Aaah! I'm resting now. I'm very tired from taking care of 2 kids, a husband and a home all day. To rest and relax I go on tPF (of course) and shop on ebay for deals. So now I need to reward myself. Please help me decide between these bags. I know the shoulder tote is an older style but I have a 3 year old and 6 month old (big bag is good). I have 3 leather ali's (black/brown/whiskey) so I obviously love the ali style. What to do?

Hmmm. For summer I would probably choose the white tote. It's so classy looking but still very kick-around too. Maybe get a little multi-colored flower charm to go with it for some fun color. The other bag is more autumn I think.

actually I prefer the Ali but if you already have 3 maybe you want something different? :shrugs: They are 2 completely different styles.. what are you looking for in a bag right now? Good Luck! :tup:

As much as I love Ali, I think of the particular bags you posted, the white tote is a better summer bag. What about a white Ali? Either the white leather or khaki sig with white...

Thanks for all the suggestions. I think I'm leaning towards the white tote just because it's different. I hope it's comfortable on the shoulder. I like the idea of adding a colourful charm/scarf to brighten it up. I'm looking for a bag that's low maintenance, inexpensive and not black/brown (have too many of those). I know I can get the tote for a cheaper price versus the ali and i've done too much shopping on Coach bags already. Do you know if jean colour will transfer on to pebble leather like vintage leather?

I think that is a great choice! :tup: The fact that you already have 3 ali's seems like it would be fun to get something else... I have tried on that shoulder tote and it seemed REALLY nice and light :okay:

I definitely would go for the white bag! You already have 3 Alis, so why not get something different?! And as you said, you can always add color with charms and scarves!

I have a shoulder tote in camel and it is very light and easy to carry on the shoulder. I love it! I cant wait for the snow to melt here and for it to look like spring and then I am switching to that!

I like the white tote, too.

I had that same Ali for about 6 hours, I tried to love it, but she just wasn't for me. She went back and I got something that I didn't have to try to love. The white would be nice, though, but if you already have a few, maybe the tote is the way to go, with a charm or scarf!
