I've recently come to an important conclusion: I'm a tote hoarder. Look into my closet, under my desk, and even under the kitchen sink, and you'll find them. Living in New York, I find this simple bag to be indispensable. It's what I carry running errands on the weekend. It holds my gym clothes when I'm running from a Spin class to the office. But when I finally came to acknowledge my own obsession, I started to look around me and think about the totes women wear. Suddenly I realised that while they're so common, a simple canvas tote can say a lot about us.
