And let me tell you about my new bag. No, it’s not the Campo bag – I can’t justify that one without at least some % off. I hemmed and hawed about this purchase but actually swung by JC the day before we left to get this tote. I haven’t seen it online (thus using dupes in Polyvore). It is like the Metallic Market Tote ($125, #17861), but it is coated canvas. I got it in SAM - Soft Amber? I didn’t see it on Gigi’s color abbreviation key. Maybe it’s retail only? So I will dub it the Coated Canvas Market Tote ($68, #17138 – I think). The store also had it in - and this is my guess on the colors, since I didn’t look at the other tags – shell, and dark mushroom/khaki.
I love this tote. Clearly, I must since I was at the store purchasing it the day I was packing. To be fair, I had all of our clothes laid out on the bed, waiting for 1 more load of laundry, so I was doing well. And I had an exchange to do at GapKids since I underestimated E’s height again. (dang, that girl is getting tall, just like her brother!) So anyway, to quote from the website’s description of the metallic market tote (which says it’s online only, but I saw both metallic colors at Montgomery Mall):
Cotton canvas handles with leather detailing. Top interior snap closure with leather trim. Interior front-wall hanging patch pocket. Unlined. Import. 8" handle drop. 12 1/2"H x 19 3/4"W at top, 10 1/2"W at base x 8 1/2"D.
The only difference I can find is that my tote has 2 interior pockets – 1 open pocket and 1 zip pocket – Love my pockets. But I think all the other info is the same. Interior pic at left. I love the colors of this tote. It’s perfect for now at the beach – well, color & weight & capacity. But I think I can carry this color right through November since it’s so muted. And canvas is so much lighter than leather, so it’s a nice break for my shoulders.
