Good Question: Where Can I Find a Stylish Handbag for Work?

November 19, 2007 by SheFindsJennifer

One of our lovely readers recently emailed us:

Question: I have been going insane trying to find a cute work bag.  It needs to be something cute but big/long enough to comfortably hold legal-size files — I'm thinking like 17 inches wide. After talking with friends at work, it seems like everybody has or has had this problem!

Answer: This is definitely an important question. Every modern gal should have a stylish tote that can actually carry everything needed to get through the workday. After a pretty extensive search, we have uncovered some fabulous options in every price range:

This glossy, quilted faux leather messenger style bag from Forever 21 ($28) is the perfect size (17" X 17") for your legal files, a fashion mag, and perhaps even your laptop. It's also the perfect price for your wallet! Inside a convenient zip pocket stores a few tubes of makeup, and there is also a seperate cellphone pocket that will keep your gadgets secure.

It may be called the Utility Tote ($438), but this Marc Jacobs logo tagged bag is an absolute stunner. We love the two outside pockets where you can easily stowe a Diet Coke or Nutragrain Bar to keep you going, plus two inside pockets that are open for easy access and another one that zips to prevent keys and lipstick from escaping. All of these little compartments plus the bag's ample size (14" X 17" X 5.5") make for style at its functionable best.

For a major splurge, consider this beautiful Frame Bag from Dior ($1,990). Although its pricy, for those of you lucky enough to afford it, this is also a great find. Its size meets our requirements (17" X 14" X 4.5"), and the sturdy braided handles are sturdy plus plentiful pockets make this an office must-have.
