We’ve mentioned Cole Haan’s line of polished convertible backpacks before, but if you’re looking (for yourself or a gift-ee) for a functional bag that has a slight twist, I love the looks of this “puff” backpack. The quilting adds just a bit of flair, and the fact that you can carry by handle or as a backpack are both great.
The bag is $267 (down from $330) at Zappos; you can also find it at Cole Haan, Nordstrom, and Amazon. (Cole Haan is currently the lowest price — you could probably get Nordstrom to price match it, though.)
