Alesya Opelt was working in tech—first at a Silicon Valley startup and later as VP of a digital marketing company—when she realized there was a major gap in the market for professional laptop bags. She felt the need for a bag that she could use to “deliver a keynote, meet a client, or travel with my boss and feel prepared on all fronts.” And she wasn’t alone.

She launched Alesya Bags with this very problem in mind—looking to make bags that represent power in the business world, equalizing the opportunity for women to look professional yet function well at the same time. All bags are made in the US and have functional features such as: business card holder, pocket for file folders, laptop pocket, and a cross-body strap. The collection also includes super functional wallets and card holders. Meet the namesake for the Houser wallet here!

The Work Satchel is beautiful! I would carry it during my everyday commute on the DC Metro and on travel - specifically an upcoming trip to LA for a work conference.

I just got a new job so this satchel would be the perfect new work bag!

Chelsea Suydam

I would carry it to work every day here in DC, and it'd be perfect to use for interviews as a way to up my professional appearance.

Erin Blankenship

I would carry it to work every day and when I travel for work it would be a great carry on!

would love a new power bag for work. I carry my work black case, and know this would make a difference in how i look and feel with a special one for my commute in NYC and to customer meetings!

I telecommute or work in one of many offices on a large campus so I take my laptop and supplies with me every day; I would carry my new Work Satchel everywhere I go!

I would carry it everywhere. I currently use a North Face bag from grad school, which is functional but not exactly attractive or professional. This would be perfect for regular work days, traveling for business, and just about anything else.

I would carry this bag to work. I'm also a full-time grad student, so this bag would be perfect for carrying my work and school essentials.

I'm graduating from college this week and I begin my first post-grad job next Monday. I would carry this bag on my commute to work so that I can carry my laptop and planners! It would also be great for me to carry when I travel for work. I think a bag like think is great for the regular work week, traveling, and any other adventures my career could hold.

I would carry this bag to job interviews. I am currently looking for a new position, that is more in my field.

To the legal office I work for and the court house when I need to accompany the Attorney I work for. This satchel will definitely be promoted. :)

My current laptop bag is the backpack I've had for over a decade. This bad boy would go with me everywhere.

This bag would go with me on site visits and when I need to work remotely.

I love Aleysa Bags. I recently featured her in a Career Profile on my blog. I'd bring my bag to work every day. It would be perfect for going from a workout to work!

I love that is has quite a few pockets but it is still a very slim bag. In my new job I'm required to attend events and fairs to promote products and I think the bag could be the perfect companion for all the trips. My computer would fit right in and I would look stylish yet professional!

I would carry this bag with me to agency visits around town. It is perfect for holding my business cards (which I tend to lose in my purse) and my laptop which would make it overall very convenient as well as professional.

Alison Johnson

I would carry this bag to class as well as all my interviews. I am in my last year of law school and believe that having a bag that is sturdy and big enough for all my books, while still being fashionable and professional, would be amazing!

The Work Satchel is perfect- keeps your cards, folders, and personal items tidy (Plus stylish!) I would carry it to networking events so my business cards are on hand.

This wouldn't just be my bag...it'd be my life holder. I'd carry it to meetings. To my coworking space. To lunches at hipster juice bars. To photoshoots. And, after all the madness of a work day....to something fun and classy with friends, like a wine bar or glow in the dark bowling.

It'd be required at all these venues because, as an entrepreneur, I'm nothing without my iPhone, notebook (for non-stop notes & thoughts throughout the day), business cards, sticky notes, colored pens and the wide array of other things I need to run my business (like fingerless gloves for meetings that are in buildings that run AC like a skyscraper...high!)

This bag is ultra sleek and professional. I love my college Dakine backpack, don't get me wrong, but it's time to be an adult and rock a real Work Satchel! I simply hadn't seen a bag that had the functionality of my backpack until this one.

Aleysa bags truly are beautiful. I'd be honored to make like Ms. Bradshaw and Carrie one.

Let's be honest, I would carry it to work. I don't need to drag my laptop, paper files or other "equipment" when I go meet my friends or for lunch or when I go to the gym. I would carry it where it was meant to be carried. I would use it for what it was meant to be used - to make my work life easier, more organized and simple, to help me keep all my necessities close to hand without overwhelming me. I would not try to change it into something else - it's a dream work bag so that's where I would let it shine.

