::Work B**ch::

Buying a work bag is a necessary evil sometimes, buying any other handbag is more fun than a bag you'll use Monday thru Friday to carry a mess of stuff. For most of us it's hard to determine what we'll need to bring home on any given day of the week so it can seem like a daunting task but here are some fool proof tips for buying a bag that will get you to and from your 9-5 with ease.

#1 Function & Fashion. The amount of pockets, top zip, long strap, and size are all very important to maintain your needs but look for something that also has some character. That may come in the form of a fun color or studs etc. Another key factor, make sure the bag isn't heavy when empty, imagine the weight once you get a laptop or some files in that thing. Ouch

#2 Classic Materials are Key. There a few materials that truly stand the test of time and hard work like leather. Leather always looks better with age and some wear but a vinyl type material will also last. Cotton, or cotton like materials (jacquard for example) won't last in harsh weather, heavy laptops, or even an accidental pen in the corner.

#3 Versatility. The ability to carry your bag in multiple ways is important. When your bag gets heavy (as most do) carrying it cross body will take the pressure off your forearm or shoulder and ease some stress off your back. When purchasing, try the long strap before leaving the store. Some straps are only meant to be carried long on the shoulder, with the length not comfortable or cute to wear cross body.

Have fun with your work bag and let your personality shine through, it'll help get you through those mundane Monday mornings.
