There’s a convertible bag out there with your name on it. Trying to toughen up? Think hardware. Need motivation to use that gym membership? A chic new nylon tote should do the trick.

Where did you find your Trish bag? I want one too! In smoked grey or pearl…but I can’t find it online. Any tips?

Already done for me :) WeSC’s Trish bag in blue iris. Been wanting this bag for at least a year, but it fits 2010 nicely so far.

I love them all…and the Urban bag holds up amongst the higher end bags as well. That said, the Givenchy bag would be worth it if it was leather and not nylon.
