IT TAKES A LOT to get me excited about new products, and I'm not at all an advocate of off-body carry. (You can get away with a lot with a good inside the waistband holster in the appendix position, ladies.) I feel like that will give you an idea of how much I actually loved Beau + Arrow's Annie.

When I met Iris Yen and her sister and partner-in-crime. Betty, I ended up spending way too much time chatting with them. Iris started the company after she tried to purchase a concealed carry purse for a family member and couldn't find anything she liked. With her background, she was able to create her own amazing product. I'm normally a Coach purse girl, which is a stance not everyone who is into luxury handbags will understand, at least establishes my threshold for these.The Annie is one of the most practical, versatile, and straight-up gorgeous handbags I've seen. It has room for a 15-inch laptop and a full-size M&P. It's large enough to be a weekender bag, and sleek enough to be a day tote. The leather is soft, and there are small accents throughout that really take it from a normal bag to something next-level

I will probably not buy one to carry my gun in. My daily carry; a Kahr PM9 inan N82 Tactical holster that I should probably talk more about; serves me quite well However, I am going to buy one because it's a great handbag and I am a working woman who loves the idea of being able to fit a 15-inch laptop in a luxury bag. So if you are a lady, or you have one in your life, who is considering off-body carry and is interested in looking good doing it (or is just interested in a strong, practical, good-looking bag), I can't emphasize enough how amazing these Beau + Arrow bags are.
