OK, the weather is just pissing me off. I thought it was established that we were well into Summer (or at least Spring) and then the weather turns on us and it is now windy and freezing ass cold. I want to go to the pool and use totes like this (went to the pool this weekend and almost got sick from trying to brave the weather). To me, this beach / pool tote represents warm sunny days of leisure and fun. Big hat, sunglasses, flip flops, and a good book on my Kindle and I am happy. I love the bright bold Pucci prints but I can’t really wear it without it looking clownish on me, I just can’t pull it off, it is too fussy for me, but a tote I can definitely do and this way I get my Pucci fix without looking like a clown. This giant tote (16.5″ L x 13″ H) is perfect for travel or even the farmer’s market if you’re careful with berry stains. I prefer the east/west totes for the pool and beach because you can fit larger items and can find things easier. Emilio Pucci Print Shopper in Yellow Multi at eluxury for $660.
