I was walking in the LES (Lower East Side, for those of you who don't know..), with a broken heart on my sleeve. I just broke up with my boyfriend, and was headed for some retail therapy. I stumbled upon a street fair in Manhattan and found Insiders 1. I immediately saw a bag with the "Love One Way" image. I thought to myself, "is love a one way street?!" OMG, sometimes it is, sometimes it isn't. This was getting heavy, I started to cry, holding the bag in my hands. I had to buy it. It made me feel happy and empowered again.
With my new fabulous bag, I noticed that guys were checking me out left and right. This is what I needed. Men were giving me double takes as I walked by. It was awesome. Then I saw him; staring me down. He stopped, and looked at my bag. Energy was blazing between us. I didn't know what to say. He finally broke the ice, and said "is love a one way street?" I said "do you want it to be?", he said "My name is Valentin.." I blushed, it was sign of the start of a beautiful friendship. We both still don't have the answer to our question "is love a one way street" , but we do know that we love each other.
I was in London. I was lonely. I went to the British Museum to gaze at some Italian Renaissance paintings. I was carrying my “New York” Milano Large Messenger Bag filled with my journals and IMAC lab top. As I sat gazing at the paintings…a woman stopped and sat next to me. She was older. She was hot. She was a Cougar. She was starring at me. I was uncomfortable, yet excited. What was she going to say, or do? We sat in silence. The tension was getting wierd. I was shaking. I finally realized that she was looking at my Insiders 1 “New York” Messenger Bag. Then with a graceful, swift gesture, she opened her purse and brought out a “Cyclone” wallet. Our eyes met and glimmer of respect was exchanged… We understood each other.

One story from a fan….
“I am a big fan of Insider’s 1. I have most of the bags and accessories in different images and love them all! I was traveling in Japan, and Europe and carried my “Brooklyn Tote Bag” with me everywhere. I received compliments everywhere I traveled, people asked to me “I love your bag, where did you get it?” …
Insider’s 1 bags are the best bags to TRAVEL with!
See some pics of my favorite bags and gloves!"
