I've been on the hunt for a good everyday bag and decided on the Prada Saffiano Tote in Arguilla (a really versatile gray because Jordana would kill me if I bought another black bag). This tote comes in a range of colours and sizes and has a double zip and no zip version. I had my mind set on the double zip (I really like the extra detailing) until I realized that the no zip version is slightly bigger (longer and wider) and is also a bit cheaper. They're sold out just about everywhere but I lucked out by walking into Holt's on the right day and finding the colour and size I was looking for. Shopping fate!

Let me know what you think of the two versions in this style.


  1. I like the look of the double zip and find zippers on bags to be practical but it's also nice that the non zip is longer.

    Congrats on your good shopping date :)

  2. Thanks Samantha :-) The double zip doesn't actually have much function because the pockets are so thin you'd only be able to put a passport or iPad (if you were going to carry something thin but heavy. The non-zip has a magnet closure and zippered pockets inside the bag. I do like how structured it looks with the double zips but I like that the non zip is a bit more casual. They're both so nice!

  3. I like the way the zipper looks but if the unzipped one is more functional I would go with that one. Love the color!

  4. Hi--I have the unzipped version in that same color and love it! Don't get the zipped because you won't be able to fit much and then you just be frustrated. I love mine and get compliments all the time.

    1. Which size do you have? Does it have a removable strap?

  5. Mine doesn't have the removable strap (I think that only comes on the smaller size). Mine is the medium/large size (2nd largest size)
