Attention working women of the world … search no more, I have found the perfect bag for your insanely busy, can’t find my keys anywhere, running from work to happy hour life.
If you are like me, you have been getting by with a large tote during the workweek. Often, I find myself throwing my laptop and phone into my bag next to file folders, business cards, my wallet, eyeglasses, planner, water bottles, and more. It’s completely unorganized, messy and not a good look to be fishing around for a pen while an annoyed client waits for you.
What’s more, I often notice many working women carrying bags that invalidate their professional clothing choices in the workplace. While a cute, sexy bag is great for the weekend, it’s sending the wrong message at work. And there’s nothing worse than seeing a colleague rocking a sleek pantsuit, only to be carrying a dowdy, frumpy looking bag. I assure you, making the investment in a modern and elegant work bag, that also provides versatility and usefulness in your life, will allow you to feel instantly elevated, organized and in charge!
So, I have been on the hunt for a well-designed work bag that looks professional and fashionable, yet has enough functionality and organization to make my workweek easier. I also needed something that was commuter friendly. This search ultimately lead me to the Parker Satchel from GiGi New York, and after wearing this bag throughout the last week to work, off-site meetings, a construction site, client presentation, train rides, and several happy hours/parties with friends, I could not be happier with the Parker’s performance and beauty.
Appearance: Finished with rich pebbled leather, a classic navy color, clean lines and gold hardware, this satchel is truly a stunning and chic bag for any working woman’s wardrobe. The Parker is effortlessly stylish and I adore the personalization option.
Versatility: Let’s talk specs … the Parker Satchel has a tough, structured top handle and a detachable shoulder strap for those long commutes, or days when you need both of your hands free. And every girl boss will appreciate the two padded, top-zip compartments for all things electronic. My 13” Macbook, iPad and iPhone (and their chargers) easily fit into these side compartments. Inside, you’ll find a center zip compartment divider and two slip-in pockets perfect for car keys, lipstick, business cards or anything that you need quick access to.
What I love most about this bag though, is how well built it is … the little details that I didn’t think about when searching for a new bag, but realized after putting the Parker to work in my busy life. Four, gold-finished feet allow this bag to stand on its own which is fantastic for those drop and go moments during the day. While I was drawn to the technical components of the Parker Satchel, wearing it throughout the last week made me appreciate the delicate blend between femininity and function. It’s timeless, elegant, professional, and a bag that I know I’ll be wearing for years to come.
