Geek Chic

Since I bought my new MacBook Pro, I've been scouring the internet looking for something fashionable to carry it in.  I've pretty much decided that I want a sleeve type case as well as a larger tote to hold it in. Temporarily,  I'm using my old Goldenbleu Jordan satchel.
It works, but it's really heavy with my laptop in it.  Also, the straps aren't as long as I'd like making it a bit awkward to carry.  I'm typically a Louis Vuitton girl for everyday bags, but I carry the Speedy style which won't accommodate my laptop. Since I own zero Monogram pieces, I thought this might be a good time to add the classic LV design to my collection. I'm thinking about getting this for my tote:

or maybe a Goyard tote in a fun color...

I'm kind of leaning towards the LV, because it's less expensive, and would look better with a pop of color peeking out. If I go with the Goyard, I'd want a more neutral sleeve. Here are some of the colorful sleeves that I'm considering...

And here's a couple of wild cards...

Which one should I get? Any other suggestions?

Have a great weekend! :) 


  1. Oooh, I love the hot pink Abbi sleeve! It's so bright and fun. How exciting about your new Macbook, Bren! Hope you have a nice weekend.


  2. I have the hot pink Incase one even though I have a Dell... But I love that cherry blossom one!

  3. Love the Neverfull and the cherry blossom sleeve!

  4. Oh, so many amazing choices. I just love the blossom sleeve, but you can't go wrong with any of these.

    Good luck!

  5. Oh, how fab! I wish I had a new laptop right now. You're a lucky girl. ;)

    I adore the LV tote. Very classy and simple. As for the sleeves, I really love the cherry blossom one. Soooo pretty!

  6. I carry my laptop everywhere so I use the men's OGIO Street City Corp Messenger because as you mentioned, the weight. It looks great,has plenty of pockets (for phone, charger, etc.), and I'm able to distribute the weight more evenly saving my back. I know Louie Vuitton carries a few for women, as well as, other designers like Gucci, Prada, and DVF. DVF has the Runway Collection Fashion Tote for under $50 you might like. These are just suggestions for helping with the weight issue while still sporting your geek chic. : )Oh! and I really like the one's you picked out too.

  7. Nice!
    I love the leopard one, plus it's small, compact - does it have a strap though? If not, I guess it doesn't EXACLY solve the problem... but the price is right.

  9. perfect.

  10. First off, thanks for the blog award. That's really sweet. Now I have to figure out how to design mine. :P

    I like the red and white flower and cherry blossom case. I'm saving up to get a MacBook and your post kinda inspired me to get one. Although I might have to also give credit to my friend, who is a total Apple Geek, since he's been telling I should get one.

  11. Ooooh I'm thinking hot pink, I'm thinking the Abbi one!! Let us know what you decide!

  12. ohh i love the hot pink of this bottom flashy gold one is fab!

  13. Love that LV Never full bag, just seems like the whole world owns one now!
