Balenciaga Cabas Nylon and Leather Tote: Work and Play

Here’s a fun, easy tote that’s equally great for travel and the gym. I just wish it was priced for such casual activities. Coming in at just over a grand, the price of Balenciaga’s new Cabas tote still isn’t bad for what it is, but obviously I’m not going to toss sweaty gym shoes in here.
