I'm in college, and I have a Coach baby bag as my school tote. Sometimes that's not enough (for showin' off) and I bring a Signature Coach or an LV with it. I love showing off my bags for some reason. LOTS of other girls at school bring designer bags, even though a lot are fake. Maybe THAT's a reason I like to do it! Well I just got a Paddington and cannot get enough of it. I want to carry it every day, every day - but I'll have classes three days a week. Would you carry such a bag to school? I could leave it in the car, hidden (even locked down with the key on ME lolol), but that's risky. It'll be fine with me in class though - I put the baby pad down underneath my school tote and handbag (if I have one) lol. I just worry the Chloe' might be a bit showy or worth too much, even though I've brought my used LV Alma (showy but worth less even new, although sooo coveted, natch).. but I also want to be able to use it after class when I go out doing errands, too. I hate bringing a wristlet around afterward lol (not good enough!), and I don't really carry the baby bag as a handbag. Hmm. Oh besides, the Paddington is so heavy and my school tote is even worse! Ahh. Waahh. Oh well! (Might it be better sans lock?) On the upside to the last point, I could really lose all the weight I've gained the past year quickly! So what do you think about bringing designer bags to classes, especially Paddingtons? Do any of you have stories (even stories about building muscle with Paddies lolol)? Thanks.
