Yeah, I know that it’s “Friday Feets,” not “Friday Accessories.” And yes, I realize that I should have thought about how limiting it would be to focus solely on shoes.
But I just got a new laptop thanks to Dell’s amazing warranty policy, so I’ve been looking at new homes for it. My American Eagle messenger bag with minimal padding just won’t cut it any more, especially since my new laptop (named “Crockett”) will be accompanying me on a road trip.
Oh, yeah. That. I’m going on a road trip with my boyfriend to Montana. There may or may not be a blog. I’m undecided. It may be updated, it may not, because my first instinct is to catalogue my every waking minute, but my second instinct is to be remarkably lazy.
Point is, I am going on a trip, and am taking my laptop, and have since been looking at laptop bags. So today’s Friday Feets(ish) theme is ….
I haven’t installed Photoshop yet I forgot Chairman Kaga had a doctor’s appointment today and couldn’t announce the theme. So, uh … LAPTOP BAGS!
Target Bueno Croc Embossed Briefcase with Front Organizer Pocket – $29.99
Starting, of course, with Target. I’ve been looking for laptop bags that look like regular bags, because I am convinced that this will outsmart those laptop thieves who have no interest in ordinary purses. Because those totally exist.
Anyway – a very grown-up bag for someone who has very grown-up places to take their laptop, like a job or a wine tasting.
And, on the other end of the spectrum, a not particularly adult bag. Lots of pockets are a good thing when you carry everything you own, like I do. No, really, I have 6 lip glosses and two books in my purse at all times. A bag this large is a very good thing.
Fun fact: two dozen Pleathers were killed to make this bag.
This is pretty much what I have used as a book bag since sophomore year of college. I like the ruggedness of canvas messenger bags. It’s a little more than I would expect from a canvas bag, but if the quality’s good, then this thing will last forever.
Actually, if you’re just looking for a good messenger bag (that doesn’t have to carry a laptop): American Eagle. Those things last forever. The one I bought sophomore year is still up and kicking – it’s what I’ve been using to (very carefully) carry my laptop for the last six someodd years.
I don’t really know what a laptop sleeve does – I guess protect a laptop in a purse not designed to carry a laptop? Either way, it’s hot pink and quilted. It’s like a Chanel jacket for my computer. And Crockett has a taste for the finer things in life.
Another week down. I’m out of town for the next couple weeks but will be posting as normal (or, as close to normal as I can). Even if I don’t post an update to the fanpage, check in with the blog anyway – I might be auto-updating that day.
Thanks for reading, and have a good weekend!
