Once September hit this year I realized how busy this fall and the holidays were actually going to be. You see, I had unintentionally scheduled a trip for every single month. I am not a jet setter type of gal, I am not a seasoned traveler and I hate airports/flying because of, well this oh and well just the chaos that ensues trying to get through security. Although I did find out a little to late that you can apply for pre-check which I think is $80 to apply and you never have to wait in a security line again.
Anyways. Back in the summer I had been eyeing this Tote from Stella & Dot and I knew I was going to be travelling a lot and I wanted a nice tote that was big enough to haul my DSLR camera when I went. So I decided to just splurge and buy the bag for myself. Apparently according to friends my “Trader Joes” tote just wasn’t working on the stylish front.
When I got it I loved it. The only thing I think is that maybe the straps could have been a little bit longer but all in all it is a terrific tote. I was able to pack a small zippered pouch that carried my wallet and a few essentials I needed plus a lap, camera a book and three magazines. The tote has several pockets which is also great and after I bought the tote I forgot to look to see if it had a zippered closure and when I got it I was thrilled to find out that it did in fact have a zippered closure.
This tote is great for work, school, or I have even used it for a weekend trip because there is plenty of room for some clothes and a beauty bag.
Now, the sad news about this tote. It is in fact sold out 😦 I know. How mean of me to share it but then tell you that you can’t have it. BUT I did want you to know that Stella & Dot has several other totes that I love that even better than this one. I picked a couple that I really liked and I was swaying between before I chose this one.
I actually adore this tote. I was going to get this one but it didn’t have a zippered enclosure so I opted for the Bond Tote. But this is on my list too because actually the straps are a bit longer on this tote and there is slightly a little more room which means I could hide even more junk in this tote. It also comes in a gorgeous Colbalt Blue and it actually looks better in person than online.
Are you a fan of Stella & Dot totes? Which is your favorite?
