The Bag To Have: Lauren Merkin Cassie Beach Tote

The beach is whispering your name...can you hear it?! No? Okay, just play along!

Pick up this fabulous Lauren Merkin Cassie Beach Tote, $195, throw on your cool one-piece swimsuit, and get moving. Not only is this tote great because it has room to fit everything in it, it's also pretty darn cute on the arm. It comes in several colors (yellow, black, off-white) and serves double duty as a city tote. The price is not half bad, either.

What really makes this bag worthy of our time is the gold leather trim. Without it, it would look just like any old beach tote. So even if you still can't hear the water whispering your name, buy this beauty and be prepared to be the talk of the town, er, beach.

cute, but not worth the big bucks, even with the gold leather trim.

The price isn't half bad!??! If it was $40 then mabye, but $195 for that? I'm with the rest that say they would buy a beach tote at Target.

I agree - it's cute but not worth the price. Beach totes are supposed to be tossed on the sand and packed with wet bathing suits without worry of damaging an expensive bag! I'll go with a Target bag for the beach and save my money for a nice bag that I can show off around town without fear of saltwater damage!

It's cute, but I wouldn't pay more than about $50 for it.

Very ordinary looking . There are stylish and nice-looking durable totes than that one and priced cheaper. That looks ugly

IMO, $195 is way too much for a simple tote. There are really hot Devi Kroell for Target beach bag/city bag totes in gold python print, for $29-49. That's more the price range I'd be willing to pay for a beach bag!

$195 you guys are right---WAY too expensive for the beach! I would die if it got dirty lol! It is cute, but kinda not very eye popping for that price!
