I managed to hold off since last fall… But, while wandering through Boston and saying, one too many times, “I really wish I had a Fronce (pronounced fron-say) tote,” I finally decided to spend my small amount of saved “fun” money (which takes a while to add up, by the way) on the bag I had been visiting online for about 4 months.
When I contacted Janine King with a question about the bag she very graciously offered to send along a bag for me to give away (she’s good like that).
So, at the left you can see my great bag. Don’t look at me, OK? It’s the bag we’re focusing on…
First- look how huge it is! It’s amazing how much stuff I have put in here! This past weekend I had a folder with confirmations for event, hotel & dining, two bottles of water, my wallet, camera, Flip, business cards, iPod, 9″ Acer laptop, Moleskine planner and makeup case in it. And I had room to spare! Dimensions: Approx 14” across the top, 16” tall, 18” across the bottom. 5” boxed corners at bottom
Second: I love that the strap is adjustable so I can carry it over my shoulder or across my body, depending on how much stuff I have in it. Shoulder strap adjusts from 22” to 42” allowing for most body types.
Third: I utilize this bag mainly for travel because it is roomy without being too dull and practical. It has three interior pockets for organization (think camera, video, iPod, pens, etc. Interior pockets: Two are approx 7″x7″ and one is approx 4″x6″) It also has a key clasp- which is great because your keys would be hard to find at the bottom of this bag! The bag doesn’t zip closed but the top is firmly interfaced to keep it upright and it almost molds to your body. Besides, a pickpocket would have to have some seriously long arms to get into the bottom of this bag without you knowing. (That said, you should carry your ID, passports & large amounts of cash on your person when you travel.)
For all the specs on this great bag visit Janine King Designs. While you’re there check out the huge sale she’s having! Bags are ready to ship and the prices are incredible! (I’ve already bought a gadget keeper for my iPod, a wristlet to match my mini computer sleeve and the Big Beautiful Tote in Bermuda Stripe Raspberry – it’s gorgeous! You should get the last one!)