I'm still in college, so I would use this every single day to carry my laptop, notebooks, and other important things that I need for school. It would also be an amazing bag to take on internship and job interviews- everyone always underestimates the power of a stylish bag! The fact that it's absurdly functional is such a bonus on top of its gorgeous design, and as someone who carefully cultivates her professional and personal looks, this bag would be a great addition!

I walk to work so a large sturdy work bag is essential. This looks beautiful and functional!

I would love to win a Work Satchel. As a working law student, I would carry this bag with me from the office to class and everywhere in between. I always have my phone tablet, colored pens, and my planner on me wherever I am. At the moment, I'm using a black backpack, but I would love a sleek functional bag to help portray a more adult and professional image.

Ummm EVERYWHERE! This looks like a gorgeous bag with tons of function, which is my favorite kind of bag!

I would take this Work Bag to every meeting and interview. Nothing can inspire confidence quite like having everything organized and looking sharp. This bag is perfect for that.

Not only would this work satchel would be perfect to carry my books and other materials for my graduate classes and my CPA exam review material. This satchel would also be great to carry to work. As a graduate student, full time accountant, and CPA candidate, this bag would help to consolidate all of the items I need to accomplish my daily task with a stylish spin.

This is a cut satchel, I would carry it everywhere, use it as my everyday purse. Great as a winter accessory

It is so hard to find a work tote that's both stylish AND functional! I would use this to carry all my work documents, laptop and business cards so I look professional and still stylish at client meetings.

office - meeting - and happy hour afterwards :)

To the legal office I work for and the court house when I need to accompany the Attorney I work for. This satchel will definitely be promoted. :)

Will be great for the office, offsite meetings, events and happy hours.

I would carry this class-power bag to my consultations. In it would be all my tools like a tape measure, measuring cups and spoons and of course samples of healthy goodies. Being healthy, promoting the best in you and in others fits in with such beautiful craftmanship and design of this bag.

The Work Tote looks both stylish and versatile so I would take it from work at the museum, to class, to the gallery openings and museum events afterwards.

I'm a Product Manager at a large health insurance company based in New York City. This satchel has just the right amount of style and versatility to be utilized when presenting at sales meeting, business requirement gartherings and meeting with external vendors.

I would use this every day at work. I'm an elementary school teacher and I use my personal laptop in the classroom since we don't have desktops. The other day, the zipper on my ancient backpack broke and I had to cut my laptop and my books out! Time to trade up to a professional satchel.

Cristal Ramirez

Not only would I use this for work, but I would use it as my carry-on for an upcoming vacation.

As a young professional, i could very easily see this becoming my go-to every day bag. Plus with such versatile colors, who wouldn't want to use it every day?!

I would take this to work meetings with me, as well as all of my graduate school classes and seminars!

I would love to use this bag when traveling between our different offices.

This bag would be great for meetings with surgeons (I'm an engineer at an implant design company). It'd be an easy way to look super polished and still have all of my materials for my meetings!

Jessica Paugh
Jessica Paugh

I work in PR in New York City and am constantly jumping around to meetings in various neighborhoods. This bag is chic and would be the perfect carry-all around town!

As a Senior Business Analyst at an up an coming tech startup, there aren't many women around, so it's very important for me to look extremely professional and clean so that I am perceived at a higher level than I am, which is why this bag would be amazing to have! I was given a backpack to carry my laptop in...I think that says it all!

Sarah Harmon

I would carry it everywhere! That is the beauty of a bag like this. You can carry it to work, fit all the items you might need to take home with you in it, and still stop somewhere after work with this fabulous bag. Best of all - it does not sacrifice style for function and allows the carrier to have all they need without feeling stressed out due to a lack of organization. This makes this the perfect go-to bag for a professional woman!

Ryan Harrison

There's no place I wouldn't carry it, but especially to work at meetings on the hill.

To all those new job interviews I will be getting......

Cross-body strap approved! I would use this bag biking to work. Does lunch-box fit in?

Taking them to interviews with business leaders that I write about as a journalist.

