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:

One of the most recognized handbags in the world
Extraordinarily spacious size
Lightweight grab & go design
Detachable pochette is large enough to hold an iPhone 7
Leather handles and piping are of solid craftsmanship, unusually thick, and not easily harmed or stained.
Contrast stitching adds a crisp appearance and sophisticated touch
Like most tote-style handbags, the St. Louis doesn’t hold its structure well
May require an additional bag shaper or organizer for those who prefer firmness
