lo+sons

O.M.G. Lo & Sons!

When I first heard about Lo & Sons (from Victoria and Christin, right around the same time) I have to admit – I wasn’t sure what was so special about their bags.  Sure, the bags were cute and all, but I didn’t understand what the fuss was until I looked inside.  Upon looking inside, I nearly squealed with delight.  So. many. compartments!  I needed one.  I went with the O.M.G., which is slightly smaller than the original O.G... but still holds a crazy amount of stuff.  The large compartment holds my Macbook Air, iPad, a notebook, all of my power cords, my DSLR, and my macro lense (with enough room for several craft supplies… this weekend, it was several packages of embroidery floss and a pair of scissors.)  On one side, there’s a panel that slides over the handle of your carry on (a traveler’s dream,) and on the other side there is a large pocket with several more compartments (perfect for holding the essentials – chapstick, passport, wallet, gum, etc.)  And at the bottom, there’s a compartment that holds my ballet flats.

What I love most about this brand is how thoughtfully they designed it.  It’s stylish, but truly practical.  (Inspired by Apple Products, and it shows.)  I travel a lot, and this bag makes my life considerably easier.

Now, the good news!  If you want one of these bags, you can get it – for 25% off!  Just use code, STRIPESANDSEQUINS – it expires at the end of July.

Disclosure:  Lo & Sons gifted me this bag.   I would have bought one myself, but sometimes blogging has its perks.

    I’m totally obsessed with my Savoy, but I think I might also need the OMG. Especially for days when I decide to run home or go to a morning fitness class. Hmmmm…

      Ooh, I love the Savoy, too! The OMG would work really well for the gym, too!

    I am soooooo jealous. Lusting over the OMG since forever. Would love a follow up post on this when you take her for a weekend (how much actually fits for travels)

      This is actually right down to the chapstick, what I fit in it last weekend… plus a clutch!  :)

      It really is – it’s so practical -and durable. I’m obsessed with mine.

    These bags are seriously amazing. So spacious and comfy! I’ve been using mine a ton this summer.

    I love the look, and it’s amazing it holds all of that stuff! It’s a real life Mary Poppins bag!

      That is the best explanation for it, ever! Love.

    I wonder how long does the bag last? I mean it looks durable, but with all the stuff that I would put in it makes me wonder.. that is my only concern before getting one because it looks awesome!

      graceatwood July 12, 2012 at 10:43 am #

      It’s really really durable. I have only had mine for a little while now but friends who got them a while ago say they hold up quite well! I think the quality is fantastic!

    I do love that bag of yours – it’s a really good size! I hope that you have a protective cover for those scissors though…

      graceatwood July 12, 2012 at 10:44 am #

      Obviously. :) Also they have their own compartment! Also… I love it when you comment!

    The more I see this bag, the more I’m convinced I absolutely NEED it. Now I’m just debating between this and the larger one, and which color.

    • Grace Atwood
      graceatwood July 12, 2012 at 10:44 am #

      I think this size is more versatile, but that’s just me! The pink and the cobalt are my personal favorites!!
