Graphic Totes for the Gardening Impaired
Say it with me: Graphic-print fashion tote bags! Whew. That’s a mouthful. Luckily, the nice part about these canvas toes is that they’re easy to wear with anything, they’re big enough to hold every essential you feel you need (including 10 fashion magazines and an emergency bag of skittles), and they are perfect for summer vacations.
I have to admit that for a long time I was always over-dressed – for almost everything. While I did receive very nice compliments of ‘you always look so put together and polished,’ these days I strive to have a little bit more fun with my style choices (going from Sex and the City’s prim Charlotte-style to Carrie’s). It’s easy for me to love the Longchamp Flower Denim Tote ($320.00) from bloomingdale’s because I’m a sucker for rose prints. I wish I could grow some real roses, but I think that’s a huge task better regulated for people with green thumbs. The closest I can come to that is a pair of green knit gloves. Luckily, the roses on this tote bag don’t need constant watering. And in the meantime, I will befriend a Prince that will send me real roses on a daily basis!
Another floral tote to love is the LeSportsac Anna Tote ($75.00) at Macy’s. I like that it’s still a little proper, but the colors are there – it’s all kinds of pretty. Take it to a garden, a beach, or a yacht if you’ve got one. (Alert! – What women over 40 want!)
Ready to make the jump? No, not off the Titantic, but into some more dangerous waters nonetheless. I’m talking about the statement-making Polly Face Canvas Tote by Jimmy Choo (SALE $682.50) from Saks. If you wear this, just make sure your own face is looking flawless – you don’t want any competition.
Here’s to living in sublime style,
