I'm torn between 2 bags:

1. Gallery signature tote

2. Large Signature Stripe tote:

I want a tote...a big tote since I carry a lot of stuff. I want to carry it now. Is the second one more casual, like a shorts/T kind of bag? If you own either, what are your favorites and dislikes about them? Priscilla, my bestest shopping friend, and I can't decide which one I should buy! LOL!
I'm leaning towards #2 but only for the fact that it looks like I could wear it dressed up or dressed down...???

TIA!

I don't own either one, but I vote for the large signature stripe tote! I agree that you can dress it up or down.

I say the signature stripe tote. I have it in denim and it fits a lot of stuff in it when I use it for work.

I like the gallery signature tote. I don't own either bags, but I thinkt the gallery tote could dress up a casual outfit and go well with most dressed up or put together outfits.

I like the signature stripe tote better, but if you are leaning toward the gallery tote, I saw a lot of them at the Grove City outlet last Saturday in a variety of colors. I can't remember how much they were, though. Thought you might want to know - I see you're also from Pittsburgh!

OMG, I called up there today to ask if they had any signature stripe totes and she said no. I never thought to ask about the Gallery totes...ok, might have to call again! :smile: Thank you. I wonder how much they are! It might be way cheaper than the auction and then I can buy a wallet to match! LOL!

Thanks again!

ok, I just talked to the outlet. She said they don't have any signature gallery totes but they do have all leather ones. She said she is pretty sure she has red, brown and possibly a black floating around. She said she has a wider large tote for $359.99 plus an additional 20% off and a taller tote at $229.99 plus an additional 20% off. hmmm....I like the signature but now I'm going to have to look to see what the leather looks like and to try and figure out the sizing she's talking about. Me thinks I'll be taking a drive on Monday!!!

Thanks for all your help...I'm still no where near figuring out what to do, lol! I did check out matching signature wallets in case I go that route. :smile:
