College/School bags

  1. Hi girls,

    I'm a first year in college right now, and so I wanted a bag to help me carry my stuff! I don't carry my books with me or anything, but I do have a 15 inch Macbook, a notebook, a planner, pencil pouch, and the square-shaped power cord for my laptop. I really don't want to use a backpack, and so I'm looking more for a bag. I don't have to get a bag that comes with a special laptop compartment, cause I can just put my laptop in it anyway, but I'd really like a nice, big, beautiful bag. I'm looking at Kate Spade's large baby bags, and so that is more of the kind of "style" that I want. I'm hoping that there might be more options or suggestions out there from you beautiful girls, so I'm waiting before purchasing the bag. I prefer something classic, beautiful, but also very useful, so I'd deeply appreciate any input! Thanks!
  2. if you're looking for something not really expensive, you might want to give a look. they have some bags that are made for holding diff sized laptops and well as being real practical for carrying business stuff. the bags are really nice for the price. i went and checked out their bags last week. hope it helps

  5. i'm a 4th year, so i carry around a LOT with me...and i have a leather business tote from wilson's leather that i love. i've tried messenger bags, but they end up hurting my back. and, besides, they just aren't attractive on me if i put them across my chest, you know?
    maybe try a business tote or a baby bag (like you said). i'll look around and see if anything specific pops out at me.
  6. wow thanks so much! those pictures are gorgeous, and i think wilson's leather might also be another place to look into it.

    thank you all so much!
  7. I have a padded notebook sleeve that I use to turn any (big) purse into a PC bag.

    I have even used it with a completely unstructured hobo bag.
  8. I'm in my 2nd year of college so I had the same problem this semester. Last semester I carried a tote that was slouchy I guss you can call it and it was so annoying because whenever I put it down all my books would fall out. I just got the Kate Spade Aubrey Baby Tote and so far it's perfect :smile:

  9. i really love my herve chapelier nylon totes for school - they're very easy to carry, zip all the way across the top, are waterproof, and come in a million colors. you can get them at Nordies, bloomies, or i also like longchamp totes, they're very similar.
