RETAIL THERAPY: Bags

...tote, clutch, shopper, messenger...I love them all! The bigger the better in my view, but no matter what the colour, shape or size you prefer, look no further than Etsy to find the perfect one for you. Here are some of my favourite designers and their beautiful wares.

The classic Boat and Tote® from L.L.Bean is a staple for me. An everyday bag that will last forever. Read more here.
"While other totes have come and gone, after 64 years our Boat and Tote Bags set the highest standard and come in the widest variety. Maine-made using heavy-duty cotton canvas and our signature double-layer base and handles, each tote is sturdy enough to stand alone. Originally designed to haul ice "from the car to the ice chest," today our sturdy Boat and Tote® is used to carry beach gear, groceries, garden supplies, workout clothes, toys and just about anything else. Reinforced flat canvas bottom and overlapped seams double-stitched with nylon won't rot or break."-via L.L.Bean.
Customise your own, with seasonal colours, allowing you to choose the size, the colour of the body, base and handles (and their length) and even add a monogram. Well, why not?
The Heritage Boat and Tote is the perfect example of L.L.Bean's classic practical approach to their iconic and timeless bag. Available in black or natural (below). This new tote was designed using documents found in the L.L.Bean archive, and features a leather handle wrap and brass rivets for reinforcement to make this surely the most sturdy of them all. This is my kind of Vintage!
