So, my baby brother is going to college this year. Yes, I realize that it is many months away, but I can’t help but think about how grown up he is. Now, when I think about him going to college, I start to think back to my college days and when it comes to that I think about the way I schlepped my books back and forth. With all of these things swirling in my head I was pretty happy to come across this messenger-ish bag. (more…)
Are you in the NYC area and wondering what to do tomorrow, December 10th? Well, do we have something for you! Check out the Winter Sample Sale that is being hosted by The Sak, sakroots (eco-friendly bags) and Elliot Lucca.

Way back when, I had a purse by The Sak. It was back when I was but a wee child and they made only the woven bags that made them famous, and I thought it was the most luxurious thing in the world. I eventually added a smaller, black version to my collection and thought of it as somewhat of an evening bag, even though a child of my age really had nowhere to carry such things.
I have since moved on with my handbag life, and it appears as though The Sak has done the same with it’s Convertible Satchel. Given the extremely reasonable price point, this bag is particularly well-tailored and sophisticated looking; it has a bit of slouch to it for a satchel, but not too much by any stretch of the imagination. It also neatly combines its second handle option by tucking the shoulder strap under the bag, hiding it until it’s necessary and then using the extra material at the ends to turn it into something of a proper-looking hobo. Look how far they’ve come. Buy through Nordstrom for $199.
