Love my new laptop bag/briefcase/purse!

My handsome boyfriend gave to me a chic Coakley laptop bag/briefcase/purse for my 24th birthday!  The Coakley is a decidedly more feminine and elegant upgrade from my SwissGear black laptop bag.  I am most delighted.

^ It also has a zippered sleeve that can slide over the handle of my rolling luggage.  It looks great and stays secure while piggybacking on my luggage.

As part of a settlement, Coakley Business Class, LLC is handing over hundreds of its laptop bags to the Huddleston Law Firm.  The law firm is currently auctioning off hundreds of these bags in a variety of colors and textures (Timeless Tweed, Signature Suede, and Contemporary Classic).  To see all the colors and textures available, go to the official Coakley website.  If you are interested in making a bid, please contact James Carroll at  
The list price of the tweed Coakley everyday tote in Sand is $355, but you could win one at a much lower bid.  It resembles a purse, but it is designed to function as a laptop bag.  Women are winning these bags at bids lower than the sale prices on,,, and

I know I banned myself from shopping for shoes and clothes until November 14, but I cannot wait for these stunning shoes to arrive in H&M stores in November 2009!  I am so glad the Anna Sui for Target collection does not tempt me at all.

Classics never go out of style.

 I know it's not high fashion, but my friends look great in their classic American clothes.  We all need some great basics to wear, because they can continue to look good even years from now.  My striped green shirt, shorts, and purse are over two years old now.  It doesn't hurt to "shop your own closet" in this unstable economy when millions are losing their jobs.
Striped shirt and shorts: Abercrombie & Fitch
Shoes: Christian Louboutin (pink python pigalle 70)
