Who doesnâ€™t love options? I was approached by a sales associate at my local Saks outlet and was asked if I had seen their latest arrival, the two-in-one handbag (she must have barely spotted them). I was familiar with the style since a couple of tBFers proudly own the famous City Tote by Foley + Corinna, but I hadnâ€™t experienced what a great style it was in person.
Our friends at ShopBop and their wonderful sales have both the City Tote by Foley + Corinna and the Post Q Tote by Un Apres-Midi de Chien marked down in the sales section (only selected colors on the City Tote). This is just one of the many examples of designer inspirations and competition.
Foley + Corinna with its original design features a zipper up front when expanded and nice pebbled leather, while Apres-Midiâ€™s version consists of bubbly nylon and faux patent leather trim. From pure description itâ€™s quick to note that one style definitely differs in price wise than the other. Both feature double rolled handles, multiple pockets and the handy detachable shoulder straps. Since Iâ€™m not the greatest fan of nylon handbags, my vote goes to the original City Tote. Which is your pick?
Regardless, donâ€™t deny the great sales going on right now over at: Shopbop
