tory burch nylon ella tote

After three months, my long-awaited Tory Burch Nylon Ella tote in Butterfly Pink finally fluttered home courtesy of my Los Angeles-based cousin Ivy Ortuoste.

And it is all I dreamed it would be – except much, much bigger than I thought. This bag is ENORMOUS. It can fit everything you can possibly want to bring around for a day. It’s even large enough to be a weekender bag!

The trim is leather – handles, medallion, and corner reinforcements.

The material of the bag itself is nylon in a wonderful “look at me” shade of hot pink.

Side snaps allow you to reduce the bag to a manageable size; it then takes a pleasing triangular shape.

Behold its cavernous interior! It can accommodate legal-size ¬†documents, how’s that for a working bag? It has two pockets for cellphone/PDA, and a large zippered pocket for valuables.

That’s Ivy (carrying a Louis Vuitton Palermo) on her visit to Manila last June 3; me with my new TB Ella tote; and my wondrous offspring Ik and Alex (toting a Kipling messenger bag).

As you can see from the ‘carry’ picture above, the Ella tote is capacious and cheerful in its pinkness. It’s a great bag for work and weekend in terms ¬†of function and style.

It is no longer available at the Tory Burch website, but they have many new designs.
