love the bags, but the thing is, after a while, maybe 2 weeks or so, my shoulder starts to hurt a lot, & switching shoulders can only do so much. do you ever find yourself having this problem, esp with a laptop? i walked the berk campus hills each day for the past 4 yrs (whoo graduated!) and found it easiest to lug around my laptop & notebooks in a backpack, and probably a textbook in my hand.

I only really run into problems when I try to carry laptop + notebook(s) + book. Usually, I just grin and bear it. And given the right backpacks (see above) you can look pretty spiffy, imo.
CoedUgly on September 05
Yeah, I know what you mean. I always keep my bag on my left shoulder (for some reason, I can't but bags on my right... weird balancing problem or something) and it definitely hurts a bit after a while. Bags with thicker straps help, though. and the messenger strap lets me switch shoulders decently. A lot of people I know only carry around notebooks or just a laptop, which are relatively light.

Awwww I love love love your schoolbag so much! May I steal it? I also think leather bags are the best, you buy them once and have them forever because they are very hard to break. The only sad thing is that they are so expensive. I'm also used to have big bags for school/university as I have to carry around a lot of stuff like my sketch book, laptop, pencil case, etc.
CoedUgly on September 05
You could stalk ebay! I got my bag for $250! Still pricey, but way cheaper than usual.

Love the bags esp the red satchel!!!
orsola on September 05
very nice bag! though, it would have been too small for me (i use the past because i've finished school since long hehe)
CoedUgly on September 05
Yeah, it's definitely still too small for me sometimes, but I try to limit myself. If I try carrying any more, my shoulder will definitely hurt!

CoedUgly on September 05
Yeah! Thrift stores and vintage shops are great places to find used leather bags at good prices! That's where I get most of my bags, though I'll have the occasional splurge.
jazzyhwang on September 04
your bag is amazing! definitely chic (: love your choices too, especially the red satchel!
lindseyxoxo on September 04
i'm like drooling over your bag, it's quite amazing ^_^
CoedUgly on September 04
Thanks! I did the same for like a year before I finally found it at a price that wouldn't force me to starve for a month (or 2), haha.

CoedUgly on September 04
Have you tried vintage/thrift stores? You can usually find some great bags for low prices!
annajyu on September 04
I've been saving up for a bag from the cambridge satchel co! Great minds think alike... =)
