First, haircut!! yay!! it was getting so long…
Second, fingers crossed, I think yesterday was the last cold day for a while. It was maybe a little too cold for this jacket unzipped, but zipped, it was good. And anyway, I’ve had enough of sweaters…now, here’s hoping for some sun.
Third, yes, this is the MM6 tote I featured in my “Dreaming of Spring” post. I got it with some remaining credits from Forzieri because I just couldn’t get it out of my mind. In real life, I haven’t carried it much yet, just out for a bit yesterday, but I think it will be pretty perfect for what I wanted: a lightweight, packable, mostly-for-travel tote that I don’t have to worry about.
It’s very basic, and a nice, thicker (neoprene) perforated fabric instead of leather. It does seem to keep it’s shape rather well, in spite of being so slouchy, and will hold my laptop, etc., easily. It’s not as comfortable to carry on my shoulder as I’d hoped, so it’s better carried by hand, but I can live with that. For a fabric tote bag, this one is very well made, and interesting. There’s only one pocket inside, which is good for phone & keys or lip balm, and that’s pretty much it.
I’ll do a more thorough review another time, after I’ve carried it longer, but at first glance I love it. It’s also available in a nice royal blue for those of you who like pops of color here and there. Of course, I do not, so…
