It’s been said that as New Yorkers, our bags are our cars. We leave in the morning, and rely upon our bags to carry us from breakfast to the office to lunch to dinner to drinks. It’s no wonder so many women here have such incredible handbags… they carry our lives! Inside my own bag, you can find anything from the obvious (phone wallet, lipsticks(s), planner + pen) to the unexpected (spare earrings in case I go out, random cat toys) to the embarrassing (gum that is disintegrating, loose tampons, illegible receipts.)
I had been on the hunt for a great blue bag. I typically stick to more neutral accessories, but I wear so much blue that I thought it would make for the perfect pop of color. And this bowler bag from Vera Bradley fits the bill. The sleek silhouette is streamlined and ladylike, and it’s colorful without being loud or overpowering. Also, it holds all my essentials and a pair of heels, which is a necessity… and has a longer strap so that you can wear it over your shoulder. I am so happy that Vera Bradley is doing leather bags!
