"It's been nearly six months since I moved to New York, and in that time I've learned three things about myself: I'm perhaps a little too nice, I'm almost never comfortable temperature-wise, and I'm a complete and utter klutz when I have to do anything that requires speed (i.e. taking the subway, living, etc.). So when William Okpo debuted their utility purse with accessible pockets and organized compartments, I knew it was a must-have for a fast-paced city life.
Not only does it come in the prettiest shade of plum, it's designed to only carry the bare essentials like your phone, keys, and those pesky MetroCards you lose at the bottom of your carry-all the minute you approach the turnstile (yikes). There's even a built-in sunglass pouch and wallet for your credit cards, money, and whatever else you don't consider useless junk."
