The Best Tote at NYFW February 2016

Love this whole look. Photo by YoungJun Koo.

This was one of the only looks I liked from the recent New York Fashion Week. I kept looking through the street style photos of YoungJun Koo, who works for New York Magazine, but so many of the outfits are so silly or fake that I was happy to see this one. It looks as though this gal is wearing items she actually owns and I loved this entire ensemble, from the coat, to the buttons on the coat, to her jewelry, sunglasses, and manicure. I am especially crazy for her animal print tote! If you know who makes it let me know in the comments.

All in the details: Love the coat, buttons, dark manicure, and tote.

Let this look be your friendly reminder that March’s “How I Wear My” is devoted to the tote so pull out your favorite one and send us a photo of how you style and carry it! Forward pictures to Adrienne and me at howiwearmy@yahoo.com by February 29, 2016.

Even though I don't love my tote like my other bags - its the one i use all the time. I do try and use my other bags but maybe it's my age but I do want comfort and also in this day of plastic bags I don't want to buy or use a plastic bag! Will see if I can do a pic to send in this month Jill x

The tote is Celine! I looked at it longingly and tried it on... A superb tote but it doesn't fit my shoulder. It kept falling off. But goodness how beautiful.

Hi Naomi, I hear you re totes, I don't know if I love them like my other bags but they sure are handy, aren't they? I am trying to not use plastic bags at all and I'm so glad NYC adopted a recycling bin at stores for everyone to recycle their old plastic bags.

Would love it if you joined us this month and btw I am loving your IG pictures of the Debo Sotheby's auction! And do not get me started on your Kelly because there will be weeping! xx

Catherine is that you? How are you my dear?!? I hope all is well with you. I miss you! Thank you for ID'ing the tote, I don't know if I would've guessed it was Celine. It is gorgeous! And this woman carries it so well. If you haven't seen the Vigee Le Brun show at the Met, I think you need to! xx

Jill, Love this whole look as well! The coat and buttons are so fun and so is the tote.. Couldn't agree more this is a look that's real not contrived like so many are at NYFW!! x Kim

I'm in love with this tote. Going to have to try it on.....uh oh.

Jill said...

Hi Kim, how are you?!? Yeah, don't you get tired of the contrived looks at the fashion weeks? It makes me love Emmanuelle Alt even more, I can understand why she goes in for a pared down look. I think she realizes fashion week is supposed to be a trade event, not a sidewalk parade! xx

Hi Kathy! If you try this Celine beauty on, GET PICTURES! I want to see! I don't know the price of it but it seems like one of those totes that could live forever and never go out of style! xx
