How to unload that guilt you’re lugging around

STM small loft shoulder bag So you’ve tasted the forbidden pleasure of carrying a laptop bag without a laptop inside. But the weight of these occasional indiscretions is beginning to bear heavily on your conscience. What if someone discovers your secret?

There’s no need to panic. You need to transfer that uncertainty you’re feeling onto other people. Make them wonder, and you won’t have to worry about your own transgressions. You can do this with something like the Loft shoulder bag from Australian luggage-maker STM. The Loft comes in two sizes, both in a deep brown textured polyester with an orangish polyurethane trim.

Spot someone carrying a Loft, and you’ll have to guess whether he carries a laptop inside it. Does he or doesn’t he? Only his purse-snatcher will know for sure.
