Jerome Dreyfuss Didier Convertible Backpack Tote I immediately thought of Indiana Jones (Jane?) when I saw this convertible tote. Not him, really, but his rugged style- he always looks as though he’s ready to jump off a green army truck into some desert to fight some bad guys. Anyways, that is what I thought of while looking at this Jerome Dreyfuss Didier Convertible Backpack/Tote. There are both good and bad aspects to this bag.

I switched from carrying a backpack to using a tote for books when I went to college (late, I know) and I still remember how much lighter my load seemed in a backpack. This bag provides that functionality. Not carrying much? Use it at a tote. Suddenly you have to bring your computer and a bunch of books and papers across town? Simple, use it as a backpack. But on the down side, it’s Indiana Jones-y (not in a cute rugged kind of way, but in a real rugged kind of way). And unless you’re rockin’ that kind of safari attire, I think this looks a little rough to wear with summer wedges. Study abroad in Egypt, perhaps? Was $1095, but get it now through ShopBop for $766.50.

    Hmm…I can’t really decide how I feel about this bag. Whereas I love the functionality of it, I’m not sure if I like the fact that it can become a backpack. Sure, we all want a bag that can do it all, but maybe it is better in theory than practice :) Definitely too rugged for me, but cool concept! Thanks for this post!

    I love Jerome Dreyfuss and since becoming a mummy I need all that functionality and more! Also I like the fact that he’s still a bit of an unknown well certainly in my neck of the woods anywho!! This is my most recent purchase!

    Hmmm, not sure about this one. There is something about a back pack that just makes me think of students and hippies, not that tere is anything wrong with either of them, it is just not what I would associate with a $1000 handbag.
    Got my eye on this seasons leopard print Twee Mini. Just delightful.
