Hello, please help me choose a tote from one of my shortlist below.

Criteria that went into choosing:
Good for school run, shops, airport
Quietly elegant


namechange20050 Wed 08-Feb-17 15:29:27

The third one. Lovely.

GVmama Wed 08-Feb-17 15:40:39

Second or third for me (second is my favorite)

nannyplumislostinspace Wed 08-Feb-17 17:14:48

Third one is gorgeous. Imho the first one is massively overpriced.

Third one, the second one is too pale and will get manky, well if it were mine it would!

FetchezLaVache Wed 08-Feb-17 17:18:45

The third one.

Third one fits your criteria best, especially the quietly elegant part. Second bag is also lovely, but more fun rather than elegant.

Number 3!
Then 2
Wasn't too keen on the first one

Loyly Wed 08-Feb-17 17:40:28

Third one.

Kirriemuir Wed 08-Feb-17 17:41:50

Third one.

I'm not too keen on any. Second and third too pale and will become manly over time. The first looks plasticky. I'd like the second in tan.

In order of pref. 2, 1, 3

Botanicbaby Wed 08-Feb-17 17:46:33

Agree with everything daisydalrymple said above - choose 3! No 3 is perfect smile

Not keen on 1.

No 2 looks identical to one I have from asos which has worn extremely well & is very comfortable.

Do they have inside pockets?

321zerobaby Wed 08-Feb-17 17:51:50

2 is my favourite. Not keen on the others.

London1975 Wed 08-Feb-17 18:08:29

Wow thanks for the response everyone!

I'm edging closer to 2, after having a bit of an obsession with 1 which has been a bit of a stealth 'it' bag for a while but then I read the reviews and lots were saying how flimsy it felt IRL. For such an expensive bag that's a bit of a deal breaker

I'm edging towards the silver one because I wear lots of black, navy, and white and denim and I think it could look a bit more fun than 3, which is more classic. Plus works in summer and winter.

The silver leather one is by aspinal and at £250 significantly less than the other two. It has zip pockets inside an a navy suede interior. Plus just found out that DH can get a 15% discount through some corporate arrangement. Think I've just talked myself into 2 😀

Number one looks like a Liberty knock off- where's it from?
I hate it when the handles of totes pull the fabric like that, it looks so cheap.
Number 3 from me

London1975 Wed 08-Feb-17 18:46:30

1 is Goyard St. Louis and yes, I agree

Aderyn2016 Wed 08-Feb-17 19:32:42

I like 3 as well. Where is it from? Can you fasten any of these? Because if not, that can be a pita. Suppose you could always get a bag tidy though.

fiorentina Wed 08-Feb-17 20:08:19

Definitely 3 for me.

honeylou42 Wed 08-Feb-17 20:09:09

Third one smile

justwhatineed Wed 08-Feb-17 20:17:15

Number 3 definitely

user1475253854 Wed 08-Feb-17 20:19:11

3 (though I think you've made your decision smile )

ForumUsername Wed 08-Feb-17 20:19:22

2! smile

The saint laurent one. The goyard st louis material chips
