Back in 2014, reader Missy reached out and asked my thoughts about Dagne Dover bags. To be honest, I had never heard of the brand. I contacted Dagne Dover to see if there would be a time in the future when I could see the bags in person and they offered to send me their Midi Tote to review. I received the bag and fell in love with Dagne Dover. I now own several Dagne Dover bags – their card case, the Midi Tote, large Landon Carryall, Dakota Backpack, Allyn Tote, and the Legend Tote. In fact I have two Legend Totes, and found out they have updated and improved the Legend Tote.
Bag: Legend Tote c/o Dagne Dover | Top: 1.State (old; similar, option that goes up to XXL) | Jeans: Caslon (old; similar, plus size option) | Shoes: Rothy's | Bracelet: Had forever (budget-friendly alternative) | Earrings: Jenny Bird | Lipstick: L'Oreal Riche Matte in Eva's Red
- New lightweight poly lining to lessen the load
- Two additional multi-purpose pockets
- Reengineered coated canvas to hold the shape longer and keep wrinkles at a minimum
- Thinner, longer shoulder straps to make it easier to carry
- A narrower base to allow for easier stowing
What I find to be the same is the gorgeous color, the beautiful exterior, and the amazing functionality. When I was still working in an office on a daily basis, this bag was my JAM. Coworkers were used to seeing it by my side and regularly asked about it because it's just so beautiful and polished looking. I love this bag for travel because it holds so much, it's so easy to find everything, and it looks great as a weekend tote or a business tote. In this bag right now I have my laptop, planner, water bottle, and all my purse essentials and still have room for a sweater, pair of flats, and possibly even my lunch.
I love Dagne Dover bags, but I also love the people who are behind the brand. The three women who started Dagne Dover are some of the most brilliant yet down to earth people I've met through this blog. They've been so great to work with, and so generous. For my blog's 10th anniversary party they provided their card cases for all attendees. And today, they are offering one Wardrobe Oxygen reader their iconic Legend Tote in Dagne Blue! Valued at $265, this is one of the smartest and most stylish bags in my closet and I am so excited that one of you will get to experience and enjoy it!
