I had the rare pleasure of seeing a bag in person from one of my favorite designers! Onna Ehrlich donated a navy Sylvia Messenger Bag to this year’s Power of the Purse. It’s beautiful yet simple, and the quality and construction is impeccable. My favorite part is the fringe on the flap of the bag! The Sylvia is a thoughtfully designed messenger bag that is perfect for carrying documents or a 15″ laptop. A leather flap secured by magnetic latches conceals a zipper opening to the Sylvia’s main document pouch, which is the perfect size for a manilla folder. There is also a small pouch for a keys and wallet, and a convenient cell phone holder. It’s definitely a more stylish alternative to carrying a briefcase. It’s also available in black, brown, gray and red. Price: $650.00 at OnnaEhrlich.com.
