A coated tote bag is so handy – you can fill it up with your essentials, sling it over your shoulder – and you’re good to go! Two of the most popular totes include the LV Neverfull and the Goyard St Louis – but they’re each priced well over $1k.

If you’re looking for a customizable tote bag with similar dimensions, but you want to spend less – you should definitely check out the Barrington Gifts St Anne Tote. It is super cute and costs $165 (2023 update: $200).
I love how easy it is to create a unique bag that reflects your taste – they have so many different fabric patterns, monogram options and leather trims to choose from. I went with the Pink Geometric pattern from their Spring 2017 collection, paired with a Geranium stripe and British Tan leather trim. This bag was definitely made for me!
The St Anne Tote is a great choice as a work bag, diaper bag or even a gym or beach bag – but I plan on using mine for travel. It’s the perfect size to fit in my handbag, blanket scarf, reading material and some snacks.
I think these bags would also be an amazing gift for someone special – they’re a lovely combination of function and beauty! (p.s. Secret Tip – if you’re looking to design a bag similar to the LV Neverfull in Damier Ebene, choose the “Chequers Collection” fabric – while the “Geometric” pattern resembles Goyard’s design. Also – the Spring 2017 selection has my favourite prints – so many pretty pink options)
