  1. I'm looking for high quality, cute alternative to a travel tote, laptop bag for business. Someone recommended the Cole Haan Aerin Convertible...does any one hear own one or have personal pictures so I can get a real deal idea of how big this bag really is in comparison to the body. I'm really wondering if this bag is sturdy enough to carry a laptop, not that my 14" is that heavy.

    Thanks in advance, ladies! You always come through for me!;)
     
  2. bumpin', bumpin'......
     
  3. bumping again....:wlae:
     
  4. I'm sorry that I don't know anything about that particular bag, but I can honestly tell you that I do have a few Cole Haan bags that have withstood the test of time because the leather is so darned sturdy, and of course, I love the linings they use. I would go for the brand because I love Cole Haan. I'm sure someone will come across for you........
     
  5. There are a bunch of Cole Haans on clearance at TJ Maxx today, wish I would have read this before I went I could have looked for a laptop bag.
     
  6. I don't own this bag, but have seen them IRL. I sat on a plane once next to a woman who was a magazine editor and she had one of those. She had everything, including her laptop, in there and it still looked gorgeous. I definitely want one of those when I need a new work bag.

  8. Yeah, that's the one I'm talking about too...although one of the SA did mention the Aerin medium tote pictured in the post above. I wish someone would post of picture carrying the bag so I could get a better idea of how big it really is before buying. I made the mistake before of purchasing a bag before actually seeing it in person and it turned out to be pretty huge (and ugly too).
     
  9. I can tell you laru that is a huge bag. The girl I saw with it was maybe 5'4" 130 lbs and it looked like luggage on her. But here in New York everyone's handbags look like luggage.
     
  10. :lol:
     
  11. You might get better luck asking about the Cole Haan Paige bag. From what I can remember, it looks exactly like the Aerin except with some minor difference since it was last year's model. I think Cole Haan only changed the name.

    Hope that helps!
     
  12. Thanks, LadyV...great advice! I did a search for the Paige and did find the picture I was looking for. :tup:
     
  13. Hi, I have the Cole Haan Paige Convertible, which is almost identical to the Aerin, and it is pretty big. I constantly have to listen to comments from my family and husband about my "luggage" or "duffel bag." But I LOVE it anyway. It holds a ton of stuff. The only downside is that I am constantly searching inside the bag for my stuff! My biggest concern before I bought it was that I could wear it on my shoulder and I can. Hope this helps.
     
  14. Thanks....I'm glad to hear that you're enjoying your Paige (or Aerin). I went ahead and ordered it. I wanted to take advantage of the 30% off promotional discount. I hope I like it. I guess I don't have to worry about it being big enough to hold my laptop. :smile:
