Recently, I have been finding myself out of the house more days than I am in, which is rare since I’m a bit of a homebody and love working from the comfort of my desk. Also, if you know me at all you would know that I love my tote bags a little too much, although I’ve been attempting to get used to carrying cute little cross-body handbags about town too. Nowadays, whenever I’m about to run out of the house with little time to spare for coordinating outfits, I throw on this handy LaCigaleShop Rubi & Cube tote, which goes with just about anything thanks to its beautiful summery pops of pastel pink and blue and soft leather straps. It is the perfect size that fits all my essentials for an entire day out, and the leather straps are the most comfortable I’ve tried in the entirety of my tote-bag carrying experiences. This is one of the most important elements of a tote in my opinion, since they’re usually laden with anything I can throw inside, and the straps tend to give me a shoulder-ache after a long day. It’s a good thing this one from LaCigaleShop makes me feel like I’m carrying around a giant marshmallow instead. Score.
Rubi & Cube is a French accessory brand dedicated to fine quality and French artisan tradition; soft fabrics and beautiful designs woven together to bring out the most feminine, practical and comfortable bags for the every day like the one I’m carrying. LaCigaleShop’s wide range of their tote bags with varying designs that feature a mix of contemporary and street art are so unique, they are definitely never going out of style. I’m checking them out again when this one wears out.
