Dream Ticket: A Peppered Pony Tote That Plucks At Our Heartstrings

We don't often commit to big-ticket purchases on impulse. But when you find the one, it's really way too hard to settle for less. In this case, it's the Alexander McQueen tote that stole our hearts (and possibly a whole chunk of our bank accounts). This is not just any carryall that we'll stuff full of newspapers, our iPad, and an afternoon snack. This is a prime example of a big investment piece for decades of serious style. The De-manta tote may be fairly simple in shape, but we fell hard for the drama in the details—the classic black-and-white pony print, and the folded flaps that hug a short top-handle, and a wide, exposed-zipper opening are all mega-charming. Paychecks will come and go, but prized handbag like this will rotate in our wardrobe forever.
Alexander McQueen Peppered Pony De-Manta Tote, $2,595, available at Alexander McQueen.
