I resisted buying the Longchamp Le Pliage tote (available in mini, small, medium, and large) for the longest time; there’s something about shelling out $145 for a nylon bag that was unappealing to me.
My opportunity came when my good friend Magnolia got this bag on sale at Nordstrom’s a few months ago (thanks to Nordies’ formerly indiscriminate pricematching policy), picked up an extra, and passed on the savings to me.
And in owning this bag, I think I finally understand what the fuss was about. It’s light as air and fits just about everything. I do find fault with the fact that it doesn’t fold as small as I would like it to in theory and that it encourages disorganization (the bag has only one giant compartment and one very small pouch that is located too close to the top zipper).

Do you own the Longchamp Le Pliage bag? Do you find it useful?
