Oh how we laughed. Or they laughed. At me. As my work colleagues asked this question in the office yesterday. It’s an ongoing joke that I take Big Red with me EVERYWHERE.
So the answer was simple. YES. Although not always intentionally. You know, when you agree to go for a drink say after work not realising that it is in fact a date… Big Red the gooseberry. Awkward.
I bloody love my backpack. My backpack goes everywhere with me. Meetings, black tie dinners, launch parties, networking events. The main reason is because as a woman I inherently need to carry as much around with me as possible “Give a woman a bag and she will fill it”, but also because I LOVE MY BACKPACK.
Anyone who wants to win my affections has to accept the backpack is here to stay.
Don’t be ashamed, wear your backpack with pride and if you happen to end up on an unexpected after work date avec double shoulder hold all, maybe opt for one of these beauties.
