I have been on an all-out hunt for the perfect tote. With a couple of impending trips and a mini crossbody binge in my rearview, it occurred to me that I should probably pick up something that could accommodate more than just my cell phone and credit card.
I’ve got a complicated relationship with totes. During my most formative teenage years they had a major moment, and that meant that every store you walked into had their own version – some (okay, lots) of which were just plain ugly. After seeing one too many cringe-inducing iterations I basically wrote them off.
I’m not sure whether it’s out of necessity or curiosity, but I’ve fully embraced this versatile and spacious staple. And I’m here to share all of my newfound knowledge. There’s something for everyone: the hype girl, the business babe, the working mom who’s doing the most. Oh, and they come in every price point under the sun.
