i love bags. i am forever in search of the perfect handbag (i have yet to find it) but i did buy a really cool bag this weekend - the "Duck Bag" by Baggu. i bought mine at a store in the city (rogan) but they're available on line here.
i bought the color below - an easy, grey neutral for summer. it is has an interior pocket (which a lot of casual, canvas totes don't have) and a snap closure. it's a great everyday bag but it'll be a great travel bag (prefect for the way too many magazines i jam in my bag when i go on trips). oh, and it's only $22.
and i'm thinking about getting a couple of these for groceries. they fold up into a neat little pouch and they're machine washable (perfect for the germaphobe in me). and they come in fun colors and patterns.
