Treating myself to a good-quality work bag was something I planned to do later this year, when Paul an I are on a four-week trip through Europe and the U.S. But when the Area 51 website offered a 15% discount on first online purchases just for signing up to their weekly email newsletter, I decided to bite the bullet and buy this beauty:
I have had my beady eye on this Marc by Marc Jacobs bag for some time. It's the exact shape I want, it has short handles (I have long arms) and the leather is soft. It's a modern design with just the right amount of hardware. The only thing I had to think hard about it its size. It's quite large. After a week of 'alone time' with the bag, and making sure it was going to work out, I finally cut the tags off tonight and it makes its debut at work tomorrow.
