Admittedly, this little tote isn’t anything special. It’s a cream-colored canvas bag with a kitschy little message on it, and that’s about it. But I like the Michael Kors NYC Anniversary Tote anyway.
It probably stems from my love for Kors and his appearances on Project Runway – he’s an affable, fake-tanned, fabulous geigh that loves sportswear and his mommy and likes to snark on people, so of course I love him. And sometimes it’s okay to love a bag as much for the personality behind it as for the bag itself, and there’s nothing wrong with supporting someone you like. Also, I had no idea that this year was New York’s 400th anniversary, so this bag taught me some history as well! History that isn’t corroborated by Wikipedia (which doesn’t necessarily mean it’s not true, it just means I’m done looking), but whatever. If Michael Kors says that New York was founded in 1609, that’s when it was founded! Buy through Bloomingdale’s for $98.
