Every member of the PurseBlog staff has counted themselves as residents of New York City at one point or another, and that means that we all appreciate a tote bag that’s both stylish and functional. For our fourth National Handbag Day handbag reveal, we’re proud to present a bag that’s just that: the Diane von Furstenberg Large Sutra Ready to Go Fringe Tote.
The tote, which is part of our special series with Bloomingdale’s in celebration of National Handbag Day, is everything we look for to liven up our dark city wardrobes. Not only is the vibrant red color totally gorgeous (and, not to mention, difficult to achieve in leather), but the fringe adds a bit of texture without adversely affecting functionality.
The cherry on top, of course, is the contrasting pop of fuchsia that peeks out from inside the bag. When combined with its large size and lightweight construction, this bag is a perfect option for showing off a bit of your personality at work or toting your kid’s essentials on the weekend. That the bag can work for such a range of needs is one of our favorite things about it.
