Augusta Glitter Backpack

We’re of the belief that you can never have too much sparkle (unless we’re talking loose glitter, which we all have a love-hate relationship with). But when glitter comes in backpack form, there’s no danger of being covered in it for weeks to come, which is exactly why we’re putting this bag on our wish list. Also available in silver and pink, the drawstring backpack features a magnetic top flap and a zip-up pocket in the front designed to keep your smelly dance shoes separate from the rest of your belongings.

Repetto Duffle Bag

If space always seems to be an issue, consider this classic duffle option. Big enough to double as a weekend bag, Repetto’s design includes cinched sides for a chic update, as well as black canvas and mesh options for a more traditional or sporty style.
