Hello Fall with Aubergine!
We are super excited to have a BAG to give away in this month of October! We are not just giving away any old bag, we are giving away a leather Kate Spade Foster Court Tasha Tote in Aubergine.
Tote it All
First off, the tote is the perfect catch all, carry all bag. I’ve been lugging my Mac Pro laptop with me everywhere and have had a hard time putting it in my current bag, but no problem with this Kate Spade tote.
Any tote is versatile, chic and most importantly functional. If you are anything like me, the bigger the bag, the better to carry all my stuff with me! Thank goodness I don’t live in New York or San Francisco where I’d have to lug the bag with me on my persons. I can carry all I want and drive to everywhere, with little burden of carrying the heavy weighted bag. However, for those you who live in a more cosmopolitan area and need to carry all that you need in your bag, this is perfect!
I love a huge open tote that you can carry bags inside bags for security and organization. This Kate Spade bag has structure, as it is made with heavy weight leather. It stands on its own and won’t fall down.
It’s the perfect size with a base measurement of 4 by 10 inches (10 by 25 cm). The tote handles are long enough to carry over the shoulders easily or to carry like a top handle.
- Width (@ top): 13 inches (33 cm)
- Height: 10 inches (25 cm)
- Depth (@ base) : 4 inches (10 cm)
- Handle Drop: 7 inches (18 cm)
All in the Trend
This bag is very similar to the Nordstrom tote and the more expensive Madewell Leather Tote. Much like the Nordstrom tote, the sewing is all on the exterior leaving the inside clean from any edging. The nice rose pink interior is a great contrast to the dark purple exterior and a great color pairing.
Aubergine is a very fancy word for the color eggplant, which is a very deep purple. The color is associated with royalty, mysticism and the perfect color to transition to fall.
It’s all in the Details
The tote is a two tone bag with aubergine on the outside and pink rose interior. The Kate Spade logo in located in two places; bottom front and inside pocket in gold.
The inside pocket has two pockets in one- a zippered pocket for security as well as an open pocket for easy accessibility for a phone.
Also the bag has an embellishment. It comes with two tassels attached. One longer aubergine and shorter rose colored tassel made of the same leather. It’s a nice tie in to the two color tones and the paler rose tassel is a great pop of color complementing the dark eggplant color.
And the Winner Is…
