A Cool New Way to Carry a Tote

Can you teach an old bag new tricks?

We picked up a brilliant styling tip from the spring 2012 runway of Sportmax via a recent issue of Lucky magazine.

The idea is to take an oversized tote bag, fold it in half and then carry it, handles down. Voila — a daytime clutch!

As we experimented with this idea, we discovered that you can’t put too much stuff into the bag and it must zip across the top.

We have a few bags that would be perfect for this bag makeover from Jil Sander, Lana Marks (so perfect with fabric in the center), Jimmy Choo and Prada.
