Milli Millu > personal assistant
Ah, the hazards of Fashion Month: composing a street style blog-worthy getup (or five) everyday, getting to shows on time (Ethan Hunt, meet your nemesis), remaining sane through the sleep deprivation (a Guantanamo Bay-certified form of torture), getting up sparkling reviews and spectacular photos (good luck actually getting those) on your site faster than Usain Bolt can run the 100m... Not a pretty picture.
For a better outlook, see above. The Milli Millu Zurich bag might not help with the sleep deprivation (in fact, in the spirit of full disclosure, I'll admit that it might actually aggravate the situation: such a chic accessory will get you noticed, and maybe even invited to those sleep-swallowing after-parties), but it'll certainly solve all your other problems. Tommy Ton? Eat your heart out. Gisele sauntering down the runway in the next cover-hogging star buy? Whip out your super-DSLR from the incredibly spacious bag and get snapping. Readers chomping at the bit and pageviews contingent on timely updates? No worries - get thee to a Starbucks and withdraw your MacBook Air from the special pocket in your Zurich (and your notes on the show that you just made from another specially designated compartment) and get going.
All in all, a great investment, and cheaper than a personal assitant. Probably chicer, too. Hey, this isn't Devil Wears Prada.
