Q: I'm tired of carrying around a big purse—I waste so much time rummaging through it to find what I need. Can you recommend a bag that isn't too big but keeps my essentials organized?
A: There's nothing worse than an overstuffed purse—and I find the bigger the bag, the more things you throw in it. The solution? This ingenious satchel by Etienne Aigner. First, it shatters the myth that functional is boring with its gorgeous, pebbled leather exterior and chic color blocking. And it offers 15 (!) pockets to hold everything from your wallet to your Kindle to your keys in separate, easy-to-access compartments. Finally, though it's only seven inches tall, 14 inches long, and two inches wide, its accordion design expands to hold more than you'd think. Love!
