I couldn’t help but notice a few days ago that the Pick of The Day on was this silver “paper bag” tote by Lanvin. Coming in at a cool $1,641 it actually makes our Laguna Shimmer tote look like a steal.

I don’t know about you, but I love that metallics have for the most part replaced the tired beige bag for this season’s neutral. Silver leather is surprisingly versatile, it goes with everything from jeans to dresses and I’m excited to announce that we’ve updated our entire silver Laguna Shimmer line with pale pink lining for fall! I should have photos of the new version soon.

I wish I had an excuse to upgrade to the new pink lined tote. I feel like I deserve it as I’ve logged in plenty of miles with this bag already {it went to snowy London and Luxemburg with me last year} but after a minor stint in rehab it’s as good as new.

Do you have a favorite neutral bag in mind for fall?

Your Laguna Tote looks better than the Lanvin one. Silver is perfect for this summer too.

Ohhh love metallics and the size and shape of the bag is perfect. I would way rather have the Laguna Shimmer, the price of Lanvin is crazy!! Wishing you a wonderful weekend hun!

I really love metallic colours and have been meaning to get a bag like this. It’s the perfect transition piece for me.

Silver! I love it. I do also like yellow as my summer neutral bag.

I do love Lanvin, bur your tote is much more polished! Metallics can definitely serve as a neutral and go with everything!

Wow, and it kind of looks papery too, which actually translates as tired to me. Your is much prettier and looks sturdier which after all is what totes are about?

I actually think your Laguna Shimmer tote is prettier than the Lanvin one Mary Jo! And it sounds even better with a pink lining 🙂

Silver is the perfect replacement for beige as a neutral. I love it!! Your bag is definitely a steal, I like yours as it doesn’t look all wrinkled, haha. But, silver is so cool :))) I hope you have a gorgeous weekend doll xx

I love silver and metalic things and this bag is beautiful. But i have to admit, i don’t have anything in that colour in my closet. I should rectify that.
