There is a marginal, albeit obnoxious conundrum that comes up for a select few twenty-something female New Yorkers when Memorial Day Weekend swings around to formally inaugurate the beginning of summer and it goes like this:
You’ve been here long enough to accrue a group of friends that is large enough for you to conceivably rent a share house with at a reasonable weekly-cost. This house will function as your respite from the city’s heat. Every Friday, you will take an overnight bag to work and as you shimmy into your office, you will count down the seconds until you can yell, “summer Friday hits me where it hurts so good,” once again.
At that point, you will lift your over-night bag, which you hate passionately, over your shoulders and head toward a train station that will indubitably shave years off your life span and once you finally get on that train, you will think to yourself, man, I wish this over-night bag was cooler.
Am I right?
Not even a little?
Well, in any case, I have finally found the solution and it is a green suede rectangular tote from Roztayger, an e-comm site that prides itself on boasting a selection of handbags and accessories that are otherwise difficult to acquire in the U.S.
And like a good pair of jeans, the bag in question works whenever you need it to. Take it away on weekends. Use it as a work bag. Keep your computer in it, or don’t. Take it to the gym. Throw wallets (I’m keen on these cardholders by Abitax) and a smaller clutch, full of tampons, in it. Fill it with organic green juice if you want to or do none of the above — just love it.
And then tell me YOU HATED YOUR OVERNIGHT BAG AND ARE SO GLAD TO HAVE FOUND A NEW ONE!
