In preparation for my move, I decided to pick up a laptop because the thought of my desktop being on a boat for two months suddenly made me realize that perhaps I should have an updated laptop on hand so I can work, duh right?! ha! So I ordered a new MacBook Pro (and I love it but I want to be clear – I’m both a PC and Mac – I like them equally and refuse to take sides) and as I sit here tapping away on the keys I’m considering a good bag to carry it in since I’ll be toting it around airports and in London next month.
It’s always such a pain to find a nice laptop bag, isn’t it? I mean, they’re always black nylon whenever I shop local stores. I want one that rocks, like these handbags from Orla Kiely above. And while I have nothing against black, I do have a problem with being at airport security where everyone has a black bag on the conveyor belt. This is the same reason why I have Orla Kiely luggage — it certainly doesn’t blend! I’m waiting for the day when Kate Spade designs something in pink or turquoise leather with a fun interior…
Where do I go when I need group help? Twitter! With the aid of my dear Twitter friends I’ve compiled a list of places where you can find some nice laptop bags online in case you’re also looking for one. I’m not sure what I’ll end up with… If you have additional suggestions please comment below and I’ll revise this post to include your link too. Thank you!
