Abbi New York: stylish bags that hold laptops
Discover Abbi . . . Despite the unintentionally tawdry marketing tagline (which sounds like it could have come from a bad "romance" novel, or worse) the website for Abbi New York allows you to do just that. And as browsing the site will quickly reveal, Abbi New York actually peddles laptop bags which carry all the stylishness and functionality of regular handbags. Under collections you'll find three main categories of bag, all of which accomodate laptops with screens up to 15.4". The print brocade designs, with "it" girl-sounding names like Jade, Natalie, and Sienna respectively are a bit too sweet for my taste, but the classics have clean lines and strong shapes which could past muster as a regular bag, while providing all the convenience of laptop sleeves and copious internal pockets.
Still, I have to wonder about the Sabrina. At $89.95 it seems like a steal, until you read in the fine print that it's made of premium faux leather. (Tell me, is there such a thing?) Either way, you'll find that Abbi of New York just might be able to deliver a bit of novelty and fun to your everyday laptop tote.
