Anya Hindmarch Shopping Tote $98
Yes, the Anya Hindmarch "I'm Not a Plastic Bag" craze got a bit out of hand but theres little doubt that AH continues to churn out some of the best and most affordable totes. The question isn't where can you wear this purse to, it's where can't you?? This would probably only stay home when you're at a job interview or your nights out.
Longchamp Nylon Tote$125-$145
While I despise Prada's nylon purses, I am a big fan of Longchamp's nylon totes. Probably has something to do with the fact that Longchamp has the decency to sell nylon at reasonable prices. More classy chic than some of Anya Hindmarch's totes which means you can even take this to interviews! Yay...that means this bag would really only stay home on your nights out. Sweet.
Miss Marc Tote $188
$38 over my budget but so adorably worth it.
I'll keep looking for just a bit longer but most likely going to go with the Longchamp :)
