Car Shoe Large Side Pocket Tote


While I continue my quest to find more affordable designer handbags, I find myself charting unfamiliar territory. Perhaps this is a good thing because I may have overlooked quite a jem as a result. The jem I am referring to is Car Shoe. This brand, which has been around for 45 years and became part of Prada in 2001, is responsible for the rubber-soled nub flats we're so fond of seeing in the shoe department. To tell you the truth, I much prefer the Car Shoe brand of bags to what Prada has been peddling this past year. Their bags are only slightly less expensive, but we'll take what we can get, right?

The Large Side Pocket Tote is made from deerskin leather so it's definitely a top quality bag. There are no bells or whistles on this one, ladies. What you see is what you get. It's practical yet very chic. The buckled top handles and clever flap side pockets provide enough interesting design elements to keep this tote from becoming completely boring. I don't have the exact dimensions on this bag, but you can bet it's large enough to qualify as a true tote. I'm not crazy about the metal logo tag, but it's removable so you can get rid of it altogether. The Car Shoe Large Side Pocket Tote is available in grafite which is apparently a brown/grey combination that will fit into almost any wardrobe.
