Obsession of the Day: Lanvin Beaded Evening Tote

I have a confession to make: I rarely leave the house in the shoes I’ll be wearing all night. Usually, I have on flats/flip-flops/thong sandals and I carry my heels. I find that my feet hurt exponentially less and later when I feel that I want to put on my flat shoes, I already have a pair.

The issue is usually that if I’m going to an evening event, I’ve got to carry a clutch that’s large enough to house my little shoe secret. Rarely can an evening bag come in a size that makes this easy and stylish…until now.

Excuse me while I kiss the sky. This silk mini tote has embroidered glass beading with tulle overlay and gorgeous double chain-and-grosgrain-ribbon handles. The side panels are also grosgrain and the trim is layered satin ribbon. It’s fully lined and it’s ready to turn any look into a spectacular nighttime ensemble.

So it doesn’t even matter if you know my secret. If I’m carrying a bag this beautiful, you’re not even really looking at my feet, are you?

    Great thinking!! I do the same thing. This bag is goooorgeous. Have you found anything similar that’s a bit better-priced?

      I think Coach does some great totes with pizazz and if you’re looking for something that’s really competitively priced, I always love to shop TJ Maxx for great finds.
