A Proper Bag for Your Other Baby


With one foot out the door and the other trying not to slip on Lightning McQueen, you’ve managed to fix your hair, do your makeup, put on a dress and toss on a pair of heels, only to realize that your attempt at looking stylish will be totally smashed to bits by your hideous computer bag! U-G-H!

Your bulky, manly, awkward, ugly and non-ergo-friendly bag isn’t helping your “I’m a hip mommy” image. (And neither is that spit-up stain on your shoulder.) Meet the Shine from Ice Red! This fabulous computer bag is so cool and glossy, you might just find excuses to carry your laptop around more often. It’s classy! It’s modern! It’s shiny! What more could a mommy want?


It comes in three shades – Pink, Black and Silver – and they’re all perfection.  Aside from the glossy, vinyl exterior, the interior boasts an organizer for pens, change, phone, iPod and more.  The straps can be snapped together too. The large compartment fits up to a 17″ laptop. Find it at Ice Red for $70.
