Perfect! Along with a matching hobo bag, I now have my perfect purse combo.
on March 6, 2015
I am a big Baggallini fan and I think that this is going to be THE bag for me! It's very compact, but there's a lot of room inside of it! I like to be pretty light when I get around anyway, so this gives me more than enough space for my cell phone, ipod, keys, cards, more cards, pen, lipstick, some change, work security pass and a few other odds and ends. This will be my light, running around bag.
(For days when I need more "stuff" I'll stash this little bag inside my Baggallini hobo bag and will also be able to carry my iPad and a water bottle....)
Update: With my Baggallini hobo bag, I now have the perfect Baggallini system! I have three "modes": heavy (when I need my iPad, possibly water bottles and other items), medium (everyday, when I like to remain quite light, just cash, cards, cell phone, keys and a few other necessities) and super light (when I am on a walk in the neighborhood and just need my keys, id, cash and cell phone.
Here's how it works. My Baggallini Everyday Bagg is the core and acts as my "wallet" with all its clever compartments and organization. This is my medium, run around bag. I keep things pretty slim and it remains quite light, but in addition to everything I normally carry (listed above), there's still plenty of room for a stack of gift cards, hair bands, a small Leatherman and there's still plenty of room in the spacious inside (where I keep my bulky set of keys) if I needed to carry a paperback or a few other things. I keep my cell and my ipod in the back pocket, held closed with a curiously strong magnetic clasp, which keeps them both very handy.
For work days, I toss my Everyday Bagg into my Hobo bag. My Everyday Bagg acts as a wallet. For convenience's sake, I put my keys into the front pocket and my mobile phone into the convenient pocket on the hobo. There's plenty of room for my iPad inside and I put two water bottles on the outside pockets. Everything matches and everything looks fantastic together!
For neighborhood walks, I still want something to carry my keys, id and a little cash, plus my cell phone and ipod. On those instances I take the little zippered coin purse that came with the hobo bag and attach the strap for the Everyday Bagg onto it -- they look like a perfect match for each other! (I'm so glad I got them both the same color!) This keeps me hands-free on my jaunts around the neighborhood!
I've been very happy with this combo. Love the Everyday Bagg on its own, but with the hobo, things are exponentially better!
I think it's super cute!
The only downside: some descriptions mention a cell phone pocket. I can't figure out where that might be. I'd assumed it would be a pocket inside the main compartment, but there isn't one... oh well! I'm stashing my cell in the outside pocket, but with only a magnetic clasp holding it in, it feels a tiny bit insecure, but I don't want my cell phone rattling around in the main compartment getting scratched up by my keys....
