Handbags – A Proud Statement Of Personal Style & Women’s Independence!

We love making gorgeous laptop bags for women here at My Best Friend is a Bag and although we know that you can’t buy happiness, buying a bag is almost the same thing – right?! But why?

Valentine’s Day Gifts For The Practical Giver!

Valentine’s Day Gifts For The Practical Giver!

If you are anything like our partners, you love a practical gift. Take my husband for example, he is incredibly generous and always spoils me rotten at Xmas and birthdays etc. However as lavish as his gifts are, they are always practical (E.g. Laptop, iPad, Robovac, TV  – I think the TV was more of a gift for him; but hey, I’m not complaining, I’m a mad Netflix girl.). The best thing about receiving a gift from my husband is actually witnessing the excitement on his face when I open…

4 ways Shopping is good for you.

Retail Therapy. It’s real.   Retail Therapy is used as an excuse by all the shopaholics out there, but did you know that retail therapy is real? According to research, there are four ways in which shopping can boost your mood. Firstly, it helps ease major life changes. It’s a form of mental preparation for welcoming the new through visualization and preparation for what is to come. Secondly, shopping is known for being a sure mood uplifter. We all can vouch for that. Be it unpacking a parcel from an online…

The color you wear says a lot about your mood. What color are you wearing today?

Did you know that the colors we surround ourselves with on a daily basis, has a significant effect on our moods? On a subconscious level, we associate colors we see with different emotions, events, themes and various other ideas. They contribute and enhance our visual stimulation. Just like colors are used to stimulate different moods by designers to create a certain atmosphere, the colors we choose to wear everyday can make a statement that reflects our attitude. We’ve got a few popular color ideas for you and what they signify. What…

Briefcases for Women Shouldn’t Be Boring

Briefcases for Women Shouldn’t Be Boring

If you think Briefcases for Women, what do you have in mind? Black, boring and rather masculine looking work bags? Bags which are practical but far from being stylish? Well if I think of Briefcases for Women I think of a handbag, which gets me through the day, no matter how busy it is. I think of bright colors, a roomy and practical inside with a beautiful outside. Just because we mean Business, it doesn’t mean that we have to give up our style. So I personally like my Laptop…

Winter is too cold for buying clothes – buy a bag instead! It all started the other day when I thought it would be time for adding some new items to my winter wardrobe; but what started out as a fun shopping day, ended in absolute frustration. I mean first of all taking all those layers of clothes off was absolutely exhausting and the way the lighting in the changing room then made my pale legs look like in the mirror, didn’t make me feel any better!

Navy Bags for Women that Work as Hard as You Do.

Navy Bags for Women that Work as Hard as You Do.

  Navy Blue is a Wonderful Fashion Colour. Its not as harsh as Black, not as bold as Red and in an office environment, Dark Blue represents honesty and integrity. It’s also a colour that also signifies peace and calm. Great sentiments to be associated with in a busy working office. Navy Blue has long been considered a great corporate colour – think of all the men you know who wear Navy Suits. Its our turn now. There’s lots of navy around in women’s clothing but so hard to find it suitable work accessories. My Best…

Colour is the new Black

Colour is the new Black

Autumn has arrived.  I don’t know about you but I am bored with my summer clothes and have been itching to get the winter wardrobe out of storage.   The beauty of living in Melbourne is the seasons.  I have to say, as much as I love summer, I love wearing layers of clothing.  Its so much easier to look smart and together in Winter.  In summer, no matter how I start out, by the end of the day I always look a bit limp and worn. Being Melbourne, when I…

If you haven’t discovered an on-line store called BirdsNest then you’re missing out on a great shopping experience. This summer they started stocking our bags and we’re thrilled. The girls at Birds Nest have a great way of showing the products on their site.  They not only do the traditional Dresses, Shirts, Bags, Shoes etc, they also have a section that groups things according to end use. So if you’re looking for something to wear to the races, or the beach, or a cocktail party then they have made it really easy…

Making the 2014 Colour Trends Work.

I love the way all the fashion magazines do articles on what the hot colours and shapes are for the new year.  Although when you’re looking at a designer parade, with a 6+foot model its really hard to work out what this means for you, and how you could possibly adapt the trend into something that you could wear to work. So, here are a couple of ideas: Colour Trend 1:  BLACK AND WHITE This shot combines 2 trends really.  One is black and white and the other is the mix of…

What to Wear to Work – The Power Suit is Back

What to Wear to Work – The Power Suit is Back

I recently read that the Power Suit is Back. Personally, I’m thrilled.  I’ve always loved dressing up. I keep harping on about what you wear to work and why its so important to make a killer first impression. Looking sharp in a great suit is a sure way to say you mean business. That doesn’t mean you have to look too fierce. I love the combination of masculine and feminine. I love a masculine jacket, pants, lace up brogues and a soft shirt, or the same suit with killer heels. Suit jackets with skirts…

What to Wear to Work – What Your Business Bag Says About You

What to Wear to Work – What Your Business Bag Says About You

One of the major motivations for starting My Best Friend is a Bag and designing our fabulous Leather Shopper Business Bag was whenever I was sitting outside, or leaving the Melbourne South Bank building I used to work in, I would see business women, all dressed really well but carrying a handbag that looked like an empty sack and all their other bits and pieces (laptops, papers and files) in supermarket shopping bags! It always gave me a shock that someone would spend so much time and effort to look great and…

What to Wear to Work – Why Animal Print Works

What to Wear to Work – Why Animal Print Works

You can’t open a magazine at the moment without seeing animal print. Every animal known to man, and some that aren’t, are currently on the runways for the next European winter season. Personally, I love a bit of animal print but seeing so much around has made me ponder a few things. 1. Animal Print and Age. In all the current shots of European women covered in animal print from head to toe, the women are definitely below 35. I think this is becoming a new rule. Too much animal print and older…

We’re Mad About Colour

We’re Mad About Colour

Over the last month we ran a competition asking our Facebook Friends what colour they really wanted us to include in our next range. I got a real shock when Teal won by a mile.  Don’t get me wrong, its a beautiful colour. I just hadn’t realised it would be so popular. So Teal it is.  Now I just have to find a great shade of Teal to include in the range! We’ve got some big things planned for our next business bags for women range. We’re doing 2 new Laptop Totes, a…

Stylish Office Fashion – Trends You Can Wear to the Office

It’s all very well for magazine editors to show us all the latest trends every month but the reality of life is that most days we get dressed to go to work.  Its not easy coming up with stylish office fashion five days a week! We may salivate over the wonderful outfits on the runways of Paris and New York but what does that mean for me when I get out of bed and head to the office? I thought I might have a look at what was on line at…

Navy is the new Black

Navy is the new Black

Fashion is a funny old thing. When I was designing and colour-planning my current range of bags, every trend and colour report I saw, and every accessory/runway report from the US and Europe was telling me that I HAD to have Navy in my range of bags.  That Navy is the new Black this season. So I did. Both my Laptop Tote Bag and leather Laptop Bag are available in Navy. Then I waited for the sales. The Truffle, the Burnt Orange, and the Animal Print Ocelot rocketed off the shelves.  Black, of course, always…

Business Bags for Women Don’t Have to Be Boring!

If you’re a business woman with a sense of fashion and style, you could be forgiven for thinking that no-one is designing laptop bags with you in mind. I’m here to tell you, they’re out there if you know where to look! The same principles apply for men and women when you’re buying a great business bag: your particular needs, your budget and your personal style. As a woman, if you attend lots of meetings and know how important those first 3 opinion forming minutes are when you walk into the room,…
