You do not have to compromise when you have a backpack like this in your wardrobe. The bag allows you to maintain a feminine look while having the convenience of a backpack to carry all your stuff in. The bowtie that is on the front of the backpack is affixed with the help of a metal rivet. This is in a contrasting color so that it will stand out and add to the decor of the bag. Grain leather throughout the bag is soft to the touch. Full zipper across the top of the bag opens it up so that you have full access to everything inside. The top handle allows you to carry the bag when you do not want to wear it. Leather straps attached to the back of the bag are adjustable so you can wear it as a backpack and have the amount of comfort you are looking for in the process.
