we're meeting up with my mom at my grandma's house this next weekend in losangeles. and my mom gently reminded me that she's still wanting a messenger bag. well she didn't exactly call it that, but when she described what she wanted this is what she described.
she wanted it to rest on her hip, she wanted it just big enough to hold her wallet and keys and sturdy enough to go anywhere, especially the beach. where she goes every day. she practically lives there.
