Some of my favorite brands that are tried and true for fantastic quality, colors, design, comfort, and style are Furla, Fossil, Coach and Cole Haan (Coach and Cole Haan can run a bit high depending on the bag, but that's why I love discount sites like RueLaLa and Gilt and stores like TJ Maxx). After today, however, I can add a new designer to this repertoire: Elliott Lucca.
I also love Nordstrom. Nordstrom and I are good friends, and it hardly ever lets me down. Today was no exception when I was walking through the Old Orchard mall in Skokie, IL (holler, anyone?) and saw this lovely staring at me from the sale bin. It was one of those "I have to have it...now" moments:

And the coolest of all...
It's a convertible, Portobello colored leather tote bag. Its a great neutral brown/grey color that will go with everything, and is I don't have any bag like it in my closet: these were my justifications for wanting to buy it. But the cincher? The price. The Elliott Lucca website says that it is originally priced at $268. Nordstrom's sale price? $98. Booyah.
I love this bag because its versatile, comfortable, affordable and goes with tons of things in my closet. I rounded out my day by buying a badass AllClad cooking pot set for $150 that was originally priced at $450. Booyah. I'm also a firm believer in quality cookware: if you invest and take care of it, it will last you your lifetime. Thanks for the tip, Mom. ;)
