick my entire trip 😦   I digress,  the point to my ramble, is that I realized a shoulder bag was needed hopefully with room for most of my things for a plane ride.  One bag is best on the airlines now anyway, less drama.   I started looking for some  shoulder bags and here are a few of my faves.

Cole Haan has a great shoulder bag that has canvas lining, an adjustable and detachable shoulder strap and cell phone and PDA patch pockets. 

Valise Jenna Shoulder Bag $428

 
Rebecca Minkoff has a shoulder bag that contains magnetic snap closure, fabric lining and double patch pockets.  It is pretty roomy, not sure if a regular size lap top would fit in there but there’s definitely a lot of room.  This bag will run you close to $600 but of course you can find it on other sites for at least 50% retail.   
 

Rebecca Minkoff Devote $595

There’s also the Rubi Laptop Dome bag comes in black, red, brown, nutmeg and crimson.   There are interior pockets and an exterior pocket.  This bag also has a detachable shoulder strap for diversity.  Check out the website there are a ton of different bags to choose from. 

The one below is out of stock 😦  Of course the bag I think is the best is sold out!

It’s the Medhi Canvas Handbag by Matt & Nat.

Hello world!

I am dipping my toes into Blog World…slow,  yet steady.  I have always had a fascination with shoes, purses and other accessories.  As time went on, my purse collection grew and GREW!  My collection has grown to the point where my husband insists that if I buy a new purse; an old purse must be given away.  

I seem to have a natural ability to pick out  purses that earn me compliments no matter where I am. So here I am,  hoping to turn a natural love and passion into something bigger and better!
