The Palermo Bagg Is The Perfect Bag For College


My daughter graduated 2 years early and sent my life into a spiral. Suddenly I was looking at colleges, worrying about tuition, trying to come up with application fees, and generally going crazy. When she mentioned decorating her dorm room I may or may not have had a major meltdown that sent me into a fit of tears for the next 6 hours. Maybe.

When she was aware that I was completely getting ready to end up in the loony bin she started talking about what bag she would carry with her while going to class. Handbags? Handbags were my thing. I am a handbag addict and not afraid to show it.



There were several things she was looking for in a bag.

  1. Durability – Since she would be carrying her books, laptop, cell phone, and other necessities around campus she wanted it to be durable. Having it break down on her after a few months wasn’t an option.
  2. Roomy – She wanted to make sure that everything she wanted to carry fit with some space left over for extras.
  3. Crossbody – It needed to be a crossbody with a comfort strap. She hates carrying a bag on her shoulders and when she does find a crossbody she doesn’t want it cutting into her when she carries it.
  4. Outside Pockets- She wanted pockets for her water bottle, makeup, and any little extras she needed to carry on the outside.
  5. Stylish- After all she is a girl. She wanted something that looked good as well as functional.

We found all that and much more in the Palermo Bagg from Baggallini. This bag rocks and is perfect for college!
