Fashion Friday: Longchamp Tote Bag

I’m a sucker for a tote bag – my closets are filled with them. But I’m just the kind of person who likes to carry a lot of stuff at all times. I always want to keep my kindle, makeup bag, and a small knitting project with me, so I typically only use smaller purses for special occasions when it would be cumbersome to have a big bag. So, recently, I was browsing Nordstrom and saw this amazing tote bag that I really want: the Longchamp Large Le Pliage Croc Print Tote which retails for $250.

Longchamp is an iconic brand, and their sturdy bags are close to legendary. I’d love to have one someday, especially one like this that is more grey, silver, and black in tone. I feel like almost all of the Longchamp bags I see are brown (and I don’t buy things that are brown – I don’t have anything against it, but it’s just not a color used in my personal styling). So, this was an exciting find! I’m also such a fan of things that are croc-embossed.

Another huge plus is that the top zips completely! I find that so many tote bags just have a button snap clasp which leaves gaping sides so that things can fall out really easily if the bag is tipped over. I would much prefer a bag like this that zips completely. It does influence the general shape of the bag and makes it seem less roomy, but that’s a small price to pay for the general feeling of security.

What do you look for in a tote bag? Do you like this one? Be sure to let me know in the comment section!

  1. I hear about Longchamp through Alexa Chung (I think she was the brand ambassador or probably still is). A coworker of mine has one or so I think. It looks like one. I think it’s pretty cute (it’s in a navy blue colour) and it looks like it will last her another five years.
    I love totes! Bigger the better! I simply can’t have a small bag- I wouldn’t be able to fit anything in it. You’re right! I hate the ones that only have a button. Luckily, my current work bag has a proper zip. Only it’s more like a cylinder. But I love it.

  2. I’ve got 2 of the Longchamp bags. One in black and one in Khaki. I do like to carry a lot with me and because the bag weighs nothing it’s amazing! I can fill it until my heart is content. Such good quality and I’ve had them for years and years and use it on the daily for work. Great post! Anna xx (one half of the Cinnamon Buns and Roses Blog)
