Confident Twosday: Greg Michaels

 As much as I try to be an organized person, that does not always happen for me. There are just too many things going on to have everything in its rightful place. I cannot tell you how much time I spend digging through my bag to find my phone, wallet, or the right shade of lipgloss (because we all have 4-5 shades in our bags, right?). All my purses in the past have approximately 3 pockets; a zippered one and two tiny ones whose contents fall out with the slightest tilt of my bag resulting in a jumbled mess and me not being able to find anything.. Enter one of the functional totes from Greg Michaels. There are so many pockets I don't know what to put in them! My purse is no longer a bottomless pit, but organized with everything easily accessible. And the tote is still chic and stylish. I wore this last week when I had somewhere to go immediately after work. I added a bottle of water and snack and everything fit in so well. This could be used as a work bag as well with a pocket for an ipad or other tablet and little pockets for pens or pencils. I love the soft quilted leather, too. It's such a well made, sturdy bag I know it will last me for years to come!

I received a purse and some jewelry from Greg Michaels in exchange for a review, but all opinions are my own!

  1. That sounds like such a practical bag! And I love the cute little scarf bow on it for some decoration! :) I like to organise my bag with lots of little pouches, so I know where everything is. That doesn't work so well for a baby bag though, ha! Thankfully I got one with plenty pockets! :)

    Thank you for the link up!

  13. I love bags with pockets! I especially always look for ones with easy access outside pockets for my phone, and inside pockets that can keep lip glosses in place. You are not alone with the battle for an organized purse!

  15. Love the swing to the skirt. Definitely a great outfit here. That bag, at first glance looked like a Chanel meets Michael Kors. Great hybrid. Love it.

  20. LOVE! The outfit is fab, as is that tote. And yay for Greg Michaels! They've been great to work with, and I've been very impressed by the quality of their bags. I chose one of their functional totes in blue -- which you can see here at https://librarianforlifestyle.wordpress.com/2015/02/03/navy-brown-tweed/ -- and thumbs up for organization AND style :)

  23. I adore this outfit! Will definitely need to re-create (I feel like I'm saying this to a lot of your outfits lately) ;-) And that purse is SO gorgeous! Very Kate Spade-esque...love the quilting and the fact that it has the four prongs at the bottom to keep it clean!

  25. Ooooh I love the bag! I am all about bags with pockets - I have actually returned a bag once because it didn't have enough pockets! it sounds like it might be a good diaper bag too!

  26. I vote for this look!

  27. It definitely would! Some of the pockets would be perfect for a bottle, wipes, diapers, and all the other things you need to have 'just in case!'

    Love the bag, I have one that is similar with quilted black leather, but it is a MK. It goes with so many of my outfits. My purse is just an unorganized mess, I really need to go through it sometime soon. I love this simple outfit and your black boots go nicely with that beautiful purse!

  30. I am VERY impressed so far. Their attention to detail is clear, especially when you look at all the pockets and the quality of the materials! I love your blue one!
