Toolbelts and workbags for women

I haven't done much handyman work around my house lately, but I'd be a little more motivated to get started again if I didn't cringe at the sight of my ugly toolbelt and toolbox. Who cares what your toolbelt looks like when your jeans are splattered with paint? Well, I do, and I'm guessing that there others out there who would like to look a bit more stylish while installing wood floors or cleaning out the gutter. You never know who might drop by while you're stomping around on your roof.

I thought I'd never see the day, but someone has actually designed stylish toolbelts specifically for women. S.Stein carries these incredibly cute toolbelts in lavender, green or espresso (the small one is for your little girl so your home improvement projects can become a mother-daughter bonding experience). Alright, so they're very expensive at $160 and $75 a piece, compared to the plain, ugly ones you can get at the hardware store, but I can easily justify the cost by thinking of all the money I'm saving by doing the work myself. They would be great for gardening too.

But that's not all -- this company also makes lovely (yes, LOVELY) workbags along the same lines as their toolbelts.

S. Stein carries six different styles of bags priced from $275 to $415, all inspired by traditional toolbags but obviously meant for broader use by the more fashion-conscious schleppers among us. Any of these bags would be suitable for carrying drawing supplies or camera equipment, and the Transporter bag ($330) is large enough to hold a laptop sleeve plus a change of clothes for the weekend. I also like the Small ToolBag (available soon for $275) for overseas travel -- with its many pockets, you can keep your passport, money, cell phone, iPod and travel book all organized and easily accessible.

Bags can be purchased or reserved on the S. Stein website.
