It’s Time for Totes Pt. 1: Longchamps, Lilly & Pucci Prints!

If we are going to converse on the topic of totes, then we must come out with it and admit we lust after one (truth be told, it’s actually more than one) from the generally-not-considered-preppy Longchamp line, their Lumiere Tropicale Handbag in the Shades of Green colorway. At only 10″ square we consider it something akin to a Baby Tote, but it is 5″ wide, making it tote-like, yes?

Then there’s also Longchamp’s Lumiere Tropicale Tote, in their Shades of Orange stripes, also a looker. And don’t let it be said The Princess isn’t into practicality these days, as this one is larger than our previous example and could easily double as a carry-on if one is forced to travel in Economy Class on holiday. (Oh dear, what a dreary thought.)

Additionally we are in love with this fabulous offerings seen below from Roman Savell, dubbed the Resort Tote. When you click on the link, be sure to go through all six additional images so you can see the thermal insulated bottom, simply a divine addition to a tote! Whilst the majority of Savell’s Handbags and Mom Bags would not be considered ‘preppy,’ TP thinks this one fits the bill perfectly. (The Princess is also fond of Savell because the logo bar is mercifully small by today’s standards.)

And then we simply have to show one of our favorites, the Pucci Sundial Canvas Beach Bag exclusively at Net-a-Porter. (We simply lovelovelove all Pucci prints and can’t seem to get enough of them.) When you buy this one, you’re also doing something for a good cause; all net proceeds go to Fashion Targets Breast Cancer® Worldwide. Besides that, you have to love a bag when its only logo is inside on the magnetic snap, other than the hidden signature on the fabric, a la Lilly.

Speaking of Lilly, it just doesn’t seem right to talk about totes without mentioning one of hers. In fact, we’ll do one today and another one in out Tote Part Two, coming tomorrow. Here is the kinda’ wacky, kinda’ wow, kind of PVC-ish pair of Lilly Pulitzer Beach Totes from Horchow. (TP had no idea they carried Lilly!)

Frankly, we much prefer the large Lilly Via tote, available almost anywhere you find Lilly.
