I Love: The Prada Tote According to The Little Black List’s Tess

After years of dressing as what some would call "crazy," I started chronicling my fashion and social life in blog entries, writing about fashion, dating, building a career, shopping, love, and living in New York City. Each entry includes photographs detailing my daily style: Vintage clothing, so many sequins, tulle petticoats, rings and necklaces galore, not to mention bracelets and rhinestones stacked on quite liberally. My site quickly turned from a hobby to a popular platform where the like-minded and the fashion-oriented can gather to view, comment, and contribute, thus leading to amazing collaborations. This has created a jam-packed schedule, which has led me to rely on meticulous organization in—most importantly—my handbag . I came across this
Prada tote
, and loved it at first sight. I knew without a doubt that the
delicious cherry-red leather and sleek silhouette
could compliment even the craziest of outfits that I dare wear. The size and structure allowed me to carry all the necessities: Planner, digital SLR camera, Chapstick, wallet, business cards and holder, and phone, while still providing room for impulse purchases of magazines, newspapers, or anything else I may come across. After doing a little research, I found that not only was the tote practically perfect for me, but a portion of the profits go to helping
Runway to Green
an environmental initiative. Fashion, functionality, and environmentally friendly—what more could I ask for?
