I'm considering taking a job in a hedge fund, where the environment is rather formal - French cuff shirts, jackets, etc. I'm having a ton of fun picking out cuff links and Thomas Pink shirts. Now I'm only 22 years old, and I find traditional briefcases to be a little bit stodgy and square. My boyfriend suggested the Louis Vuitton Epi briefcase - but, it's a briefcase. Besides, I think he would secretly steal it away from me! I like Balenciaga's bags because they are so roomy, and it would be nice to fit all my papers and possibly a laptop inside. But, I would be concerned about how "appropriate" it would be for my work environment, given how distressed they are. Now, I'm not *that* familiar with all the different purses out there (I know! Heresy!), so I was hoping to get people's input. Oh, and I'm also not the type that likes to switch purses frequently - so I would like something good for general purpose use. (Another reason why the LV Epi briefcase is rather out of the question.) And of course, there's a chance that I don't take this job because I don't feel like selling my soul for fun and profit but a new purse would still be nice!
