Love the Lucy Bag -- laptop bags
When I carry this bag I feel like a PowerPuff Girl - all soft, pink and feminine, but secretly kicking villain butt. Bubbles would carry the Lucy bag, in cheery pink with white piping and a large, white heart patch on the front. This bag says she's confident, has a great sense of humor; that she wears her heart on her sleeve.
Not only is it the cutest of my new bags, it's also well designed, with plenty of inside pockets, soft, comfortable shoulder straps, a magnetic snap outer pocket (great for travel docs), metal feet, and at 2.4 lbs, it's also pretty light for a large computer bag. (Price: $165 for 15" laptops, $175 for 17" laptops.) You can also take out the computer clutch and use it for a handbag, though the 17" model is a little big if you're petite like me
It also comes with an adorable matching clutch & mirror included (which my daughter absconded with).
And even though it's wonderfully soft and supple, like leather, it's actually a kind of plastic (hence the name of the company, Plastic People.) Designer Shannon South is as bright and cheerful as her bags and, I suspect, a PowerPuff Girl in disguise.
Now excuse me while I go save the world before bedtime.
