The Ultimate Travel Purse

Paper Boy Roller Bag

Paper Boy Roller Bag (16″ L x 9 1/2 W x 17″ H Weight: Less than 3 lbs) – looks like a just purse in the front…

I recently attended the LA Women’s Expo and discovered the ultimate travel purse for the chic “must have everything” fashionista – the Paper Boy roller bag.  At first glance it looks like a large handbag to accommodate all including the kitchen sink., but it also comes with wheels and a handle to stroll around with ease for those heavy moments.

But there are wheels and a handle to pull it in the back!

Sold by Saatchi, this bag was the first thing that caught my eye when I walked into their space at the expo.  The newspaper style is timeless and the European articles give it a travel flair to use anywhere.  I also appreciate the fact that this isn’t just a black an white bag -colorful Picasso art is also featured on the front.  Another great thing about this bag is that you can use it as your purse and still have a small roller suitcase aboard the plane – if you are an efficient packer, you should be able to carry all essentials on the plane with you!

Inside the bag is very spacious!  Compartment features a padded laptop pocket and accessory zip pouch.  Also there are 2 side pockets.  Expandable side panels with adjustable width snap straps. I’m excited to use this on my next trip as I know nobody else will have or know my secret weapon!

The Paper Boy roller bag retails for $149.99 and can be purchased by emailing giselle@shopsaatchi.com
