Tod’s Men’s Fall 2011

Badgley Mischka Caroline Knot Tote

This is an OK bag but a fantastic laptop and work bag! Bag Snobs don’t use briefcases, that is so passe. This tote with the knot detail adds some razzle dazzle so it can easily translate to the evening without looking like you’re still clocked in.

Ooooh, a new bag from Valextra. And I can can share this one with my husband (or not). The messenger may look specific for work but nobody needs to know you have your laptop in there.
