What makes the perfect tote? Picture1

I have always favored big bags over small. It makes practical sense in my world. My ideal bag needs to fit in a truckload of things; my wallet, makeup stash, ipad, sunnies, and preferably have a separate compartment with easy access to my phone and keys. It also needs to accommodate sudden trips out with bubby (think baby wipes, water bottles, snacks).

To top it off, it needs to be super stylish and pretty light-weight (I’ve had bags that weigh down on my poor shoulder even when empty).

On the right is a compilation of leather totes I loved from Pinterest. I love the look of worn leather. It has a rustic worn-out charm and manages to look great with anything. The hunt was on, I needed a high quality leather bag that could easily take me from the boardroom to a day out with my toddler.

I have always been a fan of vintage glamor; the bright pouts, the polka dots, the beehive hair and especially the cat-eye frames. There is something bold and sexy about a woman who can carry off a cat-eye frame. It exudes a quirky edge, and can add a dramatic twist to any outfit.
