I'm starting a new job in January at a law firm and want to base my purchase of an '08 color on the style that would suit the environment. I want a brighter bag, preferably the new Magenta. However, I'm also looking at the Vert Thyme. I just need something in which I can put my basic purse stuff (check book size wallet, sunglasses, eyeglasses, lip balm and two coin purses); a style that will look classic but slightly trendy. Any suggestions??? TIA!
