In “Rest Your Eyes on This,” Commandress takes a mini-vacation to spotlight something that is lovely and delightful – regardless of its practicality or its price.
Well, apparently I’m not the only person who thinks this handbag is gorgeous! I was admiring Tory Burch’s “Metallic Michelle Tote” on a few different websites earlier this week. Now – just a few holiday shopping days later – many of the colors and sizes are sold out!
My favorite version of the Michelle Tote is still in stock at Tory Burch: the Tory Burch Small Metallic Michelle Tote in “Royal Salmon” (shown here) is stunning. I love the handbag’s sleek and classic design, but it’s really the rose gold pebbled leather that had me at hello. The color is beautiful – and one of the many virtues of metallic handbags (and shoes) is that they can be worn as neutrals. I also prefer the smaller version of the tote (11 1/2″H X 10 1/2″L X 6″D) – I accumulate too much stuff when my handbag is larger than this. The Tory Burch Small Metallic Michelle Tote in Royal Salmon is $350 from Tory Burch.
Of course, I would not turn away the standard-sized Metallic Michelle Tote in “Platinum” (shown here), which is 13 1/4″H x 12 1/2″L x 9 1/2″D. I tend to prefer gold tones over silver, but one of the advantages of shiny silver, platinum or pewter leather is that the surface acts like a mirror and picks up the color of whatever you are wearing. The Tory Burch Metallic Michelle Tote in “Platinum” is available from Tory Burch (as well as Saks) for $395.
