A Touch of Paris (Longchamp Limited Edition Galeries Lafayette 2010)

In my "What's in my (work) bag?" post, I mentioned this limited edition Longchamp Galeries Lafayette 2010 Le Pliage tote that I picked up in Paris this summer. I was immediately drawn to its unique design, which pays tribute to the iconic dome architecture of Galeries Lafayette, one of Paris' premier department stores. This tote is one of the more special bags in my collection because just looking at it reminds me of all the great memories from my European vacation (which now feels like it happened forever ago).

To add a bit more "Paris" to my winter outerwear, I also decided to throw on the new angora beret that I recently won from Olivia at Stylestruck and Barefoot Contessa. The bow detailing is so cute!

  2. Love having pieces like that that transport you to somewhere else! When I lived in France I collected quite a few little trinkets that immediately remind me of my time there. Absolutely lovin that bag, it's such a unique and chic design, love the way you incorporated it into this look and let it take centre stage!

  5. I love your Pliage! I've been contemplating on getting one for months, but could never justify the price tag for a nylon tote. They do look very spacious and convenient though :)

  29. Oh my goodness, how have I never seen that Longchamp tote before?? I loved the Eiffel Tower version, but this one is so much more special because not everyone would actually know what the design was. It's absolutely stunning, and I love that it matches your adorable new beret. So very Parisian!
