Kate Spade Women's Charlottesville Malea Tote, Handbag of the Day
You might call this a "safe" tote, which makes it an excellent investment piece. Made from smooth, shiny cowhide (or so they say, but have you ever seen a green cow? I didn't think so.)(Yes, I'm kidding.), the bag has simple lines, charming tassels, and gold-toned hardware.
The perforated details and subtle Kate Spade namestamp keep this functional bag feminine. The 13.75"W x 10.25"H x 5.25"D bag also has a floral lining, complementing the grassy shade of the luxurious cowhide.
The Kate Spade Women's Charlottesville Malea Tote is available from Bloomingdales for $395.
