We’ve all experienced shopping for the perfect bag. Whether it’s a new work bag or the perfect everyday tote, the task is always easier said than done. For most, the everyday tote is more than just a bag carrying every gizmo and gadget we own. In fact, our everyday tote is the purest form of self-expression and a signature of our style. The right tote will speak volumes as to who we are as a fashion lover and convey our signature style, without ever actually speaking a word. Powerful, right?

Of course, with so much riding on one single tote, it’s only natural for a shopper to begin second-guessing themselves. We’re only human, after all! But a signature tote should be just that — our signature style in tote form. There is simply no need to redefine what we like and replace it with what we think we should like. Instead, how about a simple but high-quality tote to remain true to our traditional style with an added touch of trendiness?

The OAD New York Tall Carryall Pebbled Leather is the trendy touch to our otherwise traditional and true style. With its minimalist styling and gleaming hardware, this bag brings endless versatility and styling options. Featured with a removable pouch, the spacious pebbled-leather tote is nothing short of classic and chic.

It was only a matter of time until we realized we weren’t the only ones lusting over this bag because the reviewers are, too!

The simplicity of this signature style did not go unnoticed with reviewers. One reviewer could not stop raving over this timeless tote which added a hint of trendy to her otherwise traditional style.

Other reviewers pointed out that this bag was not only ideal, but it was also the ideal size. Not only was it the perfect fit, everything fit into it perfectly, too. Other reviewers said it was perfect for not only everyday essentials, but is roomy enough to stuff an extra book or two or even an iPad in! We love how this bag doesn’t just compliment outfits, but actually compliments everyday life! It’s so rare these days!

Another reviewer raved about how this bag was the perfect fit for their frame, too. When opting for the most suitable style, we are so lost in finding a design to fit our day-to-day life that we often overlook finding a bag that actually fits our frame. We cannot express how much we love that this reviewer pointed out that this medium-sized tote paired perfectly with a petite frame! This lightweight tote was not only comfortable to carry by its handles but also was comfortable when worn on the shoulders. The reviewer loved that this powerful tote did everything but overpower. Truthfully, we would of never even thought to take these factors into account, but we love that this reviewer did!

This signature tote is featured in three highly transitional shades including bordeaux, sage and light camel. Surely, when selecting from any shade within this trifecta, there is no wrong way to go about it.

For those fashion lovers who gravitate towards more rich and luxurious colors, we’d recommend the bordeaux. The rich red features hints of burgundy throughout and is nothing short of stunning. Of course, this shade would be ideal during the fall and winter months when paired with leather leggings, little black booties and oversized sweaters. This shade just exudes elegance!

We get it, rich colors may not be a personal preference. No problem! We’d go ahead and recommend the kiwi-green shade, sage. The bold color will instantly brighten up any outfit instantly. Within seconds it will elevate even the most basic pair of white tees, leggings and all-white sneakers. While this stylish sage shade would be ideal for our weekend wardrobe, we’d even go as far as to recommend pairing it with a monochromatic look. From grey suede booties to oversized grey sweaters, it will be nothing short of divine!

Lastly, the light camel color is ideal for those looking to remain true to the classic style. Pair this tote to perfection with a white button-up shirt and light wash pair of denim. We love!
