The Bag You Need to Have: TARA&CO's Convertible Tracy Bag.

The Bag You Need to Have: TARA&CO's Convertible Tracy Bag.

The TARA&CO. Tracy bag is a serious game changer. This super stylish, convertible 3-way wear tote and removable, zip-off clutch easily bring everyday form and function to women on-the-go. It's currently available only through Indie Gogo and is not to be missed!

I had the chance to try this amazing bag while on vacation in the Dominican Republic this past week and fell in love TARA&Co's inaugural product. I zipped it up the morning of my flight and couldn't help but wonder how in the world a product like this hadn't already been created. Seriously, it's that amazing.

This 2-in-1 leather bag feels sleek and sophisticated, while offering just the right amount of functionality. The Tracy fits up to a 13" laptop and has lots of other compartments for your phone or other devices, a water bottle, an umbrella, and more. This reimagined product is made for real women. It can be worn in multiple ways - as a shoulder bag, cross-body or a backpack, meaning that it can go everywhere with you from the office to happy hour. The bag can also be personalized with two other clutch colors - a gorgeous teal and a bold red. I'm already eying both, shhh!

With the production of this new TARA&CO bag, you can say buh-bye to choosing between practicality and style. So often, I see professional women slogging through the streets of New York carrying two or more bags - there's often a laptop bag, a lunch bag, a cuter bag for going out to happy hour, and even a gym bag (I'm guilty of all of these, by the way, and I think the correct phrase for this is, "doing the most.") The Tracy is the answer you've been looking for and is definitely a bag that you'll be turning to again and again. Trust me, you'll never look back after you've tried this new essential.

Head over to TARA&Co's Indie Gogo page today and snatch up this bag for $295!
