Top fall 2012 work bags: “back-to-school” has never been so glamorous
Whether you’ve just landed your dream job or happen to have gone back to university, your 9-5 workday can run a little more smoothly and be well-organised with the right bag.
This fall, the fashion match will be all about the old style doctor bag – this bag has come back into the limelight. Another favourite is the British college-inspired satchel bag. You might find yourself being swayed towards the huge and roomy tote bag that easily fits all your bits and bobs in this year. Can you imagine yourself holding the ladylike bowling bag? It is easily transformable during the cocktail hour. Here we bring you our top selection of bags; be warned though, you may have trouble choosing just one…
