I would like to introduce you ladies to a designer named Elie Tahari. He is famous for his luxury ready-to-wear line and has been in the business of fashion since the 1970′s. It wasn’t until recently, however, that the New York-based designer added handbags to his collection. His designs are very modern and sophisticated, while still maintaining a sense of timelessness about them. Up until this point though, Elie Tahari bags didn’t really call to me. Perhaps they just don’t stand out enough? I don’t know. But all that flew out the window when my eyes landed on the Elie Tahari Mira Pleated Leather Tote.
