Every morning when I awake I am besieged by many thoughts-what is my schedule again,
where am I going, what am I doing, etc, etc. All these questions I affront with ease:
with my trusty agenda by my side I laugh in the face of disorganization. However,
without fail every morning there arrives that one moment when I must draw upon every
ounce of zeal I posses to answer that one question which trounces all the others in
its complexity - how in the world am I going to fit all of today's precious
necessities into one fashionable, style worthy bag?

I know I am not alone in this style challenge. Everywhere I go I see enormous
backpacks on, purses bursting at the seams, ready to give in at a
moment's notice to the physical pressure of that all-important Calculus book stuffed
in between notebooks and binders (know that I myself have been the victim of the
bag-breaking scenario, and let me just say, one does not know the meaning of
mortification until one sees the contents of one's purse fall in an awesome heap down
the steps of the Louvre, obscuring the movements of some very large groups of
Japanese tourists and eliciting the French tirades of some very persnickety museum
personnel).  However, I have yet to see one of our European counterparts fall prey to
this daily accessory dilemma. And yet, I know they have just as much work as we do:
they accomplish the same things we do in a day (all right, perhaps with more coffee
breaks and long leisurely lunches, but still). How do they do it - how do they write
that research paper, present that thesis, for heaven's sake even run errands, without
a severely oversized, heavy, arm-numbing bag?

The answer I have discovered lies in the all-forgiving leather satchel. I have seen
countless Parisian women biking on their Velibs (that wonderful chic public bike
system) with this accessory in the front basket. I've seen self-possessed Italian
businessmen carrying it with pride to their board meetings, and students effortlessly
lifting the hallmarks of their trade - those previously pesky books - on their way to
class.  The leather satchel, unlike its fabric counterparts, has a natural give which
allows the bag to contour itself to fit all those indispensable daily necessities,
allowing one also to fit the various wallet and/or makeup bag into its nooks and
crannies. Ingeniously, the satchel can be worn by both men and women - a truly
democratic fashion statement.

The satchel comes in a variety of styles, but the shape remains the same: a large,
roomy sack with comfortable handles and strap to accommodate every possible manner of
portability. Note that while you might spend a bit more for a leather satchel, the
daily return on it is more than worth it - just ask the many students returning from
Study Abroad Programs with said satchel in hand.  No more mid-morning panic as you
try to stuff that last notebook into an un-pliable purse, no more awkward niceties
when you try to explain why your backpack keeps bumping people behind you in line at
Subway!  Topshop currently has the answer for an investment of $65.00: all hail
freedom from the stress of books! Well, at least until one reaches the sanctuary of
the library.
