I’m always on the hunt for medium-sized bags with a big city attitude. I’m not sure how it is everywhere else, but here in NYC, we carry everything but the proverbial kitchen sink in our daily bags. Leaving the apartment means toting essentials for the rest of our day because the majority of us don’t drive to work and therefore do not have the added storage space that a car allows for. So on top of the regular load - cosmetic bag, planner, mints, cell phone and wallet - we bag reading material for the train, iPod, water bottle, hair taming devices, umbrellas, and perhaps a change of shoes for a night out. But even while we’re loaded down with all these things, we still want to feel chic and look streamlined. This Tufi Duek Chainlink shoulder bag may just be the trick. In a buttery navy leather with gold hardware, it looks rich enough for a night out but still unobtrusive enough for a day at the office. Its unusual shape and pocket placement lends it a sophisticated air without looking too snooty. At 40% off its retail of $1,116, this day to night bag is a sound investment. Pick it up at Bluefly for $670.
