really enjoyed my much needed day off for presidents day. still recovering from my cold, i hate stuffed sinuses!
its still too early, being mid-february and all, but with spring fashions popping up all over the stores and boutiques, and this weeks highs being in the 40s (both me and model citizen are super excited!) i've been daydreaming about becoming "that well dressed girl in the coffee shop tapping away on her sleek macbook." because.. well, it'll be warm enough for me to actually want to go outside and stay outside! unfortunately, this also now marks the beginning of my search for the perfectly "chic-but-not-too-prissy" "uptown-sleek-with-downtown-edge" handbag in which to carry my baby macbook. and of course, it has got to match my wardrobe. no boring leather carry cases here please. snooze.
i've always wanted a talene reilly laptop bag. unfortunately the $400 price tag has inspired me to search for some more budget-friendly alternatives for the moment. but who knows? if nothing cute turns up, or if a bag of money falls out of the sky and happens to land by my feet, i just might splurge. but first, must save!
lusting for talene reilly:
im a sucker for houndstooth. but which one? help! ($400 eeeek!)
a steal at target:
but kind of a snoozer. ($40)
againnyc.com has some laptop bags made from vintage fabrics:
acmemade.com makes a line of "designer slim" cases. they're not entirely bad:
