Review: Longchamp Le Pliage Expandable Travel Tote


For this week's handbag chit chat, I have a quick review for you. I meant to get this post up before the holidays but couldn't find time to do so. I purchased this tote several months ago and have been enjoying it. Outfit details: J.Brand leggings | Longchamp tote | Quay sunglasses | Shein coat | J.Crew gloves *tech-friendly* | GAP linen tee | Nine West boots


My very first Longchamp purchase was this tote. After using it for almost 3 years as a diaper bag, I decided to find a new home for it and used the money towards this new purchase. I was looking for something that is durable and can be used as a weekend bag. This tote exceeds all my expectations. Staying true to the brand values, the bag is extremely sturdy, well constructed and will last a good long time. What I love about this bag is the expandable option. It can be folded neatly and laid flat to fit into your luggage when travel. It makes the perfect gym bag when it isn't expanded. The expandable option is perfect for longer trips or when you need some extra space. It is like having a 2-in-1 bag.


The strap is very comfortable to wear and does not slip off my shoulder. However, it's not adjustable. I wish the strap can be extended to use as a crossbody. The leather handles are thick and the hardware is minimal but substantial. The material is water resistant so you don't have to worry about ruining it in snow or rain. This tote is available in a range of colors but I went with the boring black. No compartments inside other than a small pocket for your phone. It does make it a bit touch to find things but I can't say enough good things about this bag and wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone.