I would carry this bag to conferences, meetings, lunches, networking events, everywhere- I love the business professional look of the bag!

I would carry my new Work Satchel to all the meetings for my business. I would prove that small business owners can kick butt and be stylish at the same time!

I love that this bag is so versatile and can fit my notepads, laptop, and all the things a busy woman needs these days, while still looking fashion forward and professional. I would carry my lovely work bag to events that I am covering, to budget meetings, to the class I teach on Saturdays, and to the mentoring event I go to every month. This bag communicates the message I want to send--I am a professional woman who is ready to get down to business!

Everywhere and anywhere!! This is the perfect size and style!

I would take my bag to work at my job as Director of Development for ChickTech, empowering more women to join technology!

This bag is perfect! I would use it for my legal externship at the United Nations and for law school interviews!

Besides all around Manhattan (where I currently live)?! I'd be carrying it to and from Columbia University everyday as well as my business meetings, for a start up I'm part of, in Brooklyn!

Right now I am finally finishing up my undergrad degree. I just got my internship placement for my last semester. It's at an amazing non-profit near my school. So I would take the bag to my internship to stay organized and stylish. After graduation; it will travel with me to interviews and grad school. Ultimately it will be a very handy accessory when I finally land my dream job.

I am currently working staffing in the Silicon Valley--this bag would be perfect for company meetings in San Jose and meeting with clients in their offices!

That moment when you are heading to a client meeting and realize you're carrying a purse, a laptop case and a bag of sketches and realize you actually need your hands to do stuff? It will be a bad dream I've awoken from.

The bag would be perfect for all my needs! It's stylish and business casual which is perfect for work, but can also transition into the perfect school bag when I have to head to class!

I'd carry my new bag every day on the train to get to work. It'd be great to have everything organized and easily accessible as I commute to and from the city for work and can work from different locations.

I would definitely carry the Work Satchel to and from my remote work locations - we have an open hotel-seating policy so my desk consists of whatever is on me that day. This bag would be perfect for staying organized!

I am changing offices- my last office was not all that it was supposed to be - so now onward toward a new adventure it would be awesome to have such a nice bag - I am not a spring chicken and anything that can put a little zip in my step will help me remember that I am really good at what I do and can meet the new challenges ahead...

As both a full time student and worker, a bag that can easily transition from powerpoint presentations in the classroom to the ones in the office is really important. This bag would give me an ego boost because I would know I'd look put together.

Profresh laptop bag with cross-body strap? It's what my bike commute has been missing! I've been sporting backpacks when biking to work, but definitely feels a bit juvenile when I'm at a conference. Only other laptop friendly options are totes, but obviously those are NOT bike friendly. Would love, love LOVE something that pulls in both form and function for a bike commuting #girlboss.

I would carry this for work to New York, Florida, Italy, Germany, and wherever else. My bags always fall apart and I desperately need a sturdy work bag.

I would carry that satchel EVERYWHERE! I love professional sturdy bags - it would be filled to the brim with all of my tools and necessities!

Would LOVE this to carry between our corporate offices in town, and put a little luxury in back to back meetings.

This would be perfect for work and travelling!

I work for LA Fashion Week and would love to carry this amazing bag to each of my meetings. My laptop bag is essentially my purse as well, as I never leave home without it - and I actually never carry a purse because of it! I would love to own this fashionable and functional bag. Thank you for your consideration!

I would take it to lunch and of course to school! It looks like it can hold anything, so I especially need it for my laptop! Stylish and convenient for any event!

This bag would be great to carry to interviews for medical school!

I am scheduled to travel a lot during busy season, and would love a cute alternative to my standard issue laptop bag!

To teach at church.

Oh and can't forget, business trips overseas!
A sturdy bag that fits all my working tools is just what I need.

I've been searching for a nice laptop bag for forever and haven't yet found one....until now. I'd use it to go to job interviews!

I would carry it everywhere! I am starting the process of building my own lifestyle company and it will require a lot of networking, business meetings, and I'm sure a few late nights at the coffee shop. Beautiful bag that you can carry day or night and still look professional and fashionable.

