As women, we can never have enough handbags, right? Especially not when there are sales! The Emily Tote is currently on sale for 40% off at Chapters Indigo and can be yours for just $27 (reg. $45). It comes in either black or nude. As Chapters Indigo ships all orders over $25 for free, you’re sure to get this tote shipped at no extra charge.
The Emily tote is 100% polyurethane and boasts a full cotton lining. It snaps closed with a lobster-claw and a flap.
Oddly enough, there are two Emily totes in black on Chapters’ website but it looks to be the exact same purse, in the exam same colour. The only difference is that one has zero reviews and the other has 4 reviews. Here’s what one reviewer had to say about it:
I took this bag with me on a recent trip and stuffed it to the limit. I thought it will break with the amount of weight I was carrying in it but it is fine. I like the clasp, it helps to keep things from falling out.
Other reviewers weren’t so happy with it, citing poorly made straps. To me, this looks like a great handbag for running errands or anything else of the sort. It would perhaps even be a great lunch tote but I wouldn’t use it for anything heavier given the reviews on the straps, especially since they are quite narrow to begin with.
As it’s touted to be the perfect “work-to-weekend bag”, it could also be used to store a change of clothes for going from work to a couple of drinks with friends after work.
You can also save on the following other totes:
It’s more than double the price of the Emily tote, but the Park Avenue tote, especially the one in navy & grey is actually worth considering as well as it has a 4.8/5 rating with reviewers gushing over how much they love it!
By the way, if you haven’t already, make sure to read Brooke’s post from this weekend about a 20% discount on LEGO Classic or LEGO City, a promotion that is set to expire this Sunday. It’s a discount not to be missed if you have kids or are shopping for one!
