So I decided I wanted a new tote / purse. I went on a mad hunt - and I mean it - I looked everywhere I could think of. I finally decided that everything was too expensive (in the $100 range or higher) and I just wanted something plain. I settled on a solid gray canvas tote from LLBean. However... for some reason, LLBean's bags don't come in gray. I decided that if I couldn't have a solid gray canvas tote, I wanted one of the Le Pliage bags by Longchamp. Out of my price range.. of course. The solution : I went on ebay and bought this little gem - the Le Pliage Medium in off-white. I think we'll get along just fine.
