Have you ever lugged your laptop and several pairs of brick-heavy heels from one place to the next, all crammed into a bag that wasn't designed to hold your bounty of stuff? Your back hurts, you feel the burn in your decidedly un-Madonna-like triceps, and you start to bitterly wonder if you actually need any this crap anyway.
Our everyday totes and purses, though pretty, just weren't designed to transport computers and winter shoes and an emergency makeup kit and all of life's other little necessities. Plus, to add insult to (potential) injury, it's near-impossible to find functional bags that aren’t total eyesores.
That’s why we were pretty stoked to discover the supremely-useful-yet-completely-cute options from local brand Lo & Sons. The offerings include messenger, gym, laptop, and overnight bags, and — get this — they're all 40% off through December! Streamlined and super-chic in classic, wear-with-everything colors, they complement the true focus of stylish types — the outfits, duh — while still serving a practical purpose. With the discount, bags range from $30 to $250.75, with free shipping and returns, so if you'd like to schlep in style, you're in luck. Click through to see our favorite styles and find your own cute carryall.