Based on the work satchel description, it's likely I'd carry it everywhere! Besides working a ton, I hate switching bags and I love how versatile this satchel is - it's sleek and professional, but can go to drinks and even wine country getaways. It would probably go to cafes, shopping trips, restaurants, business meetings, and of course, home with me every night :)

I'll be interning at C-SPAN in the spring and would love to carry this bag to work in DC!

This is fabulous and I would not only rock it at work, but when I travel for volunteer work with my professional association and conferences!

I'm start graduate school and an internship in DC in the spring, and I would use this bag there and everywhere in between!

I'd carry that nearly everywhere, if we're being honest. Once I find a work horse, I hold on!

I would literally carry mine everywhere! To work, shopping, doc appointments, the library; as I build my graphic & web design/development business I would bring it to meet clients but it would still hold the items I use to work on my kid-lit as ideas come to me! Instead of having cheap bags from Target that only kind of work - in that they hold my stuff - while carrying a separate tote bag I could just carry this! It would be a dream come true to have this bag right now.

Hi! Alesya has designed an eclectic, professional laptop bag that can be carried from meetings to interviews to graduate school. This addition would truly be the perfect compliment to my wardrobe. Fingers crossed! :)

I travel between cities for work quite a bit. This bag would be perfect for organizing work I had to do on the trains I take.

I would carry this bag back and forth to work, right now I use a less professional tote bag to do the same. Plus it would be perfect for plane trips!

I would carry this bag everywhere. To business meetings and conferences where I feel like I need my entire contents of my desk with me. On business trips, both domestic and international. And just daily, to and from work every morning and evening. This bag is gorgeous!

I would carry my work satchel to my job every day at Mount Sinai Hospital, to patient interviews with late stage cancer patients and to meetings with partners for my start-up set to launch in the spring.

I would not only carry my new satchel everywhere, I would LOVE to make it a reoccurring fixture on my blog and Instagram--as I'm a a fashion blogger :)

I would love to carry this to my job at a stuffy government building. Would be great to carry an beautiful, professional bag while still feeling fashionable!

I just got put on a proposal team at work so I would use it to tote my laptop from client site back to headquarters via the metro as I grow my consulting skills and professional development.

I'm expecting some travel this year so this would be an awesome bag to have for my laptop.

A perfect bag to help me land/find the perfect job. My true calling awaits...I'd like to show up in style.

I would carry this bag to and from the small business that I found it and run. I would also take it when I'm out and about mentoring other small business owners and networking in the community. Absolutely love the bag and love the company!

I am a new MBA grad and looking to take my next a steps as a nursing administrator. This bag would give me the opportunity to enter interviews and the executive suites with confidence and style.

I'd take this bag everywhere - from the office to the airport it's perfect for work on the go!

My new year's resolution is to keep my bag more organized. It is surprisingly tough to stay on top of things when you roll out of bed between 3:30 and 4 am most days and might not get back to it until the next midnight. Good intentions have so far failed but I think this bag is so thoughtfully designed that it might be just what I need to help me help myself. It would come with me to the hospital, to research meetings, to interview season and beyond!

I travel every week and am busy with four kids so this bag would go everywhere- airports, cities, important sales meetings, kids basketball games.

I would take my work satchel everywhere. Firstly, to my job to and from Starbucks. I've been working hard to build myself within the company and I feel the Alysea bag can help take my professional appearance to the next level! Secondly, traveling. To showcase you can be a business woman and still get outside your four walls for a little fun. Thirdly, around town. Representing a bag that I proud was created in Charleston: the beautiful city I reside!

I would take it everywhere with me. I'm a working mother of two, a marketer and a writer. I'm constantly poking for a bag to facilitate all my needs and know this is the one! Living in Austin, Texas I'd also show everyone my bag and promote it at Levo!

I would carry it everywhere, especially traveling for work in NYC and San Francisco.

My first Aleysa Bag has travelled with me across the campus I work at as well as across the nation for my speaking engagements. If I won a new Aleysa Bag I would take it to Paris and London (on my honeymoon) and through all the glass ceilings I plan on breaking in my industry (higher education). I love this new bag and love the confidence it gives women.

Everywhere I carry my current Alesya Bag. Work, dinner functions, through the airport on business trips. The bag is so functional and fashion forward and I always get complimented on the old style. Would love to carry the new satchel and spread my love for the brand!

