Splurge vs. Steal: The Fall Tote

Splurge vs. Steal: The Fall Tote

On this week’s edition of steal vs. splurge: the beautiful “leather” tote bag.

Since I bought this bag, I have used it nearly every single day. It can be casual or dressy. It can be a catch all for crap or it can be as organized as all get out! I wanted a brownish colored bag for fall, but did not want to spend a ton of money.  And, I really wanted a tote-sized bag because, let’s face it, we all carry way too much around with us!

I loved and lusted over this bag from Madewell.

It was exactly what I wanted, but $100 more than I wanted to spend. Then, I happened upon the Nordstrom BP version of the same bag.  It’s called the Street Level Reversible Faux Leather Tote and it’s only $48.  Yes, I said reversible: 2 bags in 1 for $48! It’s a beautiful reddish brown on one side and a lighter camel color on the other side. Oh, and I forgot, it also comes with a zipper pouch that can be detached. It really is better than what I was looking for!

(I also found a similar version at Urban Outfitters for $58!)

Happy shopping!
