.. my momma's birthday ..

My mom's birthday is coming up on Tuesday, May 18th, but we also wanted to take her out on the weekend. So, yesterday, we all had dinner as a family, and ate the best Mango cake! So soft and fluffy, and the mango custard inside was delicious.

I wanted to share with you one of the gifts that we got her...

It's the Longchamp Roseau Crocodile-Embossed Leather Tote. I went ahead and got the large size (14"x10.25"x4.25") at Bloomingdale's, and I'm happy with my choice. They have a smaller tote of the same model, which wasn't displayed at their store, but I did check online later and that's the only model available there. I was worried that the large would be too large for my tiny mom, but it's perfect! Plus, who doesn't want a large bag to fit all their crap in. The greatest thing about this bag, is that it so epitomizes what my mom likes!! It's classic, elegant, versatile, and beautifully handcrafted. It's also incredibly light, which is a huge plus for her. She doesn't like bags with a lot of hardware or fuss, so my eyes lit up when I saw this. Yay!!

P.S. | I'd recommend this tote to anyone. It's big without being bulky, and it's such a classic. A great everyday bag that can certainly transition to night. When I tested it out around the shop, I felt powerful, bold (in an understated way), refined, and very Parisian!
