My La Tropézienne tote arrived from Clare Vivier this week. It's the most delicious color brown, in eco-tanned, unlined Italian leather. I love it. I ordered the style with an 8 inch drop-handle that can easily slip over my shoulder. For inside, I just bought another small canvas cosmetic zip pouch from Hable Construction in Clementine Beads. I use Hable's canvas pouches as a wallet. They are sized perfectly for credit cards, checkbook, pill-box, lipstick and more. So, I've officially transferred from a simple straw tote from summer... now, let's see when I will finally slip-out of my flip flops - maybe by Thanksgiving?
