I Bought A Purse Today

Okay, technically it's an "iPad bag", but I'm fully aware it's a purse.

But I'm tired of carrying my keys, my headphones, my wallet, my whatever else in my pockets. Plus, I really do want to use it to carry my ipad.

If you're worried about it looking pansy or whatever, I see lots of men with a backpack.

Give us a link, OP, so we can see what it looks like.

She made it herself. Isn't it purty?

R2, it's nothing fancy:

It not a purse, it a mans carry-all!

Simple is good. It looks manly. You are defined by how you act, not always by perceived fashion accessories. Strut and go forth!

by Anonymousreply 606/22/2013

OP, that looks metrosexual. I see urban guys with bags like those.

by Anonymousreply 706/22/2013

Just ordered one too.

by Anonymousreply 806/22/2013

A worthy purchase, OP.

by Anonymousreply 906/22/2013

That doesn't look bad, OP. In fact, I may order it. I currently carry a messenger bag to work, but it's so bulky. I spent over $100 on it too, but if I'm being honest, it's main purpose if for me to just carry around a few things like a notepad, some chapstick, my keys ... I hate carrying such a big bag when it's really unnecessary but I didn't want to carry anything smaller because I would have felt like I was carrying a purse.

Rather unstylish.

OP, be honest. You didn't buy it. It fell out of your mouth.

Just make sure that it matches your shoes.

Gosh, OP. Why did you buy one instead of waiting a little while longer for one fall out of your mouth?

Why is everyone asking OP to "man it up"? I'm a total top and love nelly bottoms. I love your pocketbook, Princess, and might even buy some new ones for your birthday.

Don't forget your moisturizer, lip balm, sunscreen, hairspray and mouthwash.

How could it be a "vintage" iPad case?

by Anonymousreply 3306/27/2013

R32, which color did you get? I got the black. It seems very durable. I can put my iPad, my keys, headphones and my work badge in there. Perfect.

If you drive, don't leave it on top of your car with your $5.00 latte.

Don't forget to carry a can of pepper spray. When thieves see a man carrying a purse, they think "easy target!"

by Anonymousreply 3606/29/2013

I was looking at ipad backpacks and noticed that all of them had the ipad accessible from behind. Meaning if you're walking down the street, person can come up behind you, open your backpack and grab your ipad. I imagine it would be easy to pull off if two people are working together and the first person stumbles in front of you or collides with you and the second person busies himself getting your ipad out.

by Anonymousreply 3706/29/2013

I gots the gray one.

OP, how did your purse work out? I'm curious because I think I'm gonna buy one. TIA

It's a MURSE!

I guess it will suffice until your Birkin Bag is ready.

by Anonymousreply 4106/14/2014

Wear it with a simple black dress, a single strand of pearls, and basic black heels. Keep the earrings simple, perhaps pearl studs.

by Anonymousreply 4206/14/2014

I have that same bag! It's convenient, because it does zip up. So I just throw my gum and chapstick in there. So yeah I total use it as a purse! But I do keep my iPad in there and no one has ever called it a purse or questioned it. Some people have even asked where I got it.

by Anonymousreply 4306/14/2014

There doesn't seem to be a gray option anymore (khaki, black or olive.) But OP should get a kickback, because I ordered one, too! Although I'm a little concerned because even though the description says it's padded, the reviews seem to indicate that it's not. Oh well, for $13 I don't really care as long as it fits my tablet (not an iPad) and my Kindle.

by Anonymousreply 4406/14/2014

To tap into this season's tribal trend OP, you are going to want to stitch some suede fringing along the bottom of the purse.

Then, invest in armfulls of fun beaded bracelets in an assortment of clashing colors and some monochrome chunky wooden bangles.

Add a pair of roomy animal print cotton pants and you are all set for S/S 2014 honey!

Why don't we get some embroidered with the Datalounge logo! Then we can all buy them and be like members of a club!

Oh, Mary, you haven't enjoyed the ultimate bag experience until you've owned a hands-free, cross body bag. It's also gives would be thieves that "don't mess with me" vibe, and it will never,ever slide off your shoulder. Fab!

Always buy one in black, and another in a fun color or print. You won't be sorry !

I don't know where you live, OP, but in New York almost everyone carries some kind of bag. The fear of having it called a "purse" and therefore being feminized seems silly to me.

by Anonymousreply 5006/14/2014

I couldn't live without my Quiksilver-brand waist pack. I let the strap all the way out, and wear it bandolier-style across my chest.

This particular bag has three outer pockets, plus three interior pockets. And the strap easily unbuckles so I can secure it to a chair when I'm sitting at a sidewalk cafe to foil thieves.

It's big enough to carry everything I need: business cards; reading glasses; sunglasses; medications; loose change; cellphone; wallet; iPhone earbuds; tooth picks and dental floss.

Amazon sells them for $20 each.

by Anonymousreply 5106/14/2014

I've carried one for the last 5 years. Who the fuck cares. As long as you're not dragging a dead cat around in it or something.

Now, why is there no "Let's create Datalounge brand merchandise" thread. A DL embroidered cross-body urban essentials murse would certainly be on the list.

You carry deodorant around with you during the day? Credit cards go inside my wallet, which goes in my trouser pocket.

My bag is green, from L L Bean.

A Bean Bag ?

Purse? Puhleeze, every urban gay needs a bag.

I bought this monster from Briggs and Riley years ago and it has been through hell and back and stood up well. Briggs and Riley have a lifetime warranty as well. I originally bought it to haul my big ass laptop on work trips, but now I use it for my Ipad, keyboard, gym clothes, groceries and every other fucking thing I can think of.

Since I live in a city and don't drive I need a bag that will hold everything I'm going to do that day.
