Baggallini Baggs Are The Ultimate in Organization


Baggallini Dublin Crossbody Bagg

I lost weight — and I am still eating ice cream.  All l I did was buy a Baggallini Bagg from Irv’s Luggage.  My purse usually feels like an elephant around my neck.   I gave my old, heavy handbag away for the stylish, lightweight Baggallini Dublin Bagg.  The nylon, crinkle material is lightweight and easy to clean.  I love that I can wear the bag two different ways — depending on my mood and destination.  I can use the shoulder strap or wear the bag cross body. People are always stopping me on the street and complimenting me on my handbag.  It not only looks great, but it helps keep me organized.  The inside is roomy and there are slip pockets for small things.  The zippered pockets in the front and back help my organization even more. The handbag comes with a matching wallet with zipper enclosure.  This is a great travel accessory and bonus.


Baggallini Touring Tote Bagg

I am not worried if I get caught in a light rain shower.  The bag’s water-resistant nylon will keep my things dry.  I wish I could stay that dry.

The Baggallini collection also features a touring tote bag in nylon. This bag can also be worn over the shoulder or cross body. My favorite feature about this bag is the zippered cell phone pocket.  Now I won’t miss a phone call because I can’t seem to find my phone, which is usually on the bottom of my bag with my junk crammed on top.

Baggallini handbags and travel bags are about organization.  Each bag features pockets and zippers to keep everything neatly and safely in place.  Baggallini’s motto is order and beauty.  You should not have to sacrifice style for functionality.


Baggallini Sydney Bagg

For the ultimate in organization, check out the Baggallini Sydney Bagg. It contains a key fob, credit card slots, lipstick and pen holders and an easily visible ID window.  The bags zippers wide open so that you can get a bird’s eye view of the inside. Hard to believe, but this bag weighs a little more than .5 pound. It will not weight you down as you travel around.

I have ruined too many handbags because they get dirty and I can’t clean them. Now that I have a Baggallini with its incredible nylon material, my bag will stay looking brand new.  It is so easy to wipe it clean.
