Wednesday, September 13, 2006's new DEAR BAG GURU Column

Dear Bagistas,

For those who sent warm notes of 'congrats' yesterday, thank you! We also got e-mails from readers asking us for handbag advice and that got us thinking....

What about a Dear Abby column for bags? Certainly the relationship a gal has with her handbag is equally as important as her relationship(s) with the opposite sex. Often, the bag will outlast the man!

So, every Monday we'll be answering all your e-mails. Looking for an ideal clutch for a black tie event? Can't decide if python is a practical choice? Need a hobo that will hold your entire life and not break your back? Don't know how to clean your stained leather bag?

E-mail us at Send us your pictures, thoughts and concerns and we'll help solve your bagista predicaments.

Here are a few comments and questions we received yesterday:
  • Michele wrote: Can you advise me on how and if I can possibly find a stylish laptop bag? I'd really like something that looks like any other stylish fashionable tote bag, but is sturdy and roomy enough to carry my laptop, mouse, power supply, paper pad, wallet and cell phone - IS THIS POSSIBLE?

  • Patricia wrote: Saw your address in the Wall Street Journal today. At last!! A blogsite where I can send my frustrated comment/plea/complaint regarding handbag weight: Can't consumer’s band together to demand that weight specifications be listed on each and every handbag price tag? Surely other women care about wrenched shoulders, back pain, chiropractic and podiatric injuries from lugging a high-fashion leather satchel with fringe and metal rivets all around town!
Responses will be posted on Monday in the first installment of Dear Bag Guru!

Have a bag-a-licious day!
