There are truly endless variations of the Longchamp Le Pliage Tote, a bag renowned for its functionality, practicality and versatility. It’s the ultimate grab-and-go bag for women of all ages, the kind of thing that pays for itself in no time. Sometimes the label offers something a little less expected, like the new Fleurs Palace Velvet Tote. I don’t love velvet on a handbag, but there’s something about this, with its warm rust tones and breezy leaf print, that keeps me interesting. It doesn’t hurt that the bag is so timeless, either. Available for $255 at Nordstrom.
