I am generally fairly frugal and rarely spend extravagant amounts of money on myself. I usually balk when an item costs more than $50, but I do treat myself once a year to something nice. Usually, I treat myself to a pair of shoes or handbag, which I consider an investment that I will always have.
I still use these tips to buy designer shoes for less (and handbags, if necessary) so that I can enjoy a splurge item for less.
I am completely smitten with the Madewell Zip Transport Tote. It’s not just a great leather tote, it’s simply the best! This bag stands out for having an adjustable crossbody strap, which is such a bonus compared to bags that just have a shoulder strap. By wearing it across my body, I never have to worry about my bag slipping off my arm. Plus, it’s the perfect size – roomy enough for all of my stuff, plus things like diapers and a changing pad if I’m on-the-go with my son. And thanks to the zippered top closure, I’m sure everything will be safe and sound inside. No doubt this is an amazing bag and I would wholeheartedly recommend it!
The moment my son was born, I realized I didn’t want to carry around a diaper bag, so I used my Madewell Zip Transport Tote instead.
The original Madewell Transport Tote, too, is an amazingly made leather tote. The only thing I didn’t like about it was the lack of a crossbody strap.
Here’s my little secret: I own almost all Madewell totes. In fact, I can’t remember the last time I purchased a purse or leather tote from another brand.
It’s amazing how well they’re made and how well they age.
My Madewell collection will soon include the next leather purse I’m going to purchase.
It’s amazing how the black and white contrasts with the brown leather in this Madewell Core Flap Crossbody Bag.
Black suede crossbody bag with tortoiseshell acrylic handle that can be worn with jeans or for a fancier night out.
A big reason why I love Madewell is their minimalist yet chic aesthetic. Lately, though, they’ve been branching out. If you’re looking for an animal print leather tote. Madewell is the place to go.
It’s eye-catching, fun, and on-trend right now, and leopard print seems to be ‘in’ every other season, so this is a bag you’ll use often!
