I wasn’t planning on posting again today, but I wanted to do a review of the Roots Canada Small School Bag. I found this bag in sort of an odd way. I tend to watch TV shows, movies, and read magazines to see what the latest “thing” is in fashion and accessories. To my surprise I found that cross-body and messenger bags are back in style for men and women, thus my search for one began. I wanted one that could be practical for everyday as well as for work. Being a teacher, I needed a good quality bag. Last year, I broke two bags toting them back and forth to school. This year, I will be teaching at a small private school, so I’ll have less papers and books to take back and forth, BUT i do have to take my computer to work and back home. So I knew I wanted something that looked good (in case I wanted to stop by Starbucks or the bookstore on my way home) and something practical and sturdy. I looked at a Coach bag, some bags on eBags, and eBay, too, but nothing really caught my fancy. But…while on vacation in Florida, my husband and I saw the movie Letters to Juliet. In the movie, Sophie (played by Amanda Seyfried) carried a really cute leather messenger bag (see the picture at the top). With Google as my friend, I quickly searched “bag in letters to juliet” and found that there were lots of women looking for the same thing that I had been searching for. I finally found out that it was a Roots Canada Small School Bag by seeing a post on their official blog, Roots Buzz. The bag was not cheap ($278), but I found out what good quality Roots bags were, so I thought it would be a good investment. Although it was a bit hard to get the bag due to the popularity of it since the movie’s release, I finally got it today. And let me say, it is a great bag!
The back of the bag’s exterior sports the Roots Canada logo and it also has another zippered pocket for your things.
All in all, I am loving this bag. It has a great classic look and feel to it, and I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants a good bag that will last. I will be using this bag a lot in the coming years. So, the verdict….the Roots Canada Small School Bag gets a A from me! Good job, Roots!
