Real vs. Steal – Céline Bi-Cabas Two-Tone Tote Bag

The sheer simplicity of this tote by Céline is what makes it an absolutely perfect carryall. It’s strong in its construction, yet doesn’t pack the heavy hardware that many of this season’s “It” bags seem to have. It’s chic enough to carry it everywhere from the office to running errands on the weekend. Plus, the neutral colors will go with everything in your wardrobe! If you’re investing in a piece like this, you’ll want it to work well with what you already have. However, if you are like me and prefer the nuance of switching up your accessories, we have a fantastic steal for you below!

Spiegel Colorblocked Tote Bag

Wear this affordable version by Spiegel the same way you would the high-end design above, but keep the option to switch it out for something different if the mood strikes you. It’s clear you’ll get a lot of mileage out of this bag. It will surely look amazing with your skinny jeans and a white button-down just as with a pencil skirt and blouse for your next meeting. Another great thing is you can use it for travel – just fold it neatly into your weekend bag and you’ve instantly got more room for the return trip.
