Orangify your laptop bag | How About Orange

Orangify your laptop bag

A friend is hunting for a new laptop bag and asked if I knew where to find something cool. Of course the suggestions I sent back included a healthy dose of orange. (My own laptop bag is a very functional black. I just want to live vicariously through her.) So for the daring among you, I present a few orange choices: the Half Circle case from Snap, where I'm in love with everything; the Jane Marvel laptop sleeve; the Retrostriper bag; and the Melissa Beth bag. If you're too bashful to carry a bright orange laptop case, no worries. These shops have many other stylish color and design options for you.

Ah, love! Mine is bright orange. :) It's this one. There's nothing better than a big dose of color in a traditionally blah space.

Jess said...

Jennifer, I commend you on your oranginess! Well done!

I love all of these. I need a laptop so I have an excuse to buy any of these bags.

You s'pose I could sneak some orange somewhere onto the one I'm making for N&S? Y'think N would care? ;)

Jess said...

Is it navy, did you say? I think it would be awesome to do some orange topstitching and orange zippers or something. And maybe orange lining. See this gray one with the red details right here? I think it's so cool.

Grandma G said...

Brown, actually... but a little orange contrast here and there would work!

Jess said...

I like brown and orange. Excellent.

I got a really great orange incase laptop bag a couple years ago but can't seem to find a picture of it online anywhere. This is just the sleeve, but you get the idea:

I love incase products and suggest checking them out.

Those look cool. Nothing wrong with a splash of color.

I got a brown one with lovely orange details. It's also long instead of wide which I wanted. http://www.amazon.com/STM-DP-1380-1-Shoulder-Screens-Chocolate-Orange/dp/B0026L7FQS/ref=dp_cp_ob_e_title_0

Jess said...

m, very cool. I like. Mary Catherine, that's fun--thanks for the link! And Kris, I'm off to check out your blog.

For anyone in the UK, I recommend Paperchase! Their laptops cases come in awesome patterns and are quite cheap too :)

I think you can get them off Amazon and they might even post to the US

Those are awesome for 15" laptops, but what about 17"? The big guys need love too!

Christy said...

I have the oxio one. It squeaks after a while - all my friends who have it noticed it, too.

Jess said...

Ah. Good to know. Not ideal.

Hi! I came across your website while searching for an orange laptop bag. I ended up buying this Tenba Mini in "burnt orange". Thought I'd share. ~Heather http://www.tenba.com/products/Messenger-Mini-Photo-Laptop-Bag.aspx
