Doting on totes

June 29th, 2010

I have been on the quest for the perfect tote! What I have found is that finding the perfect tote has the Goldilocks effect – too big, too small, too stiff, too shapeless, etc. What I wanted was a tote that could hold big things without looking cumbersome, one that could be taken to an interview but be suitable for the beach. I finally found what I was looking for while shopping a sale at Banana – a cream colored buttery leather tote with sterling colored suede lining and straps just long enough to comfortable slip over a shoulder but short enough to be carried by hand. Bigger than a handbag and small than a piece of luggage – it is perfect. And it was the last one, already reduced with an additional 25% – a sign and a steal if you ask me. In case you can’t get your hands on this perfect tote, here are a few Nest-worthy totes:

The Market Bag in Organic Light Blue by Moop. Moop bags are handmade from the design to the finishing stitch. This market bag is made of 100% organic cotton. And while the outside looks soft and simple, the inside is full of structure and pockets to keep you organized.

The Where There Are Trees Weekender by Pansy Maiden – cruelty-free bags for cruelty-free people. Pansy Maiden bags are also made to order and 100% natural. This weekender bag is perfect for the gym or going to the office. The “hoodie” pockets” on the outside are subtle, stylish and practical.

Canvas Totes by Neiko Designs are produced upon purchase (seems to be the thing to do). This tote has a bit more structure to its shape, metal feet and rivets. With a pocket on the outside and zippered pocket on the inside, it would be a great accessory for holding your accessories at a sporting event or a day on the boat.
