Fashion Dreams – Senreve Bag

Imagine a bag that’s stylish AND practical, big enough for everything (including your laptop) BUT doesn’t look like a duffel bag, can be over-the-shoulder, on your arm, cross body AND a backpack?
Sounds like the unicorn of handbags.
Well Senvere have made it and I want it, NOW!

I first saw Senreve’s Maestra Bag on Cupcakes & Cashmere and then shortly after it popped up on Gal Meets Glam and I’ve been stalking it ever since!

Ain’t it just sooo perdy?

While writing this post I spent a good 10 minutes justifying to my (male) housemate why this is such an amazing bag. At first he didn’t get why you wouldn’t just use a laptop bag and why you would want the backpack option. But after pointing out that this is designed for business women who care about the way they look and presumably are making a fair bit more money than we do (not that that’s hard) and would use it not just for day to day work, but also for travel – making the cross body and backpack options super useful! – even he came round to the idea.

At $895 USD (around $1,200 AUD) I won’t be able to afford it any time soon (but will gladly accept as a gift if anyone is offering). So below I have compiled some much more affordable, yet not as versatile, options below.

Living in the inner north of Melbourne means that parking is often a issue. If you are lucky enough to find a park its likely there will be a time restriction and probably a fee. That is why I’m endeavoring to use public transport (or PT as we like to call it) as much as possible. This has meant that I often have to take a back pack with me, but now its warming up its good to know I can chuck a clean pair of undies and a simple dress in my handbag to get me through two days of work without lugging around half my life on my back!
