State of Mind.

A review of STATE Bags, a canvas accessory that can be converted into a tote or over-the-shoulder carry on.

On one of those crazy days at work, I found my co-worker sent a recent article from Gear Patrol. After glancing at all the pictures, I found my eyes drawn to this one hipster-looking picture featuring this STATE bag.

If the Queen B (Beyoncé) can collaborate with this company, then something is clearly going right.

For those of you who don’t know, I can’t use backpacks (except baby knapsacks) because I have a horrible back. But if you’re looking for some back-to-school gear, or a chic way to carry your laptop to work, view all of the Bedford and Lorimer styles. They remind me of less-basic Herschel.

I bought The Ashton in an olive-green color. It’s light, versatile and most importantly, it fits my DSLR camera. A button in the back clips the strap so it can be used as a tote or one-shoulder bag (similar to a backpack).


The two bridle leather pulls and the shiny silver zippers gives you more options when you try and pair the bag with your outfits.

For a custom-look and personal touch, I added my pins from Pintrill. Featured on the bag are the OG, I woke up like this and the no new friends pins.  Make sure to look at all the accessories available on Pintrill so you can add a special touch to your blank canvas.


The best part about purchasing this bag is that for each Ashton sold, STATE hand-delivers another bag to an American child in need, complete with essential tools for success. You make a difference in someone else’s life, while also receiving a new accessory!
