Totes Replace Purses as Status Symbols

with 2 comments

…or so says the New York Times! Can you believe it? Pure, sweet vindication for the superiority of totes over purses.

“Seemingly democratic and certainly affordable (if not free), the tote might be the ideal carryall for these post-luxury recessionary times. The tote’s status is stealth. It telegraphs not money but access, ethics, culture.”

Indeed.

It’s been far too long since my last post. So I’m kicking it off with a pair of killer totes given to my husband and me as a wedding gift by my fabulous cousin Elly. I love them and use them constantly.

Vogue Tote Spread

with one comment

Was recently flipping through a very old Vogue (May 2010!) when I found this lovely spread on totes. Good stuff.

The one negative? Those hunting boot heels make me want to barf.
