I’ve always been attracted to the idea of a briefcase. Perhaps its because they’re the most prototypical of the masculine bags, or perhaps they’re intriguing to me because they’re the type of accessory I’m least likely to ever carry myself. Either way, the sleek, businesslike simplicity of a briefcase never ceases to pique my interest; more so than any other type of men’s bag, a man carrying a beautiful brief looks mature and successful in the most attractive of ways.
I wrote about a Marc by Marc Jacobs man bag today for PurseBlog Savvy, and it got me thinking about man bags in general. Most of them are fairly unisex – a woman could easily use most of them as travel or office bags. Also, many are beautiful in their own right, although they don’t show up when I go looking for handbags to write about at Saks or Nordstrom.
While I was tweaking the blog tonight, I noticed that the Briefcases catagory has collected some dust in the past months. Strange actually, for there is so many elegant and chic briefcases to talk about. I figured I might as well freshen things up. And why not go all out with my favorite of all, the Louis Vuitton Ambassador Briefcase.
On with Viewer’s Choice Tuesday, we have a designer never spoken about here. Let’s all give a round of applause to Brahmin Leather Works! Hopefully we can all find something that meets our fancy on their site. Swetha, yet one more loyal reader and poster on the forum, would love for us to feature the Brahmin Rosemary Bag in Toasted Almond.
I’m all about taking over the business world. As far as I’m concerned any woman can make it out there- in fact, any person can. I tend to think of myself a bit like the character of Elle Woods, from Legally Blonde.
Before you take it the wrong way- let me explain how. I may be blonde and say some ditsy things from time to time and I may dress in all designer clothes, but I truly know what is going on in this world.
