Mom Purse with a Working Upgrade: Fashion Editor by Thirty-One

April 9, 2015

I have a love/hate relationship with purses. I’ve never been a purse kind of girl, but it wasn’t because I didn’t like them or see the need. It was because I needed to have the perfect purse. Every time. So this led to spending hours shopping and leaving frustrated that all the ideal purses were $$$ when¬†I could just be a little more bohemian and buy a cloth one for $15.

Which I did. Several times. And always hated them.

For the past few months, I’ve been using the Fashion Editor from Thirty-One – part of their new Jewell line. Because I have southern friends, I’ve heard about Thirty-One for years ūüėČ but I haven’t ever owned a product of theirs. The description stated, “perfect for work, with a zippered laptop pocket” and I was sold.

I carry my laptop with me several days a week to work after therapy/when Bella has her classes and had been starting to think I needed a purse that was meant to carry one – with padding. I had the world’s ugliest laptop bag I’ve been using for two years, but thankfully one of the cats finally barfed on it and freed me from the feeling that I had to keep taking it with me.

The Fashion Editor is this purse that hits every mark I have in my head for a purse. Like someone who makes a list for a potential spouse, I have a purse list.

  1. Good sized
  2. Neutral color
  3. No slip straps
  4. Several pockets (but not too many)
  5. Place for a cell phone
  6. Somewhere to clip my keys

I wanted to be able to fit my giant glass water bottle, a Macbook Air, and whatever animal Bella insisted she needed until we got to where we were going. Plus all my other stuff.

I love how lightweight this bag is, even when crammed full of stuff. I also love that my laptop sits in it securely, and the cell phone pocket on the outside has a little magnetic clasp. Now that I see the quality of their bags, I find myself looking at the women in my food co-op who bring their cute Thirty-One totes with them every week, and thinking how handy that would be too.

I can say that not only am I a big fan of their products now, but also what they stand for. Thirty-One Gives lists ways they are involved in giving back through partners like:

 

Interested in purchasing a Fashion Editor bag or seeing what else Thirty-One has to offer? Find a consultant (or ask your friends- more than likely someone is one!) and check out their entire Jewell line as well.

 

I was not paid for this review but did receive the Thirty-One Fashion Editor for review. Thank you to Thirty-One!