I would carry my Work Satchel with me everywhere to keep me organized as I meet with partners and board members -- instead of pulling my files and laptop out of my big tote bag as I do now!

I would use it as a mini office, if that makes sense. I cover several clinics and it has the perfect spot for everything I need!

I would carry the bag to work and to travel as I refine who I am, what I want to be and how I want to contribute.

I would take this bag everywhere! My prior Alesya Bag went from home to office and on all business trips. The company I work for recently moved to a large professional office building and this bag would fit in perfectly!

I work in a male dominated field, casual work attire and travel with my backpack, normally wearing jeans. The Alesya Satchel would remind me to step it up, be professional and on point with this classy, sophisticated bag!

I would carry the work satchel on every business trip and into every meeting! I sell Women's healthcare imaging products to other Women Execs, so I am sure it will get a lot of attention.

Stacey Leonard

I never realize how many different thing I have until I travel (which is every week). Then trying to carry it all and look professional is a feat. The work satchel is an awesome solution. If I won though I would give it to my sister who works in hospitals and needs something that looks this gorgeous as her mobile office :)

Michelle Traverse

I work as a consultant to schools for kids with special needs. I travel from school to school, often needing to be prepared with a rain coat and umbrella for inclement weather. I need a bag that would be able to carry all the things I need for work in the classroom, a meeting in the conference room
or an impromptu game
of hopscotch on the playground. Love this bag!

This beautiful bag would be with me at the office, and be my traveling buddy for state and national conferences, retreats and speaking engagements!

This gorgeous bag would accompany to work every day and on trips, where I help my company power the business of the non-profit world!

Sam Sherman

My previous Alesya bag traveled the world with me. This one would too.

to work, when hanging out, to events.. many places i guess

This bag would accompany me to client meetings, as I help them with written details for life's biggest celebrations.

Nicholia Kisling Canfield

I am a teacher, so it would go to school with me as well as many coffee shops for grading. It would also travel with me anytime I went somewhere! <3

Megan Cassidy

The bag would come with me to Glendale, AZ for the college football national championship game, where I'll be working on postgame coverage for ESPN.

I'm a private chef & public speaker and would be traveling w/ the AMAZING Aleysa bag to NYC, FL, Italy, other parts of the US & Europe in 2016. A lemon zester, bottle of wine, makeup bag, media gear ... the packing possibilities are endless! Aleysa bag= my mobile media company.

Haley Y

I commute an hour plus every day to my job as a professor, so there is a lot I have to take with me! Grading, technology, lunch, and the list grows. I love my 1st-generation Alesya bag but since I use it nearly every day, it needs an update. I'd love to upgrade to the new bag!

The bag will be traveling throughout California in meetings, inspections and more.
It would be the conversation starter for all my meetings with co-workers, vendors and customers. I have been looking for a bag like this for a while now so I will flaunt it like no other.

Amanda Gilley

This bag will travel the world with me - professionally and personally. There is nothing better than having a bag that makes organization easy and can be used for both meetings and travel! A great bag makes one feel nothing is impossible for the day ahead of you!

I'll take this bag to the moon when i get this new job at NASA! Until then, i'll use it for my commute between Brighton and London 🇬🇧

Everywhere! I use my current Aleysa bag for back and forth to work and when traveling! Love it and it always gets compliments.

I'm really looking forward to replacing my big clunky totebag with this smart and sexy Alesya bag when I head to conferences for my work as owner of my own content-marketing company. One bag to rule them all!

I would take this bag everywhere - from serving on local non-profit boards to traveling to visit clients across the country. My laptop is essential for so many occasions, so you'll even see me with it if I'm going to dinner with friends - you never know when you'll need to spring into action! I've been spoiled by having the previous version of the Alesya bag, and it has set the standard for mobile office organization. Would be proud to own this new style!

I would absolutely LOVE a more feminine computer bag. I'm a preschool director in a startup non-profit educational program. It's hard to come to table with the "big boys" @ community planning a with a backpack but as a teacher you make due with what you were given.

