Nordstrom has a number of great bags on sale right now, including the classic Longchamp ‘Le Pliage’ large tote bag. Only fun colors are on sale, such as ocean (pictured), as well as citrine, lilac, rosalie, and white — but if you’re just lugging stuff to and from the office, a happy pop of color can be a nice pick-me-up. Was $145, now $97 at Nordstrom. Longchamp ‘Le Pliage Large’ Tote Bag
2015 Update: This bag is now in our Hall of Fame! The brown-strapped Pliage (pictured) has continued to dominate offices for years — it comes in a zillion colors! — but if you prefer a more streamlined look, the Pliage Neo has straps that match the bag (in black as well as colors). Note that you can sometimes find Longchamp on sale during big Nordstrom sales.
