My Favorite Accessory or, I Love Tim Bihn

This week’s blog prompt over at Student Affairs Women Talk Tech was:

What are your favorite items of clothing or accessories?

Kathryn wrote about her glasses, while Jess chimed in in the comments to talk about her collection of purses. Like Jess, my (current) favorite accessory is also a bag, specifically my Tom Bihn large cafe bag:

I love this bag. I love this bag so much that I have used it nonstop since I bought it last fall and haven’t felt the urge to switch out or find a new one. As my husband will tell you, this is highly unusual as I have a closet full of abandoned bags. Some will too big, some too small, some awkward to carry, some too heavy, etc. But the Tom Bihn bag is just about perfect: the right number of pockets, a great strap, big enough to fit both MacBook Air and iPad, but not so big that things drown in it if I’m not carrying a computer, and a great color (I went with purple/wasabi, but they have a bunch of other color combinations). Add an organizer pouch for carrying around dongles, charging cards, etc. and you have a great bag for both everyday use and travel. (And no Tom Bihn did not pay me, although it they want to send me bags to review, I’d be happy to do so :) )

    Hmmm…well-timed. I’m in search of a new bag with my much lighter computer, and this looks like it might be a good fit. I’ll have to check it out the next time I see you (how have I not noticed it before now? Welcome to the totally self-absorbed world of Kristen).

    I’ve got a medium cafe bag. Fantastic, aren’t they?

      Truly. I’ve never loved a bag as much as this one.