I am the administrative assistant to a new company (just opened this year) and I basically use cloth and plastic bags for everything, including what's important. It would be real nice to actually have a business bag to be more professional

Re-Entering the workforce after a 9 year leave, (committed to raising a family), I was ever so fortunate to land a job with a most fantastic position with CareerBuilder. Carrying an Alesya bag to our Corporate Offices in Chicago, shows I have not missed a beat in the best SWAG for hauling work items, in an ever so fantastically, fashionable discreet, yet poignant way!

I'm going for a new position at my company, which happens to be a Fine Art College -- wish me luck!!

Terry Denney

I can work anywhere with my laptop so I would carry this bag everywhere I go!

I love the new Alesya Bags collection, all of the pieces are so well thought-out. I'd be thrilled to carry a Work Satchel to meetings, in fact I think it would encourage me to schedule more meetings away from my desk so I could show it off…

Naya S!
Naya S!

Yes! This is exactly the kind of bag that I've been looking for. It needs to hold my 15in laptop, business cards, and files to help me get through my new career as a full time consultant!

I would carry the bag to work and to see clients, on December 16 it will mark my first month working at EY, so the bag would get lots of use! Thank you so much! Dani

Amanda Barnes

I would use the bag everyday. I work in Community Management and this would allow me to go from the office to meetings with one bag! Currently I take 3 - my purse, laptop bag, and another bag for files and paperwork.

Such a beautiful, functional bag. I'd take it everywhere, from the US to Haiti.

I love the Alesya Bag collection- her bags are so modern chic! As an event planner and business consultant I would be using this Work Satchel daily. It's the perfect bag to help keep organized while running around NYC. I would only need to bring this 1 bag it's the perfect all in 1 go to bag. I always meeting with clients and business owners and I'm always looking for ways to keep me on my game. This bag would keep me looking stylish, chic, put together and polished! Love it!!!

I would look super sophisticated with this bag on my shoulder as I pick up my stepdaughter from dance class. No one would guess I was doing my own homework in the car as I recently returned to college. Plus all my coworkers will be green with envy as I saunter into work with my new bag! 😊

I would be sure to bring my bag with me to my classes in graduate school!

I believe accessories have the power to carry us. Having a sophisticated bag not only helps to make things more efficient, it tells the rest of the world who you are before you say a word. This bag would display my confidence and carry me to higher heights.

I'd take this amazing bag around the globe from a tiny little hobby farm in KS to a super remote island in the middle of the Indian Ocean called Diego. Fingers crossed!

This is such a classy bag! I would take it everywhere with me. It would probably become my most used bag. Thanks for the opportunity to win one of these gems!

I would take this bag everywhere with me! Since I like taking a lot of my tech gear with me, this would be my go-to bag.

Of course I'd carry this beauty everywhere. Who wouldn't. ;)

I would carry this bag every and any where! It's too gorgeous to stay home.

On planes, trains, and automobiles... I'd love to use this back for all of my business travel.

Laura Rose

I would carry it to the theatre as the Artistic Director of the only Shakespeare company in Charleston, SC. I would carry it on the plane to the UK as a PhD researcher at the Shakespeare Institute in Stratford-upon-Avon. I would carry it to the World Shakespeare Congress next summer, learning new ways to bring Shakespeare performance and education to our city.

Christina Barone

I work for a firm in Manhattan, but live in Lake Mary, FL. This bag would be carried on my many business trips to NY. Honestly, this bag would be carried everywhere.

I would gift it to Renee Pinter as she loves these and could really use one for work. She is raising our grandson as a single mom and I would like to thank her by giving her the one thing she wishes for all the time.

I'm a tech consultant and rarely feel that there's an alternative to a backpack. This bag is definitely that and would be great to keep conversations going about how everything about the industry should be more diverse and inclusive towards women, fashion included. I would take it with me as I travel, speak at conferences and encourage more women to stay in STEM careers.

I always joke that my laptop bag is my office. I have no official desk/office and I travel constantly to my clients around the US and around the world. I have gone through so many bags that just aren't right - either they are not functional or don't look professional. The new Alesya Work Satchel looks to be the perfect solution for the on-the-go business lifestyle!

