For Xmas my mother gave me a great canvas soft handbag, it is perfect tote for carrying my modeling portfolio to casting. Carrying a portfolio can be a pain in the butt, it is heavy and bangs against the side of your thigh, but a good handbag can make the load easier.
Here are the shapes I suggest:
LaCroix Handbags, by designer Jacquelyn LaCroix. Stylish and suitable for girls on the go, with a lot of pockets and plenty of room, this bag is perfect for a modeling portfolio or laptop.
This Neo Tote by Cynthia Rowley is very sassy and perfect, and 16" x 13" x 6" it will just it your portfolio and you can walk in style and also carry all you need.
This is a really cute bag by Cole Haan. I love Cole Haan's appeal and being 13.5" x 13.5" x 5" it will fit snug your portfolio and makeup case and agenda book.
