Not all brands can be everything to everyone (no one is perfect, after all) but there are a special few who rarely fail me– one of them being Tod’s. Every season, I buy a Tod’s bag or two and use them to death (I am hard on my things but Tod’s bags take the beating beautifully). This year, I’m yearning for the sunny yellow limited edition D-Styling Bauletto bag ($1,665) issued for the re-opening of Tod’s South Coast Plaza boutique (only 35 made!). Each of these limited bags is embossed with “My Tod’s Special Edition” in the interior. It is exclusive to the South Coast Plaza boutique so you must call them to order (before they sell out!) 714-556-0239.
Not a fan of yellow like I am? Make like SJP and grab yourself the large Tod’s tote in white leather. Don’t worry about getting it dirty– if SJP can tote hers in the rain, to the park, WITH an eight year old boy, why should you worry about a little stain? I own a Tod’s Rodeo bag from 2002 in white leather and it is still in pristine condition (and you thought I was kidding about being a Tod’s fanatic– I remember every single Tod’s bag purchase and the year it was made). The sumptuous skins used by Tod’s is sturdy and cleans easily, even in white.
The Large Tote in White Leather retails for $1,400 at Saks Fifth Avenue
Tell me, which one do you prefer?
