Daily Covet: Totemania

I realize my last post was also about a certain black tote. But if you remember, my current fabulous tote is on it’s way to being un-fabulous due to worn out straps that will break at the sheer mention of putting my laptop in it.

So my search has turned to frenzy and I’ve already notified my dear husband that the next gift-giving opportunity should include one of many of the great totes I’ve laid eyes on lately.

Here’s my current list in addition to that nylon HUNTER one that I blogged about the other day:

You can’t go wrong with Kate. She makes some pretty damn good bags. I should know, I have quite a few. I love this bag with the winged look that you can find on so many other bags, but at a fraction of the price. My only complaint is that it might be a bit dressy for my needs. I’m looking for the SAHM-everyday tote that won’t be seeing the inside of an office anytime in the near future.

This Zac Posen number is probably my favorite. It has a sophisticated vibe without being too dressy. It’s simple and roomy and the leather looks like it would feel like butter!

I should give the disclaimer that this Jason Wu beauty is my actual favorite but at over $1K a pop, it’s just not a practical choice. I’d be too scared to let a snack near it!

I’m a big fan of the two-tone detailing for obvious practical reasons and I love the long strap option, which I don’t have now and occasionally wish I did. A very good choice at a very good price.

You gotta love patent leather. It just makes a nice, black bag all the nicer. I love the gold hardware and the roomy handles. It looks sturdy too with plenty of room for my whole life that I lug around with me each day.
