Gift Guide: Chic Storage Pouches


Deux Lux Elle Pouch ($45)

I love leather pouches.  I organize my handbag and school bag with pouches like this one (medications in one, pens in one, etc.).  This Deux Luxe pouch is nice.  I also love this gorgeous eggplant bag from Yoox.  And these metallic West Elm pouches are my favorite.

Prefer something not made of leather?  J.Crew has a cool metallic canvas bag.  But these personalizable pouches from Mark & Graham may be the best ones I found.  I love the neutral black and tan colorblock.

    LOVE these. I use pouches constantly to switch purses quickly, and always am looking for new, chic ones.

    I have a similar pouch from C. Wonder and I love it, especially for travel. I throw in my passport, boarding pass, phone, keys, headphones, lip balm, and any other little thing that I need to have easy access to. Makes getting through security a breeze and I don’t waste time digging through my carryon for essentials.

    Related question, Belle: I’m looking for something to take to meetings that is more feminine (and multi-functional) than the traditional portfolio and this post made me realize that an oversize pouch/clutch might be just the thing.

    Ideally, the bag/pouch/portfolio would be large enough for a letter-sized notepad, my phone, a pen and chapstick but chic enough to carry to any post-meeting lunches or dinners. The Alberta Di Canio featured in this post (from Yoox) is almost perfect but a bit too small. Any other ideas?

    P.S. This search has perplexed me for nearly a year and during that time I’ve grown to loathe, even more than previously, dragging my purse to meetings that are just a few floors down or in the next building. Your help is needed and greatly appreciated!
