I’ve been a shoe gal for years. Years and years and years. And then for some more years after those years. I never thought I’d give a hoot about handbags because I never had. Before I launched the blog, I hunted down and found my perfect everyday bag and I bought it and carried it diligently every day for the next five years. But then something shifted. I have absolutely no idea why, but I took an interest in handbaggery after ages of indifference and have been slowly accumulating a nice little collection for various occasions and uses.

Reader Eva asked:
How do you schlep everything around while looking cute and not hurting your back? Carry everything in one bag, or more than one bag? Are backpacks terminally unstylish?

What do you do with this, especially if you’re smaller of stature or also need to shop, carry a child, etc.?

Abby e-mailed me this request:
My request would be a post about college and fashion–suggestions, a basic wardrobe guide, anything like that. I don’t know how many college students make up your demographic, but as a college student, I would definitely appreciate some tips on how to maintain a stylish, ‘fresh’ wardrobe while being limited by both closet space and budget.
The timing of this post may be off depending on where you live and when your school gears up, but I wanted to take a stab at this request!
