joining in the satchel bandwagon

I always get so envious whenever I see a satchel on a fashionista's arm :) popularized by brit Alexa Chung; this handbag trend is here to stay. At last people wouldn't be weirded out if I always bring a stylish carryall bag. 

Then a few days ago, the zipper of my trusty big bag jammed and broke! (which gives me a reason to shop for a new bag, ha ha!) I had to find a bag big enough to hold my net book, my phone, planner, wallet, keys and umbrella; so why not find a laptop bag instead of the usual satchel so that I'd have more bang for my buck. And then as I was stormed by A LOT of laptop bag choices (most of them were boring) I stumbled on Bratty Bonita Laptop bags!

Their bags has a Fixed Laptop sleeve, Padded with high density foam (Uratex) and Straps Long enough to wear on shoulder. Their bags are made with Russian and US Leatherette and has an interior divider, and best of all they have a variety of designs to choose from.

Initially I had my eyes set on this bag:

O di ba?! who would've thought that this was a laptop bag?! Gandooohh!!! :) But as I inquired with Ms. Thea, the owner of Bratty Bonita Bags, she suggested another bag design which I did not decline :) She just asked for my laptop dimensions and model so that she can find a suitable design for me, and she did! She suggested this Precious Style bag not just it has durable straps but it's very light weight. Rae is made with a heavy type of leather :) 

The hard part is choosing the color!
You can even have it made in two colors! :)

After a whole day I finally ended up with the midnight blue Precious Satchel! (5 tulog nalang mapapasa akin ka na,ahihi)  since most of their bags were customized I had to wait 5 working days for my bag to be finished.

very reminiscent of the midnight blue Proenza Schouler Satchel below

So if you want a reasonably priced and stylish laptop bag, check out Bratty Bonita's site for more designs and you won't be disappointed :)
