I never thought I'd be brand-obsessed. However, I have fallen in love with Dickies bags. After stumbling across the perfect purse (color: chive) back in December, I have now found the perfect backpack (color: olive.) (It was originally priced $32 instead of the higher web price, AND I had a $4 off coupon!)
Strangely enough, I have been looking for a new backpack for quite a while now -- the zipper broke on my old one, and I had been searching for something a little less "campus-y," and a little more hip.
Dickies to the rescue! I love that their bags are hip, industrial-strength, and reasonably priced. What's not to love???
