I live in Mexico and TOUS is a big status item down here. The rich and the beautiful carry TOUS. There is a great TOUS shop in Cancun. Jewelry and all sorts of accessories. I personally have never liked the handbags, but the jewelry is lovely. I have a TOUS umbrella too.
Arrgh. Sadly, as TropicalGal put it, they are the next big thing here. Lately everyone's carrying one. And I hate them!! It's like they're trying to make them the next It bag and is so not going to happen. I'm sorry to the fans, I don't mean to offend you. I just personally dislike these bags. A hug.
