When my Veronica London laptop bag arrived, the first thing I noticed is that it was very well made.  It appeared quite sturdy and capable of securely holding my laptop.  My friend, Renee, was heading out of town, so I offered her the use of the Career Bag so it could be tested during travel.

001

Once Renee returned she offered up her opinion on how the bag worked for her.  First, she noted that the bag comes with a padded case for her laptop which ensured that her laptop would travel safely.  The front flap is just for decoration, but the inside of the bag had an extra pocket and places to store your pens or other personal items.  The handles were long enough to carry the bag on her shoulder and were comfortable.  This laptop bag was big enough to accommodate Renee’s needs on her trip as well.

summary

With the kids going back to school (or maybe you just need a new accessory!), Career Bags is a great place to shop.  While looking around the website, I found many quality and na careerbagspink me brand items that I would love to own.  One of my favorite was this Laurex Laptop Messenger Bag:

Career Bags offers much more than laptop cases!  I found great deals on handbags, luggage, and backpacks.  Right now, Career Bags also has great deals on Back to School items for under $75 plus free shipping!
