Oddly enough, I was attracted to this Tory Burch Nylon Ella Tote because I am wearing an outfit that consists of the exact same colors on this tote: grape and Egyptian teal. That aside, the tote practically screams cutesy and fun to me. It has that signature Tory Burch shape and style, but with a few minor quirks.
I first thought this bag would be perfect for the beach or pool, but the model shown carrying it is wearing the usual New Yorker outfit of black boots and parka. Surprisingly, the burst of color works very well with the outfit; perhaps Tory is suggesting that we infuse more color into our winter wardrobes? Whatever the case, it’s a playful mix of sophisticated and fun.
But the tote is certainly not for those who’d rather stick to their black and tan leather basics. No, this needs a brave toter, one who’s not afraid of rocking a teal leopard-print in the shape of a heart. And it’s for those of you looking to incorporate animal prints in a bold fashion, or those who really want a taste of the 80s with modern sleekness and bubbly color. So have fun, pair it with your work suit, and see what that plum does for you. Buy through Net-A-Porter for $195.
