Recently, I found the perfect bag! It's the signature City Tote from Foley+Corinna, which was designed with a smart "mix of sophistication, fun and function." For a tote, it is compact; roomy, yet looks and wears more like a purse.
The bag has strong, smooth double handles (to fit your shoulder); a detachable adjustable crossbody strap (which I like to use). The interior has a durable polyester lining; 2 smartphone pockets and a zip pocket. The outside of the bag is a foldover design with a 3rd wide zip pocket.
The Foley+Corinna Mid City Crossbody bag is available in vintage leather. However, I bought it in polyurethane, also called "liberated leatherTM." It costs a third less than geniune leather, but looks remarkable: substantial just like real leather. It is my 1st "liberated leatherTM" bag ever. (Can a person tell the difference between liberated leatherTM and animal hide leather, you may ask? Yes ... but only if she looks for it. It feels slightly different.) To the naked eye, it looks like an expensive bag!
On Friday night, I went to the New York City Ballet, carrying my new tote. I went with it folded over. After the performance I stuffed my program booklet, a windbreaker and silk scarf neatly inside to return home. The night was too warm to wear them.
It is no surprise that this bag is designed by 2 women for women because they got it right! I love my new bag!!👛
