These Bags Are NSFW – Not That We Care

Too small for a folder, too ostentatious for a meeting, too noisy even within a cubicle, but do we care? Nope.
|

When one thinks of the “suitable” office bag, the mind flies straightaway to a reasonably-sized tote, possibly in black, equipped with a cross-body strap and about a million pockets both inside and outside for gum, keys, spare change and cards. They’re functional, they’re no-nonsense, they’re easy. They’re basically capable of becoming mini offices. The sturdier ones can even double as makeshift desks. (Come on, you’ve totally done it before on the train.)

There’s nothing wrong with the Little Black Bag. In fact, we’re all for it. But here’s the thing – some days are just bad work days. Your boss has been getting on your hind for the last week and a half, your cubicle mate cannot stop going on about that obscure show that only she watches and you still have to lug your giant house of a bag to that weekly after-hours thing you do with your girlfriends. What the hell is in the bag that is making it so heavy, anyway?

Times like these call for a sartorial pick-me-up. Killer shoes have the power to kick an outfit awake, much like an expresso. A really great bag, no matter how impractical or NSFW (that is, Not Suitable For Work), could just turn your shitty work week into a good one. So what if it looks like it could actually injure somebody? Or that it is literally a stuffed animal with straps attached to it? Or a subtle way to comment on your douche of a boss? If it fits the cash, cards, your office pass and a lipstick, and it makes your daily case of the Weekday Blues disappear, we think you’re good. Gives you more reason to leave the work laptop behind, too. A bag detox that leads to a mind detox. Ahhh.
