Every girl needs a good tote, right? I personally love totes. I love the simplicity of a good tote bag. You can “throw” all your essentials in it without worrying about pockets, snaps, fitting it between things, etc. I was using the Longchamp Le Pliage for many years, and I absolutely love that bag. It is lightweight, classy, functional, as well as very affordable. But I wanted something a little more high-end–ie: more expensive, because who doesn’t love fancy, nice things..? I looked at many brands and although I love the style of the Louis Vuitton Neverfull, it is just a bit too ubiquitous for me… I also wanted something a little less “flashy”. My new tote bag was going to be my work bag, and I wanted something nice but understated. So when I saw the Mansur Gavriel tote bag… it seemed pretty much perfect. I ordered my bag in December 2015 after waiting for about a month for the restock.
