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.
