Big bag theory

Keep up people, two posts in two days! And in this one, I need your help. (But make sure you read the one from yesterday cause it's one of my faves in a while.)

This past weekend, I bought a bag. Not a duffle bag. Not a grocery bag. A bag bag. Like a purse on steroids. Here's the problem: I'm scared of carrying it. I never even carried a purse until I got married and had a real job and I couldn't fit everything I needed to in my pockets anymore. But since we moved to New York and I have a ways to walk to work, I've had to carry things the nine blocks and I've thought I should just get a bag to hold all this stuff that won't fit in a purse (umbrella, sweater, a cute pair of shoes so I can walk in comfy ones). So I'd been keeping my eyes open, and when we were at Target this past weekend, I saw this one. I really like this bag. It's got tons of pockets and stuff inside, and even has a padded area to carry a laptop. And it's a nice-looking bag. Red faux leather. It looks feminine and professional all at once. But I'm still trying to convince myself to carry it. I took a few pictures so you can see. What do you guys think? Like it? Hate it? Keep it? Carry it?




















Sorry about this one, I pushed down the plastic on the straps

Absolutely.

I LOVE it and am beyond jealous - both of its stylishness and the padded laptop area. I carry mine to/from in a super dorky day-pack that zips off of my hiking backpack.

Keep it! I love it! In fact, I will be getting my butt to Target sometime soon to see if they have them here, because I still have a backpack laptop carrier. And it squeaks. And the red is gorgeous!

Love the bag, but of course I love all big bags, Seth says I like to carry luggage around with me, I say it is the only way to go! Miss you guys!

Red=I love it!

Seriously, it looks fantastic on your shoulder, and with all that stuff you have to carry, I say keep it.

Just make sure you tuck that baby under your arm like it's the last bag left on earth. I don't want you getting mugged, even though that doesn't happen as often as people think it does in NYC.

I LOVE it. If you decide not to keep it, you can just mail it to me. ;o)

Stephanie- I don't know if you remember me from Shorter , but I found you on Kari's blog.

Anyway, I love the bag! I need a new work bag- mine is so worn out!
