Who doesn’t love a bag that offers versatility, can carry all your essentials, and looks great?
That’s why shoppers are raving about a faux leather reversible tote from Nordstrom that's essentially two purses for the price of one.
In Canada, the Street Level Faux Leather tote bag comes in two colour combinations — taupe and ivory and black and leopard. In the U.S., shoppers have the additional option of black and cognac tote.
Each bag is made of soft faux leather and comes with a matching zip wristlet for extra organization.
Not only is the bag spacious enough to fit a laptop, wallet, phone and more, it also won’t break the bank — it's available for $59 CAD/$49 USD.
What shoppers are saying about the reversible tote
With nearly 2,000 reviews, the majority of shoppers are praising this reversible tote.
One reviewer says it’s their new favourite bag.
"A bag that can change to either black or cognac (two staple neutral tones) is like a dream come true for me," one shopper wrote.
Another shopper called it the "perfect tote, writing “I absolutely love this tote bag and its price point.
"It’s sturdier than I thought it would be […] highly recommend,” they continue.
“I use this bag on my commute every day – I throw in my heels, my lunch and frankly whatever else I want […] it’s big enough for really anything,” another review says.
Other reviewers pointed out how well the bag holds up over time.
“I purchased the bag back in 2016 […] fast forward to 2021 and I’m still using this bag daily," wrote a reviewer. "For $50 (USD) you really can’t beat the price and quality."
However, despite the positive reviews, some shoppers pointed out that the bag does have a distinct smell when just out of the package.
“There is a slight smell when you first get the tote, but I stuffed it with a couple of dryer sheets and left it open to air out. The smell was gone in a day or two,” one person wrote.
“Only down side is the fishy smell but it goes away,” echoed another reviewer.
Finding a "perfect" bag isn't easy — but Nordstrom shoppers have found one that comes pretty close with the Street Level Faux-Leather Reversible Tote.
With its neutral colours, size and two-in-one versatility, shoppers say it’s a “sturdy bag” that’s “worth the money.”
However, as some shoppers have noted, you might notice an unpleasant smell when you first open the packaging. We'd suggest airing it out for a couple of days before returning — especially since there's no time limit to return an item to Nordstrom.
