My husband is often infuriated by the large number of handbags, totes, laptop bags and other "sacks which are appropriate to hold my stuff for different occasions". He is learning to get over it, as I love bags.
I have been coveting this bag for quite some time. I think it may be the handbag of my dreams. I'm not sure. I have the messenger bag in carbon black, but it is too small for my 15" mac book pro and seems like overkill for my day to day handbag and netbook needs. Perhaps I could work out a swap with someone.
I have the original flat Roots leather bag, which is fantastic. I have had occasional small problems with it (once I broke a clasp and currently one of the pockets is coming undone). I emailed customer service and mailed it in, and it came back fixed. I need to mail it back but I can't give it up without a new bag. I realize that is silly because I have a half dozen bags on the first floor and another bunch upstairs. But I can't do it. I think I may have a bag addiction.
