Lmao girl same!!! I bought a coffee table and a pair of heels immediately after putting down my deposit. I have no logical reason why


I've been buying wigs, makeup, and face cleansing products.


I also bought a Plum Paper planner for LS... but in my defense, I googled "best planners for LS" and it came up MULTIPLE times!!!!!!! lol.

Okay, this tote looks absolutely amazing.

Is it absolute nonsense to have two planners? Bought mine in January but now I'm thinking it might be better to have two...just in case. I have the Emily Ley but I was thinking about getting an Erin Condren to make it easier to tote around. Which layout did you get?

I think I will actually, haha. The only question is if it would be better to get the 13 inch one (since that's the size of my laptop anyway and I don't want to lug around a bigger bag if it's not necessary) or the 15 inch one (so that I can fit more books/random stuff in there). Any thoughts?

E: Just read some reviews and apparently even though the classic size is designed for a 13 inch laptop, it can get really crowded with one in there. Gonna go for the 15"!

I got the 15 initially but it was so big. I might buy it later on down the road but I wanted one I could also use for everyday so I went with the 13. It's been fine for me if I take the cup holder out, I usually carry some notebooks and a planner as well as all my other purse things. It does get a little crowded so for law school it might be better to get the bigger one. But fair warning, it is huge!!

Got a Dagne Dover back in senior year of undergrad, fully intend on using it for law school. I love it.

I have the 15" (bought mine before they released the newer models) and definitely recommend. It is big but IMO, not overly so (and I'm 5' 2" so sometimes bags look huge on me). The one downside is it's a heavier bag and gets heavy quickly when you put a lot of stuff in it. I don't mind though since I'd rather have a stylish tote than a lightweight backpack, it has a lot of space/organization, and mine has held up great so far.

I am desperately in search of a good planner now. Thinking of getting the Erin Condren lifeplanner...

Thanks for the input! I'm also 6'2" so it might be less of a problem for me, haha. And I've never actually used the Erin Condren, but I had the Emily Ley daily planner last year and loved it. I decided to try the Passion Planner after some good reviews of it and desperately miss my old one. It's a little larger but with my new tote, it shouldn't be a problem ;)

Ahaha, you will be fine then! Enjoy your DD tote :)

I got a Passion Planner as a gift but I haven't used it... I currently do a modified bullet journal in a Leuchtturm but I want something with premade templates for school. I'll check out the Emily Ley one! The Plum Paper planner that Bri mentioned actually looks really tempting too.

You guys I just want to buy alllll the things now!!

I want a cute tote so badly, but I tend to carry a ton of stuff with me at all times, and I don't want my shoulders and neck to be tense all the time from carrying something on one side of my body (according to my masseuse, I have upper-body-tension-issues :P).

I wish back packs could be cute and professional-looking.

I did custom with the cover that's like shades of blue and green and added a quote to it. Has 16 months in it, starting in May and ending in August of next year. It's REALLY nice. Both sturdy and cute (as it should be since it is NOT cheap lol).

Has anyone used the LV GM Neverfull? It seems to last quite a bit, or, at least, LV claims so.

If you want to get the Longchamp bag, which I have used for the last two years of undergrad, you will most definitely wear out the handles with your binders & LS books. You will end up ruining the bag within 2-3 years, and the thin straps really dig into your shoulders. But they are cute, and I don't regret getting them in general.

But, first, I need to get off one of that 10 waitlists in the T13.

I have a Neverfull. I don't doubt its durability, and it has a TON of room, but I don't like putting a lot of heavy stuff in it because the straps are thin and dig into my shoulder really badly when the bag is heavy. Would not recommend for carrying a load of books. I mostly use it as a large handbag or for clothes on overnight trips.

Thanks for the input! I have heard that the shoulder straps would be very uncomfortable, even though the bag can hold a lot of stuff. I like the look of the bag though, but I probably don't need another weekender bag. I probably should just get a regular backpack for the health of my shoulders and spine.
