Miranda wrote to our sister site Outblush, saying,“…I am in dire need of a cute yet professional carry-all bag. I loooooove this one from J. Crew, but at $348 its a bit out of my price range. Plus, I’m not a huge fan of black bags and the red might be a bit much for something I want to use professionally, so I was hoping to find something in brown. It has to be big enough to carry a few notebooks, some odds and ends, plus my 15″ Macbook pro—so at least 14.5″ (either width or height). An outside pocket would be super nice but is not crucial. I want something leather. I’m not set on it being a tote, I’d be fine with a satchel or messenger bag or even a backpack. And here’s why I need some help from the professionals—I want it to be around $250. If you could help me with this it would be a life saver! I’m too bummed from finding dream bags for $400 or $500 to keep looking… Thanks!”
