For some reason, I’ve repeatedly scrolled past the Tila March Zelig Large Canvas Tote on Net-a-Porter when looking for bags to share with you guys. I’m not sure why – maybe because it’s not exotic and showy? Not blinged-out enough? Who knows. What I do know, though, is that I took a good look at it for the first time today and I actually quite like it. The juxtaposition of the crisp white trim with the reddish-orange canvas is streamlined while still being a throwback to retro beach style; I could see a stylish women carrying something similar to the beach in the 1960s. Because of the simplicity and functionality of the bag, though, I think it does a good job of being retro without looking dated. It also looks like it would perform it’s assigned task quite well – the top opens super wide to reveal an interior lined in white fabric, making it easy to spot your belonging (and those pesky sunglasses that fall to the bottom) inside. Overall, if I had the extra scratch, I’d love to have one of these to take with me to the pool or beach this summer. Buy through Net-a-Porter for $470.
