throw it in ze bag



The original Lanvin satin cabas tote is $785.



I made one sort of kind of just like it and it was $10 and about 2 frustrating hours of my life. But mine has mink poms, which is obviously superior to the Lanvin version/everything.





These photos actually make it look better/more functional than it really is. I won't get into details how retarded my hack-sewing job is. I may attempt round deux with a bunch of cream colored satin I was gifted as well.

Either way, oversize shiny yellow tote bag, you are mine!

are you having trouble with it not being very supportive? (the bag) Because duck-backing or another type of heavy canvas material sewn in between the layers of satin before stitching will make it super strong for you.
