Personal Shopper: Kim's Computer Catch All

Kim writes: Hi Outblush! I've seen you do a few laptop bag segments before, and I have yet another request. One of the in-season colors seems to be a fabulous teal, and I'm in love. My new winter coat is red, and it's a bit clashy with my current olive green laptop bag, which is OK because I'm bored with it already. I'm an on-call Systems Engineer, so my laptop tends to go everywhere with me. I filtered ebag's laptop stock by blue, and it's all this putrid baby blue. Perhaps you could help me source something to tote my 15" Macbook Pro and all of its accoutrements, inspired by this Kate Spade bag. What do you think? Teal and red seems unexpected and bold. But you're the experts! I'm also open to suggestions for other colors, as long as they're not boring black or brown. Have fun!

COLOR BONANZA!!! And I love it. It's so refreshing to have someone ask for something other than a dress that matches these shoes or some more f***ing boots. So instead of my usual six options, I celebrated with 9. Hope you find something that suits your fancy. -Magzilla

1. Fossil Maddox Flap in Spruce ($178)
2. Orla Kiely Oval Stem Print Classic Shoulder in Jade ($185)
3. Tumi Voyageur T-Pass in Sea ($175) Act super fast if you want this one.
4. Fiorelli Castello Large Flapover Shoulder Bag in Olive ($119) Yes it's Olive but it's so damn close to your inspiration bag I had to add it.
5. Melie Bianco Alyssa Slouchy Shoulder Bag in Peacock ($113)
6. Madewell Caravan Bag in Drill Khaki ($68)
7. Kailo Chic Women's Pleated Laptop Tote in Teal Leaf ($56)
8. Cesca Cross Body Bag in Cognac ($32)
9. Arton Crafts Brook Leather Handbag in Teal ($145)

*squee* You guys are awesome. Thanks! Those are all fabulous. Of course they ones I especially love look iffy on fitting my 15" Macbook, but I think the Etsy one is my best bet.

That was my pick too!

I think it is really lame how you keep complaining about people who want to buy some more "f***ing boots." This is not the first comment I've seen along those lines. You should not bitch about your audience TO your audience. Save it for your coworkers or your friends or whatever, don't publish it. It is just coming across as disrespectful. I don't even want any boots. I just think you are being totally lame.

Well, according to every single Personal Shopper request that comes in for boots, there are a fair number of people who still want boots. Even if that doesn't include you. So we did the Booted Up feature this year to cover a multitude of boots all at once. That way we have time to do more specific Personal Shoppers, such as Kim's. If you, dear Blah, ever need a Personal Shopper fulfilled I would be happy to do it. As long as it isn't for boots.

One Ring to Rule Them All

Hi blah!

This is One Ring To Rule Them All, Outblush's boss. Sorry you think we're lame...let me just clarify, ok? We're not against our readers wanting boots. (We do too.) And we're not against them asking us for help. (we would too!!) But the thing is, we get so many requests that are EXACTLY the same that if we created Personal Shoppers for them all, we might as well change our name to Outboot. And all the answering posts would all sound the same (boring! And boring = lame).

So, since we can't answer them all, we're taking a tongue in cheek approach...which you'd know our audience can handle if you ever interacted with them (I have.)
