Hi, I'm new to the list and I have been enjoying reading your posts! I'm looking for a good everyday bag that 1) isn't too heavy 2) fits a magazine or newspaper 3) features a large zippered section for my wallet/other stuff and 4) has some sort of small pocket -preferably on the outside - where I can easily access my monthly subway pass. The two I have been eyeing are the Hogan shopper without the fringe and the Botkier Trigger bag. Which of these do you prefer? Or should I pass on both and continue looking? http://www.styledrops.com/handbags-9826.html http://www.botkier.com/luxe_trigger.html Are there other bags I should consider? I was also thinking about Marc Jacobss Stella but wonder if this style is too dated. Plus, MJ is no longer making them and theyre only available at online retailers (which makes me a little nervous).
