The 4 types of bag and purses you need to have right now

Bags, you either love them or hate them. I have many, many bags. But I also pretty good at recycling them. Every time I buy a new bag or purse, one needs to go. And from years of experience with work, travel and life in general I believe there are 4 types of bag every women needs to have.



#1 The small bag

The small bag is for coffee-meetings, short errands and dates. This bag will hold only your essentials. Keys, phone and money. Throw in a lipstick and you are ready to go. The pros of this bag are that you will never have to dig in to find something. You will never bring stuff you don't use and it looks a so pretty with everything. And as a bonus it will fit in any other bigger bag.


#2 The shoulder bag

This bag is  bigger and should hold up anything around the size of an A4 paper. That means notebooks, laptops, loose papers and everything else you try to shove in there (your heels, reusable water bottle, receipts, sandwich from yesterday). Therefore the perfect work bag. Classy, stylish and ready to go to work with you on a every day basis.


#3 The tote

This is the mother of all bags. My go to diaper bag. It's huge by any standards, fits everything from laptops to bottles and toys. Looks stylish and put together. But also has room for your work-out clothes, shoes and baby wipes. Whether you are running around like a headless chicken or a calm and collected person, this bag holds your life, when you need it the most.


#4 The backpack

Yes, the backpack is back. And ever since high school I have been weary of owning one. I always felt the only time to legitimately wear a backpack is on the slopes, or hiking. But fashion is a strange thing and the backpack is packing...everywhere. And it has grown on me. Not all backpacks. Eastpack I loved you in high school, but that 30 year warranty is wasted on me. 

Nowadays all the main brands are diving into the backpack craze, and I have yet to buy one...but I do occasionally borrow one from my husband.

We are Olivia & Morgan

So both in our 30's, with exciting careers including fast track to CEO positions, we met at RSM Business School during our MBA in The Netherlands. 

Always afraid to drop the ball, we quickly figured out life after 30 is not about having everything together, but more about developing yourself, knowing who you and what your goals are and ESPECIALLY  knowing how to get there.

Because we can all dream, but turning that into action and reality is a huge challenge.

So we created this platform to develop and achieve your goals step-by-step.

We truly believe that if you can dream it, you can make it happen. Anything you want, you can achieve.  

This is the philosophy of Eve & Elle and the core concept behind every article we write and product that we develop.

Everything we do is about helping you make it happen.
