In Search of: Great Black Tote Bag

I am looking for a really great black tote bag that I can take to work/school and use as a carry on when I travel.  Something that holds everything and anything (including my laptop) and that has really sturdy handles.

I had a really great Coach tote bag that I used for years, but as with all great things that I have, I eventually wear them out.  So, since then, I've been trying to find something just as chic and yet even more practical for my many uses and major roughness with bags (I think this is a genetic mere has the same issues).

I came across this bag on pinterest about a month ago and totally fell in love with the style and just had to have it.  Although not black, it was something different.  I thought it was going to be perfect.  I was a bit unsure about the zebra print, but decided to step outside my comfort zone (not an animal print person) and give it a try.  Sadly, after 3 days of use, the bag tore.  The zebra print was made of straw weavings and pulled away from the leather seam.  Luckily amazon has a great return policy, so I'm returning the bag.  Clearly it was lousy quality or a sign from God that I own too many bags.  I would prefer to go with the latter :D

So once again the search is on. 

Here are some styles I am currently in love with:

(If I had a choice and money wasn't an option, this bag would be the ONE!)

I would buy this in a heartbeat, as it's in my price range, but it's out of stock :( Why?? Why is the one bag that I can afford not available.  Cruel world I tell you!

  1. What a shame about the bag - not meant to be, I guess. The others are so pretty.
