Tory Burch Lip Tote
Now here’s a fun and unexpectedly different bag! No, I didn’t find this at my local thrift shop; it’s actually a piece by a well-known American fashion designer whose known for her chic bohemian style. Meet the Lip Tote, no… not by Betsey Johnson, but by Tory Burch instead! What a great name for the bag, don’t ya’ll agree? Magenta hued suede lines the body of the bag, and sparkling crystals form an oversized figure of lips! Seriously, would any of you gals wear this? Unless you seek to be the envy of preteens, or if you’re the age of twelve I can’t picture any true Bagista’s sporting this tote. Is this piece horrible? Not really. It’s definitely eye-catching, but I feel like I could totally design a similar version of this tote at home using cellphone “bling” and a hot glue gun! Just in case you are interested in this extra-girly retro piece, you can find it over at Saks (dot com), but I must warn you fanatics, the Lip Tote does carry a steep price tag of $375! Love the tote but hate the price? I suggest you wait until it lands in the clearance section, or you can express your inner creativity and Do-It-Yourself at home.
