Now, this is not a sponsored post. The company has not contacted me, and I am expecting no compensation for what I'm saying. I seriously just love Lug bags. Maybe it's sentimentality (my first Lug bag was dragged around the festival site at Lollapalooza in 2008), maybe it's quality (that bag survived many trips after that), but you can't deny the best ringing endorsement for Lug bags is how easy it is to be organized using them.
My in-laws gave me a Lug bag (the Cable Car Satchel) for Christmas, to replace the now-looking-bedraggled-but-still-functional first Lug bag. I tried using it stash everything I'd need from morning to evening commute on the average work day, but it quickly became clear it could handle me... just not all the materials I needed for the overtime I suddenly found myself doing. Sure enough, Scott bought me the Cabbie Social for my birthday so he could stop carrying my books to the bus (perhaps this is the modern version of chivalry?!?).
Whether it's entertainment for the commute, reference materials for client meetings, leftovers for lunch, or mints, kleenexes and lozenges for any ears, nose and throat distress, it's quick, easy and it's at hand.
Why did I purchase this?
I grabbed this dress in 2009 at Value Village, attracted by the "vintage" Ricki's label. I place it about mid-80s.(Ricki's in a Canadian chain target ing young working women.Interesting and rather unknown fact: Ricki's started in my little hometown of Brandon Manitoba in 1939. It's still headquartered in Manitoba.)
Why did it work?
I love the idea of winter white in a winter knit. I also liked the length once I shortened it.
Why didn't it work?
The knit is pulling in places, the sleeves are a little 80s, and I am not inspired by it. Not to mention the fact that it is a touch sheer.
How have I worn it?
What will happen to it?
Back to Value Village, unless someone speaks up!
