Why does Elie Tahari keep doing this to me? Do they know how hard it is to continually look at their bags, get all excited that they’re gorgeous, and then have to convince myself not to buy all of them so that I can pay rent and buy food? Do you think that the Elie Tahari Mira Tote is big enough for me to live in?

If I thought I could get plumbing installed, I would break my lease right now and move straight in to this beautiful bag. It’s incredibly soft, beautifully textured and big enough for even the most harried businesswoman but still casual enough to be carried on weekends. Elie Tahari, why can’t I quit you?

This bag might be a tad pricy, but it’s got the details and style of a much more expensive bag. Tahari seems to be poised to turn itself into a mid-range Valentino, at least in the accessories department – when I look at this bag, I see the same sort of plush, ornate luxury that is characteristic of some of Valentino’s leather bags. In that context, the price seems much more reasonable. Buy through Bloomingdale’s for $898.

    Besides a fortune cookie, it looks like something else and I don’t want to say what that is. I would feel very uncomfortable carrying out in public.

    i love big hobos!!!! <3 color is nice and i like the design (fb)

  • Jane

    I love it,but I wish it didn’t have the extra ruffle down the middle because I think it takes away from the continues lines of the bag.

  • Kai Moore

    hmm, this bag looks alternately like a fortune cookie, or, to be a bit crass, like a vagina! I can’t imagine feeling comfortable walking around with a bag this inherently kitschy, no matter how soft or lovely it feels.

    I bought this bag on sale in Las Vegas and loved it so much I had to hunt it down in black. The leather is butter soft, the lining beautiful satin and I carry it all time time, even if it’s half empty. I feel luxurious and rich… Fabulous bag – highly recommended. You can fold in the sides to make it smaller. Gets lots of comments and people just want to touch it. Simply the best…
