Coffee Break – Janis Tote

See by Chloe Janis toteOooh: Love. I like that this See by Chloe tote is sized big for a magazine or a few work papers, and that the shoulder straps look long enough to be comfortable. As a minor aside, I wish it had a lighter interior lining (so you could actually see the multiple pockets it supposedly has) or feet for the bottom, but ah well. Zappos has it on sale today: it was $495, now marked to $396. See by Chloe – 9S7078-N81 (Janis)


Coffee Break: Caroline Pleated Leather Tote

Badgley Mischka Platinum Label Caroline Pleated Leather ToteLove this leather bag from Badgley Mischka Platinum Label, available in both black and brown. The pleats look great, and while I normally don’t like the look of the crossbody, I could actually see this one being a versatile look. The bag was $498, but as part of Bloomie’s sale it’s marked to $373.50. Badgley Mischka Platinum Label Caroline Pleated Leather Tote
