I have been told many times by my chiropractor that I need to carry a backpack. My bags are quite heavy and contribute to my back pain. I am also lopsided at times. If I had a backpack that was made from such beautiful leather, then I would consider the idea. My excuse has always been that I have not found the right bag.

The Urban backpack from M0851

Double head zipper closure for central pocket

3 compartments, 3 slot patch pocket (ipod/office pocket), and cell phone/keys detachable clip.

Front and back zipper closure pockets

Double head zipper closure for trunk pocket

Includes a padded roll-up mat with leather border ideal for sitting on in a park or stadium, or changing a baby.

Price $395.00 Canadian

Impulse Buy

If you buy something on the spur of the moment, how soon afterwards do you regret the purchase? 

My first response to that question would be if I spent more than I could afford for the bag.

However, one month ago I purchased a bag at Forever 21. It was the first time I went to the store and I saw a bag that was cute and cheap.  Unfortunately, cute and cheap did not cut it. The bag has already fallen apart. I only used the bag a couple of times. When I pulled the bag from a pile I noticed that the buckle was broken. Later in the day I found a piece under my desk at work. Now I do not want to even look at the bag. I would rather spend more money on a bag that will last years, than buy something trendy and cheap.

Girl Friday

I purchased this cute purse last Thursday at Girl Friday during the Chick Advisor Shop Crawl. It was inevitable that one of my purchases would be a bag. I saw the bag and I thought that it would be perfect for my vacation. I will use it at night. The bag can either be held by the handle or folded and carried as a clutch.

The bag also came in black, gold, bronze and aqua.
