Coffee Break: Tall Story Tote


The Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale has started, and as always it’s taking me longer than anticipated to round it up… so in the meantime, here’s a little taste for today’s Coffee Break: this fun red tote from Alexander McQueen! I like the way it feels oversized since the details feel like they belong on a much smaller bag. It seems like it would be a great size for a commute to work with papers, folders and more.

The bag is available at $1554-$2890 in various colors; the pictured bag is $1734.
