The elusive Jet Set Zip Top Tote (LV Totally inspired)

  1. I've been on the hunt for this bag for months. MK stores, eBay, dept stores, everywhere. I saw it maybe a year ago and then it disappeared to be replaced by the open top with middle compartment which didn't do it for me. I called the brand new Factory Store in the Carousel Mall in Syracuse and they described this bag to me and I still didn't believe it existed. I did the 3 hour drive from Ottawa yesterday and there it was. They had a special on for 20% off a $250 purchase so I picked up the matching wristlet as well as was out the door at $228.

    In case anyone is wondering how this differs from the Macy's Exclusive, it's a bit bigger and has the lighter handles (the Macy's has luggage color handles). I actually like the lighter handles because it looks more like the Totally. It's also more functional than the Totally - the inside has 4 slip pockets and and huge zip pocket in the side. The Macy's Exclusive is $248, this one was $198.

    I love that the monogram on this is so muted and not at all in-your-face.

  2. The dimensions are 12 inches high x 16 inches wide (at the top). The strap drop is about 10 inches.

  3. I love the muted monogram as well. I was very anti-monogram anything until I got different tote with the same print. MK also is excellent because of all the pockets he put in the bags :smile: One for a phone, one for my camera, one for my lipgloss, etc LOL.

    Congrats on finding your elusive bag!
     
  4. That's awesome it looks identical to the one Macy's sells. Any modeling pictures ?
     
  5. I'll do some later for sure when I'm showered and dressed!
     
  6. I'm just over 5 feet tall, size 6-8.

  7. I love it! It looks taller than the one I have, the one with just the center zipper pocket. Are these just available at the outlets?
     
  8. Crissy- It looks fantastic on you.
     
  9. It probably isn't - my camera stretches things when I take a pic vertically instead of horizontally.
     
  10. Looks really cute:smile:
     
  11. We are about the same height! The bag looks good on you.
     
  12. Great tote I love it! I have the mono Hamilton from the outlet. Both are great bags. I need to get the matching wallet next.
     
  13. Gorgeous! I didn't know that this one existed!
     
  14. I saw some of those at Macy's today :smile:
     
  15. Nice! I love zip top totes!
