I have news for you, no need to bring your lunch in a brown paper bag and no need to spend a fortune on cafeteria food . One of my number one rules; after destroying the interior of more than a few handbags and after investing in a few Marc By Marc Jacobs bags, is no food or drinks are allowed in my purse. I just had too many embarrassing instances of being on the bus and my water bottle emptied itself in my bag or worse dressing leaked through a container. Well to get to the point, there’s a lunch bag that is both beautiful and practical for taking your own lunch.
The Modern Mary is a line of luxe leather lunch clutches to tote your healthy meals and save you $. This 100% Canadian made bag is available in two sizes, piccolo (small) and grande (large), it comes in many different colors and is also gender neutral (though my fiancé would NEVER take his own lunch let alone use a leather lunch bag).
The price range runs from $155-$188 which seems high but this is more of an investment piece than a buy once a year bag. The soft, genuine leather will be appealing to the eye and the water-resistant interior will prevent any awkward public transit smells and minimize damage to the bag itself. It also has a removable cutlery pouch and an insulated interior so your food will remain cold with the help of an ice pack (for cute patterned ice packs check out Honest.com)
If you’re heading to college/university this year or starting your first grown-up job or you just want to look good while you save money you should check out the Modern Mary. My fav is the Yorkville – piccolo in black!
