I've been admiring Clare Vivier bags for awhile now but just can't bring myself to spend the money that comes along with owning one. The brown leather is perfectly aged looking with its simple style, great quality and every kind of size one might need. To appease my need for one, I purchased the transport tote from Madewell after using about three different discount codes and waiting six months before pulling the trigger. The bag is similar to her tote below but only sets you back $168 as opposed to $409 and I pair it with most things I wear. Hopefully these less expensive options offer some inspiration because the timelessness of a great brown leather bag means it goes with anything and it's a must-have staple in any closet.
