A work bag is essential. I've tried countless times to try and go without one. To minimize what I take to work in hopes of virtually bringing nothing with me when I arrive to the office. But that hasn't fared so well. There are just too many items that I need or want to have with me during the work day. So, I've become obsessed with work bags that are uber-functional and aesthetically pleasing to the eye without being flashy. A bag that is classic and long lasting in style.
I think I've found the perfect work bag in the Philanthropist Briefcase by CC Filson. Although it's being marketed as a men's work bag, this could also be worn by a woman. It has a sleek silhouette with minimal leather and gold accents throughout, while it's dark hues and sturdy canvas material - which can easily be cleaned - allow for daily use without looking worn out in a few months. I especially love the tiny little red stitch in the center - it's so nondescript and unexpected. The Philanthropist also features a detachable and padded leather shoulder strap, two interior pockets and four exterior pockets for organization. Dimensions: 16"W x 12.5"H x 4"D. Price: $365.
