    So, I thought my search for the perfect travel bag had ended. I was in Barneys in Georgetown last week, and bought this. http://www.neimanmarcus.com/store/catalog/prod.jhtml?itemId=prod27030122&parentId=cat6340744&masterId=cat9610736&index=6&cmCat=cat000000cat000141cat000149cat000226cat9610737cat6340744 They had the silvery color and the blue, but the blue is ugly.

    It has everything I need, plus I will be able to slide my new Panasonic laptop into it whenever it arrives.

    What it doesn’t show or mention is above the shown zipper compartment is also a magnetic snap, which holds magazines.

    The MAJOR downfall was color transference. I carried it on Saturday, and my jeans rubbed blue all over the back side.

    I just walked in the door and after a 21 hour trip was thrilled to take Woolite to it to try and clean it up. Never came off of the seams though.

    It isn’t bad now, and I know it will get dirty again, and I saw on Neiman’s web site they have it in a distressed brown leather, that I might have to invest in as well.

    Took the Blue Edith with me, and it doesn’t cut it on international travel.

    BUT, loved having it in Chicago and DC. The color wasn’t available, and the size was a novelty. Had three women offer to buy it off of me.

    Was glad to catch up on the bag snob, I missed a whole week of postings.
