Cotton tote bags are every woman's very public fashion faux pas. We're all guilty of carrying them, all obsessed with their practicality and ALL in denial over just how old and grubby they look... this whole secondary black tote bag trend has completely taken over. Even Lena Dunham is doing it.

Anticipating coffee and a bun on the second morning of the holidays, I was assaulted by the first Back to School display of summer.
