The Bosslady Bag Guide
Unlike strictly just-for-show accessories, a work bag is a necessity—meaning it has a lot of boxes to check (roominess, durability, organizational-value) before you can even begin thinking about aesthetics. The totes, satchels, and cross-bodies here get the job done (and look really good doing it).
