Buy it: Tignanello polished pocket convertible satchel

A coworker and I were having a conversation the other day about a certain famous American designer's handbags and how we want to like them, but there's something not quite right about them. I think it comes down to the finishes; for one, I don't like a designer's name plastered all over my bag, nor do I like a lot of flair—you know, tassels, chains, studs. The more quietly luxurious the design, the better. Which is why I like this almost anonymous Tignanello polished pocket convertible satchel. It's a brand you can find in nearly every department store and yet it's so subtle and unassuming, like it's hiding in plain sight. I really like its minimalist look, with understated rounded studs and tasteful finishes. I can attest that it's lightweight (which is key when you carry around as much crap as I do) and features my favorite design, with both a shoulder strap and handles. Tignanello bags are also incredibly well organized, with lots of pockets, which, again, is important. And the price, $159, is incredibly wallet-friendly, considering it's about a tenth of what a similar top-of-the-line designer bag would cost. I challenge you to carry it and smile to yourself as your friends knock themselves out trying to guess what designer made it. It'll be our little secret.
