The tote bag is the quintessential women's everyday accessory. It’s roomy and boasts a ton of space to stash all of your “crap” (think laptop, beauty essentials, work documents and the like), and is versatile enough to use as both a purse for work and a casual shopping bag for the weekend.
There are plenty of tote options on the market, but many of them command a relatively high price tag. While it’s undisputable that they are of great quality, their nondescript designs are often not worth the amount of cash you’re plunking down for them. Furthermore, you are probably going to be “abusing” this bag due to rough and tumble daily usage, so it’s going to endure quite a fair bit of wear and tear.
To me, it makes more economical sense to go for a good quality mid-range tote and leave the designer bags for the more luxurious and embellished designs.
Here are some great options that I highly recommend. Happy shopping!
