I bought this bag yesterday.. I love it! I'm going to be starting a part time Strategic Media/Brand planning class soon through the Institute of Communications Agencies.. I needed something to carry all of my books ;)When I was in Aldo, I checked on these oxfords but they weren't on sale.. yet. I think they are soo awesome. I did almost 'splurge' but held strong. Can attribute the strength to the fact I'm obsessed with upgrading my BB Pearl to the Tour so a girl's gotta prioritize, and this one is a tech nerd.. I've had 5 differ phones in the last 3 years..
