I’ve introduced you to my new boyfriend, now meet my old best friend. I confess I’ve got some pretty fancy bags and clutches cluttering my overstuffed closet. And I looove them all. But this good old Linea Pelle leather tote has lately emerged as a regular companion on my many work and leisurely outings. Size has definitely got something to do with it. It does take a girl an extra dose of effort and dedication to make the micro mini bag work and in most instances it just doesn’t cut it. Blame it on my cross-continental nomadic lifestyle but I have the undeniable propensity to want to carry around at least half my weight in extraneous stuff. But the catch is, I don’t ever want to look like I do. Well, my Linea Pelle tote to the rescue. It’s large enough for me to throw in a couple cameras, a set of extra lenses and all my usual unnecessary essentials without the slightest bulge. It’s slick. Utilitarian. Got the right amount of pockets all in the right places and its color goes with absolutely everything.
