Holiday Gift Guide - For Her - Maggie Bags
Ladies I told you that my Maggie Bags Cicly Tote was my favorite everyday purse and I never ever thought I would need another purse. I have received more complements on it than any other bag I have ever carried - honestly! When I decided I really needed something bigger for Fall, because lets face it we travel more in this lovely weather and carry more with us when we travel, I knew I wanted another Maggie Bags bag.
For me the obvious choice was the roomy Campus Tote. When I say roomy I mean it! I am able to put all of my everyday things that I had in my Cicly, as well my extras, like shades, a full sized camera, a whole bottle of PowerAde, etc! This tote seriously will carry anything I am strong enough to carry.
In addition to holding everything is has the same beautiful eye catching look as all of the Maggie Bags do. It’s the seat belts! These bags are made from recycled seat belts, how awesome is that? Not only are you looking fabulous but you get do it in an environmentally friendly way as well - which often just is not the case. Plus they offer them in so many colors and color combinations that you can find one to go with any look!
I picked a neutral color again because I love mine so much I want to be able to use them with everything! Mine is Shifting Sands which is beautiful golden tanish shades. The Campus Tote like all of their bags is available in many colors and combinations. The inside of the bag is the same lovely purple as my Cicly and also has a small zippered compartment which was the perfect size for things like my ID and credit cards that I want fast access to. It also has some open compartments on the other side, which worked perfectly for my things I need fast access to and don‘t want get lost in my purse, like my glucose monitor and tabs.
One of the best things for me about the Maggie Bags is that they are so sturdy being made from seat belts, you are not going to damage them without some serious effort and you can easily clean them in your washer on gentle, which is great for me because I have 4 dirty dogs that are always jumping on me and leaving paw prints on everything.
Sometimes the bottom of purses can be pretty nasty. Just think about all of the dirty floors and places we set them down. The bottom of the bag has little silver button feet that will keep it from resting directly on the ground too when you have to sit it down. I love that! And even if you do get some icky mess on the bottom, like I said they are very easy to clean.
