Can you tell we are a wee-bit obsessed with tote bags? The way we see it, suburbanites have their cars as status symbols and junk-holders, city-dwellers with bad backs (like us) have their tote bags.
And speaking of seeing it, check out the new Lands’ End clear plastic version of their classic tote bag. We love the black-trimmed version for the beach (or any time you want to show off the contents of your bag). Also comes in patterned-plastic with colored handles. Obviously, no monogramming.
Lands’ End Beach Living Plastic Tote, $49
The Lands’ End shop at Sears has the clear tote for just $39!
