I recently purchased the Michael Kors “Uptown Astor Shoulder Tote” and I believe it to be stunning. When I came across the Be & D “Garbo Convertible Tote” I couldn’t help but be reminded of the Michael Kors bag. Both are black, the same shape, have detachable shoulder straps and feature lots of goldtone hardware. Granted the Be & D tote has goldtone hardware all over the bag, but the two bags are fabulous and have similarities.
The Be & D tote has a little too much goldtone hardware for my liking, but the bag is gorgeous. I do love how when you use the shoulder strap, the bag can be folded over. The bag goes from beautiful tote, to stylish messenger bag. Either way you choose to carry the handbag, it will look amazing.
If I were to purchase this bag, I definitely wouldn’t use it as an everyday bag. I think this bag would be perfect for when your outfit is on the edgy side. The whole rocker chick look is very trendy right now, and this bag would go amazing with that whole style. A black and white outfit with some edgy heels would compliment this bag well. I just can’t envision someone using this bag while wearing a dress or something colorful.
The Be & D “Garbo Convertible Tote” can be purchased at Saks Fifth Avenue for $1,490. It’s a gorgeous bag, but don’t forget you can get the Michael Kors “Uptown Astor Shoulder Tote” for $458. That’s less than half the price of the Be & D bag. Overall, both bags are stunning and you can’t go wrong with whichever one you choose!
