the bag that changed my life.

You guys…

Tory Burch York Buckle Tote The Glitter Life
this is the bag that changed my life.

I have struggled with a two-bag system for years. I have always carried a purse (for all the usual purse things) as well as a “work bag” for my laptop, notebook, folders, phone charger, etc. It wasn’t that I hadn’t tried to find a bag that could do it all…I just couldn’t find one. Sure, I’ve had gigantic purses that fit my laptop, but they were always unstructured bags without compartments. In other words, giant BLACK HOLES in which to lose all my stuff. I could frequently be found dumping the contents of my bag out onto the floor, searching for something random like a mini-stapler. Grrrrrrrr.

And there are certainly plenty of business-y satchels out there…but I have never found one that I didn’t think screamed LAPTOP BAG. I wanted something big enough for my laptop that still looked like a handbag. I wanted it all.

And then I FOUND IT.

so happyyyyyyyyy

The Tory Burch York Buckle Tote. Full disclosure, Jennifer also has this tote. She had it first! I am totally copying her. I was having the hardest time finding a bag that checked all my boxes, and she suggested this one. What took me so long to buy it? No idea. But I’m so glad I did.

everything i need to work in a hotel lobby – and I’m currently doing just that – is in this bag.

This York Buckle Tote comes in red, black and navy (shown).

inside zipper pocket holds my laptop, full-size notebook and various folders

The best part about this bag is the pockets. There are FOUR interior slip pockets (for phone, keys, sunglasses and pens. I have a lot of pens.). In addition, there’s a side zipper compartment where I keep random stuff (hairbrush, etc). The crowning achivement is the interior zipper pocket that divides the bag into two sections. This interior zipper pocket is large enough to hold my laptop, my favorite Sugar Paper Notebook (I use one every two-three months instead of a planner) and various folders. People make fun of my folders, but when you work on-the-go a lot (and I do!), you need access to all your papers like school forms, invoices, etc. My Tory Burch make-up bag (Jennifer gave me this little baby years ago and it has served me so well – what we can say, we’re brand-loyal!) and HOBO wallet (this one is super similar) fit neatly on one side, and I keep my phone and laptop chargers on the other.

sunglasses, eyeglasses, wallet, make-up bag, keys

If I seem weirdly excited about this bag, it’s because I’ve spent years digging through two bags in frustration, struggling to find my stuff. I highly recommend this tote for anyone who frequently works out of town (me), in coffee shops (me, again) or in any random place (me, me, me). Happy Thursday!

outfit inspo: golf tournament attire

Happy Friday! Today we’ve got golf tournament attire on the brain. Next week is Masters Week, and we’re always excited for this storied tournament in our shared home town of Augusta. Of course, the big question is always…WHAT ARE WE WEARING? It’s important to be respectful of golf tradition, but – of course – we also want to be comfy and cute. We love a skort or skinnies paired with a simple polo or shell. And unless you plan to sit in the clubhouse all day (come on, don’t do that!), comfy kicks, oversized sunnies and a cross-body bag are key. Here are our two favorite looks.

sneak peek: spring preview

We recently spent a cold, winter day immersed in spring styles at Atlanta Market. Read on for our behind-the-scenes look at S/S 15!

Jenny + Emily + Laura
mamie ruth never disappoints. designer Emily Bargeron (pictured) always stays true to her boho roots and creates unique pieces that our Dish customers love. we can’t wait for Emily to visit us on March 11 for a Mamie trunk show!
Twi Piece Set
two-piece sets are going to be EVERYWHERE this spring. we picked up a few for Social.
HOBO Spring Bags
at HOBO, we stocked up on our favorite styles and picked up a few newbies we think are destined to be classics. we especially loved the ivory snake pattern and ordered it in a few styles (okay, every style).
BCBGeneration Spring
we chose pretty poppy as the accent color in our first spring BCBGeneration delivery.
Mamie Ruth Leather Bag
this genius Mamie Ruth recycled leather bag (made from leather fragments) is both green AND inexpensive. plus, each one is totally unique. we ordered a bunch for Dish.
Photo Jan 31, 3 40 39 PM
can you keep a secret? we scooped this new line for Dish. can’t wait to watch it fly!
Toms sunglasses
we’re beyond excited to carry TOMS sunglasses at Sole this spring. great company, great cause, great design, great fit. we both ordered pairs for ourselves!
MacBeth Spring
we both freaked for MacBeth, an adorable preppy line we’re adding at Sole.
Bell Bottom Prints
prints + patterns + paisleys for Dish.
BCBGeneration Summer
we fell in love with the pom-pom tops and paper-bag-waist shorts in the BCBGeneration summer delivery.

friday five: bag ladies.

FRIDAY! YOU’RE HERE!

L and I share a serious love of handbags. We prefer purchasing big-ticket items together for moral support–we had to have a few drinks to numb the wallet pain after our Gucci trip in 2008.

Are you in the market for a new bag? Our top handbag picks are on today’s Friday Five. The best part? None of these purchases requires a post-credit-card-swipe cocktail.

1. Melie Bianco Scarlett Bag:  The classic shape of the Melie Bianco Scarlett bag from www.shopsocialdish.com works for day or night, and the fun neon trim pops.

4. Zara Studded Tote Shopper: It’s no secret that we like a *large* cognac colored bag for everyday use. Goes with everything. Really feeling this right now:
