I’ve had the same black leather Coach tote bag for more than thirty years, so I’ve been thinking about getting a tan one. The lighter color looks great in all four seasons, whereas the black one can seem harsh on a warm sunny day.
If you’ve followed me for a while, you may remember that I do lots of research and think about how often I will use/wear an item before investing in anything new. A tan tote bag has been on my shopping list for about five months. I’ve found a couple that I liked a lot, but they were about $200 (or more!). That’s a lot of money for something I don’t use very often.
Family members visited this past weekend. Our teenager wanted to go to Plato’s Closet. (It is a chain retailer buying & selling trendy secondhand clothing for teens & young adults.) I will admit, I thought I would be waiting patiently by the door, or maybe out front if the music was loud. It was my first time visiting the store.
As I was standing by the register waiting for the others to try on their choices, I saw this tan Lauren tote hanging on the pegboard behind the counter. I was astonished to learn the price was only $17! It is almost new, so I bought it.
My summer ‘uniform’ is a blue top with white pants, so the tan accessories complement the colors very well. My blue and white striped cotton shirt is old from Everlane. Similar here. My white jeans are from last year by Ralph Lauren. Similar here. The sandals are a couple of years old. Similar here. My watch is by Nordgreen here, where they are offering you a discount code (SUSAN15). Referral and affiliate links in my posts may result in a small commission for me at no additional cost to you.
Some of you wrote that I was remiss not to show my eyeshadow in a photo with my eyes closed in the previous post. I apologize. Blending is the key, and I don’t take any dark colors to the lid’s outer portion.
