Travel Accessories Review: My Best Friend Is A Bag

By: Joanna Hall
Share the love

I've had a long love affair with handbags, and have to admit to having a wardrobe full of them. For me a handbag is not only practical, but it's also a major statement, adding colour or pizzazz to your overall look. When I travel, however, practicality often take top spot in my checklist for what I need in a bag; just because you want to be practical, however, doesn't mean you have to sacrifice either quality or style. 


One tote I came across recently and love for everyday use as well as travel, is the the Chelsea tote from My Best Friend Is A Bag, an online retailer selling beautiful and stylish bags with plenty of practicality, for busy working women. Not only does this particular bag look great, but it doubles up as a laptop bag; it will carry up to a 13" laptop, and can carry all manner of other everyday essentials such as your wallet, keys, beauty products and more. 


Some of the tote's many features include a zipper which runs the rule length of the outside of the bag, allowing you to see right to the bottom when open - a great design element - and there's also a clip for your keys. The bag is padded, and the long handles will slip over your shoulder easily too, but there's also a detachable strap if you want, or need, to be totally hands free. The bag is made from high quality faux snakeskin and patent, making it durable yet light at the same time and it comes in five fabulous colours; navy, pink, natural snakeskin, tan and teal. 


Janie Bartlett is the owner of My Best Friend Is A Bag, based in Melbourne. The company ethos is simple; the bags have to fashionable and feminine, as well as look good, but also they need to be practical and reasonably priced. All the bags on this website are well made and designed to be durable, but they look great providing long-lasting fashion. Bags are divided into useful categories, from laptop bags to shoppers and baby bags, and they tap into colour trends on the catwalk. Either way you'll find something here you love as I did. I can't wait for my next long haul trip to try it out for real!
