Daame. Designing and creating the essential work bag for women on-the-move. I’ve been looking so forward to writing this blog post because I truly believe this product is what all of us women have been looking for, needing, and wanting since we all started buying and wearing purses/bags. Staying clutter-free and organized throughout the day while looking chic and put together is always at the top of my list when looking for and purchasing a new bag, but I never found exactly what I was looking for, until now.
Being that our world is quickly changing to a place that’s not tethered to traditional workplaces and more “work-from-anywhere” options for jobs and careers are popping up, this calls for a bag that’s not only versatile with our wardrobe’s, but useful in organizing our daily essentials, whatever environment we’re working from.
As soon as my Daame Whitney Tote came in the mail I told my sister that this is what we’ve been looking for for years. There’s a protective pocket for my laptop or tablet, my phone, my sunglasses, a key holder so I never have to dig around inside my purse looking for them, a zipped pocket for my wallet, a mini pocket for my pen, a pocket for my gum and chapstick, and enough room to fit my toiletries bag, water bottle, and my DSLR camera that I take everywhere with me for work. There’s also a pocket on the outside of the purse on the back that I throw a protein bar or granola bar in when I’m on-the-go. I can actually fit every single thing in my purse for the first time, and not only fit it in, but it’s organized! I can see every compartment and know exactly where it all is so there’s no more endless searching in the dreaded purse abyss.
Along with the functionality of the bag, the design that meets functionality is unparalleled. I’ve never had a bag that had both. The soft, beautiful 100% Italian leather along with the ultramicrofiber suede inside and the gold embossed logo… so chic! It’s also lightweight which has always been a huge factor for me being that I carry so much inside my bag, and it’s water repellent so I never have to worry about the weather ruining my bag being that we live in New York and it’s always changing.
On top of everything else, I love that Daame is more than a collection of great products for women. They believe in equipping the world’s most vulnerable. They say talent is universal, but opportunity is not and those who are typically left out are girls. Daame addresses this problem by partnering with organizations that provide strategic support for girls from challenging backgrounds. Investing in a girl’s life means not only improving the quality of her life but our society at large. Their mission is simple: make great products and do good. I’ll always get behind a brand who’s creating beautiful, useful products and using their business to do good.
