I’ve spotted lots of fashion-conscious women here in New York City carrying this Le Pliage Tote by high-end handbag designer Longchamps (who also just introduced a new line by Kate Moss). It is a classic look, and pricey too (this smallest tote- which measures just 9 3/4″ x 9 3/4″ costs $125). But it goes with everything from jeans to dresses, and is water-resistant too. It comes in lots of colors; I like the pink “rosalie” best. Keep it in mind for a special Mother’s Day gift! $125 at Nordstrom.
