Lanvin Kansas Tote


Lanvin Kansas Tote in Gold metallic $2,030

My friend, the fabulous Shoe Goddess, and I are pining over Lanvin metallic bags this season. We’ve narrowed it down to the metallic Maxi Miss (which Kelly really wants in white) and the Lanvin Kansas tote. I am partial to the Kansas tote even though the Maxi Miss is more my style but the Kansas just looks so comfortable and casually chic! All the other Lanvin bags I’ve been considering have chain straps and the thought of chains, beautiful or not, on my bare shoulders in the summer is a bit excruciating. I love how simple this tote is, but it’s not without style. Little details like the ruched top and silver nikel hardware against the supple metallic leather really funks it up. This is a great bag for me to travel with, the handles slip over the shoulder and leave both my hands free to schlep my son and his gazillions of travel toys around. The size is huge but surprisingly light. Yes, I’ve already tried it on at Barneys and if I am still obsessing over it in a month I’ll go for it. $2,030 at or call 469.221.4725

    Shoe Goddess! We’re so jealous you got one! That is one FABULOUS looking bag! It’s also so light and functional, you’ll use it forever. Kelly and I both want one in bronze… Mother’s Day is coming up so perhaps we’ll treat ourselves 🙂

    Nice job on your site darling, looking really good!

    hello girlfriends it’s me the shoegoddess, here is my advice although mother day might be at the corner, but if you don’t run fast it won’t be a single Kansas Lanvin available.Anyway at Barneys in Beverly hills, they only had left the gold and two huge silver and bronze one,but the shape is different and it’s a really a huge bag.By the way any advices on a white tote or shoulder bag,chic and simple and not too big.I bought a Givenchy white very elegant,but it’s to wide for my size.

    Looking forward for your advices.



    keep me posted

    LOL! I found this bag at a thrift store for $7 bucks. Might be 8 years old, but the mere thought of wasting near 3k on a bag is ridiculous. That money can go to something way more meaningful. Glad I don’t need to pay that much for a purse to feel special. So happy I’m not caught in the illusion of success or exclusiveness. So grateful!
