10 Chic Work Backpacks for Women

You might have noticed my not so minor obsession with bags. Work bags for women, also laptop and gadget bags. What can I say, I love bags hence most of my chic picks featured here are BAGS! Ha!

I’ve been thinking of buying myself a backpack but most of the usual stuff I see in the malls near my place are either so masculine or have a very funky for kids look. I want something that can be used for going to work and something a woman can carry around without looking like she’s about to go scaling Mt. Everest.

So off I go to my fave window surf shopping place…Amazon! to search for a nice work backpacks for women. Here’s a few lovely ones..
