While I love my little clutches and cross-body carriers, my everyday bag of choice is almost always a tote. Since I can’t seem to make it out the door without an iPad, my notebook, a lipstick (or two), chargers and a myriad of other things that I’ve somehow convinced myself I “need” with me at all times, a larger carryall is really the only practical option.
With that in mind, I’m always on the lookout for new totes to love. My latest favorite: Truss. Not only are these killer carryalls super cute, but they’re incredibly durable, too. While most woven bags can’t handle much of a load, my Truss tote shows no signs of breakage, no matter how many things I stash away in there. The bags come in three sizes: mini, medium, and large. I really love the little pink mini, but I’m partial to my larger size because it works as my daily carryall (the black-and-white combo goes with everything), but it’s also a great size for a weekend-getaway bag. Bonus: a portion of every single purchase of one of these Oaxacan-made bags goes to support the development of local communities there. It doesn’t get much better than that.
