Let me tell you a secret but promise me you wouldn’t judge.

I have been using my Lenovo laptop bag as a document bag when I am out for business meetings.

I know such is unacceptable for a so-called fashion and lifestyle blogger in Singapore and therefore, I endeavour to look for a presentable document/laptop bag for work. But honestly, it is hard. Most document bags, or briefcases out there look so masculine that it looks a little mismatched on us.

Kate Spade has a few feminine options available, which are reasonable sized with suitable handles and shoulder straps. For something a little bit more luxurious and atypical, I have my eyes (and heart) set on the 31 hour bag from 3.1 Phillip Lim. Having previewed and carried this bag before, it is spacious but not too heavy and definitely a good match with office outfits. One nagging concern though, is that this bag does not come with a shoulder strap.

Black might be a common colour choice for such bags, for the ease of matching with our outfits. The PS11 bag is a sophisticated bag adorned with signature hardware. I would pick this over the laptop bag from The Row which is way beyond my budget. The Smythson tote is a handsome leather bag but unfortunately, it doesn’t come with zip closure.

For more affordable options, I would get the Cole Haan bag without second thoughts – if only it has a thicker base that can accommodate more documents.

For people on the more creative side, I’m sure you would prefer a bag with more character and prints! Tumi is known for its wide selection of document bags, but I can’t take my eyes off the abstract “Energy Print”. On the other hand,  Brahmin’s neon laptop bag is literally a highlighter!

What do you use as your document bag? Pray tell!

纵横职场也有好几年,本人竟然没有一个像样的公事包!现在每回出外开会,都携带公司发给员工的Lenovo电脑包,真是太不像话儿了。可是市场上女性公事包的选择看似不多,男生般的皮包又太粗矿单调。本人对Kate Spade的电脑包,以及3.1 Phillip Lim的31 hour皮包还挺有兴趣的。若您有任何建议,不妨与我分享!
