Before everyone drones on about how this is sooo boring, consider that it is a Tod’s and they are known for the subtle and classic appeal. OK, fine, it is boring. But an immaculately made bag that is timeless and full of function definitely has its merits. And for a lot of women, that what they want, a bag that lasts forever and goes with everything. Well, this surely will and does. I saw this bag at Fall Preview and I instantly fell in love for the color. It is a warm gray, which they are calling Tan, but it is definitely more ashy than fleshy. And the simplicity is kind of mesmerizing, like a Valextra, looking at it puts you in a trance. It is so soothing and nice. Nothing wrong with a bag I’ll use well into grandmotherhood. At Saks Fifth Avenue for $1445. Or call my good friend Carla at the Beverly Hills store at 310.285.0591.
