The backpack is an omnipresent feature on college campuses. Even though your Northface backpack is handy to, say, lug around heavy textbooks, they are not exactly the most stylish accessory. As the real world looms nearer, I am on the hunt for [even] more totes to haul my stuff!
First up, this Steve by Steve Madden tote. I like that it is simple with nice hard wear. It also comes in white and black, so all the basics are covered. Unlike some of my current totes, I could see this one working well for school, work, and life in general. Plus, you have to love that it is less than 200 dollars.
Isabella Fiore purses are always beautifully detailed. This tote is pretty neutral as well but the buttons and cross hatches make it special. (It also comes in an olive color if that is more to your liking.) Of course, it is more expensive than the first option. This pretty canvas and leather tote comes in just below 400 dollars. Hey, Isabella does not come cheap!
In the same neutral zone, this Hogan tote just stole my heart. The structure is more distinctive than a normal rectangular type tote. Even though the design is fairly simple, it is still eye catching. No one is going to think you picked this lovely accessory up at the nearest Wal-Mart. (Ick!) Too bad it is almost, gulp, 900 dollars which can take a big bite out a college students budget.
I love Tory Burch as previous posts have noted. This causal tote is right up my alley. Unlike some of the other totes in this post, this is easily in my price range too. It is only 175 dollars! Nice!
All these options make the tired backpack look even worse. I guess they will still have some use if I take a hiking day trip...