Obsessed with this bag and what it stands for! As a corporate event planner...I am always on the road and this is the perfect bag to transition me from office to airplane and meetings to client dinner. So much better than the backpacks I see all day long. If I win...this bag would travel to Super Bowl, ESPY's and many events in between and likely be the talk of many of my colleagues. Bottom line.. I will ROCK this bag!

Kristin Meyers

I would use this bag for on-site client visits as well as when I go into the office. I to think of myself of as an example for those who I mentor & I extend that to my wardrobe as well. I'd love to make this bag the focal point of my wardrobe and inspire others to do the same!

Angela Miner

Everywhere I go! Love these bags...

I'd bring this bag everywhere - working, traveling, conferencing, coffee drinking! I adore it and wish it were within my budget.

Love this bag! I'd love to bring it to the office, and it would make a great carry-on too.

Amazing bag! I would wear it every day and I am sure it will bring me luck :)

this bag is the definition of perfection. id bring this everywhere with me. internship, school or work.

Hello! I'm new to Levo, but have found that resources such as this extremely helpful. I am currently a senior, wrapping up my last year of undergrad at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. This bag is chic enough to transition from the bookbag that I carry on a daily to work and class. This bag will aid in the crossover into the working scene as I embark on job interviews and graduate school. Thank you for this opportunity to have a chance to enter this contest!😊

I would carry my hip new laptop bag to school!

The Work Satchel would become my primary bag as I manage my day to day work and personal functions at various meeting locations and transition to travel throughout the year.

I would take the Work Satchel all around campus where I work, and beyond on my work travel. Alesya is amazing, and I love my first generation Alesya Bag!

I have been waiting more than a year for this bag- but my kids come first and I haven't splurged on the bag. I travel 1-2 weeks each month- before the end of 2015, this bag would go with me from Cleveland to Norfolk, onto Roanoke, then Charlotte, Ft Meyers and Ft Lauderdale!!!!

I would take the Work Satchel to my office, to class, and all around town for coffeeshop writing sessions! I've been switching back and forth between a large-yet-ugly bag that can carry all of my papers and a cute smaller bag that doesn't hold nearly as much. The Work Satchel would be perfect for organization and style!

This bag is perfect for work as well as running around town when I'm going to meetings. Not only is it professional, but it is gorgeous!!

Lauren Feuerborn

As a graduate student I feel like a bag lady sometimes hauling books and a laptop from class to work or networking events. This bag would help me look professional as I navigate living in the academic world and work force!

I would love this gorgeous satchel and would use it everyday for work.

The Alesya Work Satchel is pure perfection- an intricate blend of style, form and function. I am a busy mid-30's professional in the technology industry- shuttling time between airports, executive rooms and my office- all while trying to appear as chic, organized and collected as I possibly can. First impressions are key and I know the Work Satchel can help me move effortlessly throughout the hectic pace of my day, keep me on par from a style point of view and help me nail the big meetings with executives and customers!

This is the perfect satchel for work, events and travel!

I've been so excited about the new version of this bag ever since I heard it was coming. I would carry it everywhere since I travel a lot for work, including internationally. It's gorgeous!

This is the perfect satchel to carry from my full time job to my nightly graduate school classes. It's efficient and stylish.

I can't even begin to tell you what an upgrade this bag would be to the practical but ugly backpack I carry to work and on all my business travel. I also love that I can carry it out as a pseudo-purse if I am going somewhere straight from the office.

Jeanette Boykins

I would definitely wear it for work but it would also come in handy when traveling. Just the bag I've been looking for, so versatile!

I'm about to embark on a national tour of a musical, and I'll definitely be toting my laptop around with me! This stylish and practical bag would help ensure that all my tech stuff is safe and sound while I'm bussing all over the U.S. and Canada. I'll be developing my own side hustle projects on the road and this bag will help me keep it all organized and stylish on the go.

I'm traveling all the world over implementing Salesforce. It would be great to walk into these meetings with a brand new gorgeous bag over my arm, keeping me organized and making me look great!

My work satchel would go everywhere with me! I just accepted a co-op at my company, so I'll be full-time working for the next 8 months. I really need an awesome (read: quality) professional bag that will last that long! And one that I won't be ashamed to be seen with, either! I will take it to the grocery store, to Starbucks, to happy hour...an everyday work bag would be amazing.
