#BagHabit – Goyard St. Louis GM


I have a confession to make – I’m a little bored with neutrals. I won’t say that I’m over them, but I definitely needed a break. Enter the Goyard St. Louis GM – this hot red number is certain to spice up all my outfits this season.


As the go-to tote for busy travelers and stylish moms everywhere, it’s no surprise that this bag is HUGE. I could fit everything I own and my J Crew trench coat in this beauty. Plus, the super-recognizable Goyardine fabric looks and wears like leather - you’d be hard pressed to find a more functional or durable tote. Still, with its hefty price tag, it’s important to know what you’re getting for the cost. That’s why I did a little research for you. Here’s what I found:
