Review: Ann Taylor Mini Pebbled Signature Tote & My Latest LOFT Sale Picks

Loving this sheer stripe dress from @loftgirl. (Size 0P pictured.) // Sign up and shop direct links to this look at @liketkit #liketkit
LOFT Sheer Stripe Dress, size 0P
LOFT Post Skinny Belt, size XS/S (runs large)
Louise Et Cie Nerine Heels (runs true to size)

If you follow me on Instagram then you may have seen that I've been carrying this Ann Taylor mini pebbled signature tote nonstop since I got it mid-August. I love the smaller size, it's very well made and holds its shape. It also looks more expensive than what I paid for it. The pretty chain strap (43" total length for a 21.5" drop) is removable and a good length for someone around my height (I'm 5' 2 1/2") when worn as a shoulder bag or cross body. For some reason I personally don't like to wear the bag as a cross body because the strap digs into my chest.

The only improvements I would like to see is if the outer pocket had a magnetic closure to keep the pocket closed. If you put more things in the bag then the outer pocket sticks out like a lip so I've been more mindful of what I pack inside. Finally, for peace of mind, I would prefer a zip top closure when bending over (for fear of small items slipping out), taking public transportation and walking around the city but I suppose that's the trade off for the classic, boxy shape.
