What stylish bag has the best inside organization?

Started 1295231549.733 in Fashion Talk | Last reply 1295319041.07 by glmama

Hi Ladies,

Okay, I am in the market for a new bag. I'm currently using one that is a giant black hole. And without some pockets/dividers inside my bag (and me!) can get verrrry messy. Is there a brand of bag-or a specific style-that is both stylish AND organized?

I don't like cross-body. Medium to large is generally my size. And I don't like a lot of hardware. I am semi-stalking a BMak bag in the sale area on Nordstrom.com. But I don't know how much organization this bag has.

Any ideas?

TIA:)

Thanks, Deb. I've been thinking about one of those purse organizers.

Ill let you know how it works out.. I hope its not going to make my bag heavy .. its heavy enough LOL

And I hope it fits right in my larger bag, and wont make it lopsided..

Might be nice though, cause I can never find my favorite lip gloss! Its always way on the bottom of my bag ..

Deb-You and me both with the lip gloss. I have an issue with receipts and little slips of paper--I would love a dedicated spot for all of that crud, too.

I have the purse organizer by Lori G and I LOVE it!! I bought the set of 3. I use the large one as I usually carry med to large bags. It is so nice just to have to move that between bags (I change bags alot!) It is perfect for those bags that are black holes!!

Hope that helps!

Oh I seen the Lori G , some people said it was heavy, but I liked the idea of the diff sizes.

So I ordered the other one the q had.

If that doesnt work, Im gonna try the lori g... since it has a larger size to it .

thanks for your post.

If you're not tied in to a leather bag...look on the verabradley.com website at her totes and larger purses...pockets and organization galore...if you don't like patterns, there are also solid black, navy etc...

Still attached to my Kipling bags. Got two from the Q. They don't always have them. These bags are made of high grade nylon. Spilled a bottle of water in one whole compartment once and it didn't leak thru into the side that had daughter's shot records unprotected! Every time I head to my closet for a change of bag, I just can't do it. The Kipling bags fit my lifestyle. And they are WAY organized.

PS Fergie-endorsed and very light-weight.

I smiled as I read this. Yesterday afternoon, I spent a bit of time cutting out all but the zipper pocket in a couple of new handbags.

The only pocket I want inside is the back wall zipper pocket. The others are a nuisance for me.

I bought the Q purse organizer too and have been using it for about 2 weeks and love it. I am going to get a lighter color one when I switch to my spring bags. It is awesome and keeps my hobo's from puddling.

ITA! The pursefection has been a lifesaver. Everything fits beautifully without spilling out and it makes switching bags, which I often, a breeze. LOVE it!

I'm a huge fan of Kate Spade bags, specifically the Quinn style.

Currently in the sale section of the KS Web site, there is a Knightsbridge Quinn style offered in three colors: red, graphite, and snapdragon. Today is the last day for an additional 25% off.

The inside of the bag has a center zippered compartment, effectively dividing the bag. There is another zippered compartment on one side of the bag, and two pockets on the other side. These pockets can hold a cellphone.

The bag (to me) is very stylish and is great for organization. Nothing gets lost in here!

I don't know about all of his handbags because I have only one but Marc Jacobs makes a nice handbag and the one I have is loaded with organization and is lined in suede, which is softer and nicer than the silk in mho.

Kate Spade Wellesley Quinn does it for me! Very sturdy with great stay put pockets.

dakota-Thank you. I used to wear a lot of fabric or nylon bags. And I DO like them, but I am yearning for a leather bag for some reason.

Loves to teach--I will check out the Kiplings--thank you. :)

kathleen-You must be more organized by nature than I am. :) Seriously, tho, I don't want a Travelon bag or something with loads of tiny compartments. But feel that something with maybe two or three areas and perhaps an outside pocket or two.

Jayro-I've been liking a bunch of Kate Spade lately so I will look this one up. :)

Moria-I have a Marc Jacobs from a few years ago that I adored and wore to death. It's still in good shape and it's this great grey color and has a few outside pockets. I will check out his newer ones.
