Little Things-The Classic Handbag (1)

I've always dreamed of owning a Prada tote. When I accepted my first full-time job offer a little over two years ago, I knew that asides from paying off my tuition debt, one (it was two) of my paycheques will go towards purchasing the Prada Saffiano Lux tote as a way to treat myself after successfully completing 20 years of school. It was the largest purchase I have ever made, but it felt gratifying to reward myself after too many sleepless school nights reading textbooks, countless trips to cubicles of McMaster's Innis Library and consuming way too much jasmine green tea. It was a bag that I could call my own, earned all on my own.

When RueLaLa released their style guide for handbags, it inspired me to share my favorite handbag and what I keep inside. I had one particular bag in mind and it was a tote. The Prada Saffiano Lux tote is beautifully structured made from soft leather and has ample room for all of my weekend essentials.
