We are on the go all the time.  We don’t have time to think about what handbag and shoes we need to bring to the office if we have a date or have to attend an important function after work.

With the invention of the tote, we can pack all of our toiletries and accessories the night before we go to the office.  In the morning, we can grab it and be out the door.

DAY: For the fall/winter season, Alexander McQueen’s leather chain linked strap bucket tote is the perfect day bag as it versatile, stylish, and practical.  You can pair it with a dress suit or pantsuit or a pair of jeans and a blazer.
