The New Bag

Since last October, I’ve been on the hunt for a new bag. I needed something that was big enough to bring to work, but small enough that it could also be a general all-purpose bag. I wanted something simple, something that would go with everything, and something that could go from day to night. Introducing….

my new bag, the Madewell Mini Transport Crossbody.

The size is perfect, the design is classic, and the colour is interesting without being boring. It’s not perfect though…the leather is nice, but the bag feels a bit flimsy and I’m being mindful to not pack it full as I don’t want the straps breaking on me. I also wish it had another pocket or two….an exterior one would be perfect.

Thie bag will more than do for now, but the quest for the perfect bag continues…

Bags, Bags, Bags

My good ol' trusty MEC bag that has been all over the world with me.

My good ol’ trusty MEC bag that has been all over the world with me.

My cheapo ASOS bag broke this past weekend and now I’m back to carrying my utilitarian MEC bag while I search out a new one. I think I need to up my budget and get one that lasts. I also think I’ll need two: one for my everyday about town bag, and one for work. For the former category…

  • I’ve always coveted a Rebecca Minkoff handbag, but can’t decide whether I like the M.A.C. or Hudson Moto better. And would I get the mini or the full-size? Decisions decisions.
  • Love the simplicity of this Annabel Ingall JoJo Crossbody.

And for a work bag…

  • Totes are big right now. This Madewell one is a blogger favourite. Everlane has one that is similar and looks like it could hold everything I own.
  • Also really like this simple one from Matt & Nat.
