Going Pro

In 2017 I picked up a structured brown bag on impulse and it changed my life. Every single time that I carry it I get a very specific type of compliment: “I love your bag! It looks so professional!” Two years later and it’s still in my regular rotation. What can I say? I’m a sucker for purse praise.

At first the comments seemed odd – did I not look professional before the addition of this somehow magical accessory? – and then I realized the power that I now held. Getting ready for a lunch meeting just became one step easier. It turns out, all that it takes to trick people into believing you’re a total pro at first sight is to invest in a top-notch brown bag.
