What is it about bags?
You’re never feeling to frumpy or fat to try on a bag. A bag will never feel too tight. And, what’s more, they’re useful, they’re essential, they’re must-haves. OK, so maybe it’s not essential to have so many, but hey, who’s counting?
Best Bags for Work:

Leather bag from American Apparel: http://store.americanapparel.co.uk/l-epicier-two-tone-leather-bag_rsalh530tw. Who’d have thought that uber-cool American Apparel would give us something so grown-up and practical? Well they just did. And we love them for it.
