In the “sometimes a good sale is a curse” department, Endless is having an amazing sale on bags right now (ends today), including bags like Cole Haan, botkier, Rebecca Minkoff, Kate Spade, and more. Four separate Cole Haan bags are currently hurtling their way through the mail to me via free shipping. (Three are going back, I swear.) But: Yes. Good sale. One of the bags I bought was this Cole Haan bag, which I’ve lusted after in the department store — supremely soft, nice size for when you don’t need to carry papers or notebooks, and can go from work to weekend without much problem. Was $428, marked to $235.40 (in black and red); price drops to 164.78 with 30% special offer. (It only shows up at checkout!) Also available in gray (for $428). Cole Haan Prudence Small Soft Tote
