Yeah, not "OMG how will I ever do all the reading" or "what in God's name is a tort". Nope, I was super concerned about finding just the right bag to lug my laptop and books in. Does that shock anyone? Ha.
And for those who are wondering - I did finally find the perfect bag.
Louis Vuitton Saleya MM
I carried this bag every day for 3 years. It has held up WONDERFULLY, and is a great size . But it is time for something new... something that doesn't scream "I have lots of money and don't need this job!" in a job interview the way a giant logoed LV does (even though that is soooo not the case, I don't want to give that impression).
So, I'm in the market for a new bag. Well... I suppose I should say that I'm "in the market" for a new bag, because we all know that I'm unemployed, so a new handbag isn't quite in the budget at the moment. But it will be soon.
I am having a hard time finding something that isn't covered in studs/tassles/logos and that is structured enough so that it doesn't slump over and smush all your papers when you set it down.
So lady lawyers and other professional types - what do you carry? My LV served me well and I love it, I just want something non-logoed for every day. Preferably black, but brown is not a dealbreaker. It has to zip or have a flap that closes, so papers and computers don't get wet walking to the bus in the rain and so my stuff doesn't get snatched out by a bum if I decide to doze off and take a little nap during the commute to the job I hope to have someday soon. Pockets are good. I like pockets.
Oh and I hate Coach. So preferably not Coach.
(p.s. Dear LV - how about you just make the Saleya MM in plain black? That would be perfect. Thanks)
