I am constantly in search of cute laptop bags (and other gadget holding accessories) for the ladies. Why is everything out there so "heavy" and just seems way too techie... too MALE??? I'm surprised there aren't more brands out there creating cool hip things for us working women. Thankfully, I came across the Tote Le Monde web site, a company famous for its french-style plastic tote bags. I had no idea their product range was so much larger now and I found so many fresh new modern things. What caught my eye was the Geneva Computer Bag. A messenger style bag that had the cutest colors that just felt fresh to me as I imagined myself jetsetting across town to that important meeting. Nice leather straps and an adjustable laptop protector, all with an affordable price range was just my cup of tea. What I loved was this line in the description "When your ready to trade in your laptop bag for a baby bag, just switch the laptop protector for a diaper changing pad and your bag is all set to go. " Not that my clock is ticking or anything, but the thought that I'd have this laptop bag for long enough until I have a baby AND that I'd have the option to use it for a baby bag was kinda ingenious! I'm all about mulitpurpose.
For sure I am going to get the aptly named Hollywood Cell Phone Pouch. At 14 bucks it's a steal and you can clip it onto the zipper of your purse so that you aren't digging in your bag for your phone.
I also like the Phoenix Cases, a set of 3 nested bags that have a clear strip in the front so you can see the contents inside. I use cosmetic bags like these when I travel to hold my cellphone, digital camera, and all the respective chargers and accessories so I have everything in one place. Its amazing what these little bags can do besides hold makeup.
For a more luxe budget there's a new line of bags out from Marka. I caught a small article on the 2 women featured in this October's Lucky magazine. All the bags are really, really stylish for the sophisticated city girl. The color combinations are so beautiful and sleek. If I could get anything, I'd go for the Denyn Sleeve from the Fall/Winter 2005 Collection. It seems to be sturdy and you can put a lot of items in the case along with your laptop.
So there you have it. Lots of different options to carry around your tech gear without losing your girly-ness.
