I spent the vast majority of my life as a competitive athlete. In fact, PurseBlog wouldn’t exist if it weren’t for me being an athlete; Vlad and I met on our college swim team. The day I was done swimming, I was done swimming. Actually I was done working out entirely. I was burned out and ready to veg out on the couch for years.
Recently, I started to get the urge to get back in shape and going to the gym involves picking out a gym bag, which was a great way to entice myself. Right when I spotted the Diane von Furstenberg Sporty Drew python-effect leather tote, it struck my fancy. Easy to use as your city-schlepping bag, this bag will look cute while being practical to carry workout essentials.
I love the colorblocking aspect to the tote, with a grey python-effect leather body, black leather trim, white top handles, and a bright pink shoulder strap. The size is large enough to fit a change of clothes, food, water, sneakers, but it is not one of those hold-everything-and-anything gym bags. That is what I like about this tote, it is cute and practical. Buy through Net-A-Porter for $850.
