When I saw my friend Annie at church carrying this bag, I squealed with delight. A grown woman, freaking out because of a friend’s bag is a regular occurrence for me. Annie agreed to let me borrow her Love41 Mini Tote in Tobacco for a week or two to try it out. Now that’s a friend! Annie is a mom of three wonderful kids, and she found herself needing a big purse to keep up with them, while still looking fashionable. Annie’s style is similar to mine. Grounded, modest and feminine; I’d say that describes this bag perfectly!
The week I borrowed Annie’s bag went by too quick! I might need to get my hands on one for myself. Maybe we can swap bags for a season? I’ll email Annie 🙂
I love cross-body straps, and this Mini Tote has a wonderful adjustable strap for the tallest woman to the shortest. What amazed me was that I never used the strap! The week I had this bag, I kept grabbing the two large handles and wore the bag in the crook of my arm. This was alarming to me, because I don’t own any bags with this feature. What a wonderful surprise. Buy bag here.
I do own a JW Hulme Mini Excursion in Oxblood. Random thought I know, but it is similar to the Love41 Mini Tote. Because I have all the time in the world (don’t tell my neighborhood spring clean up committee), I created a YouTube Review comparing these two bags. Enjoy!

p.s. Annie is still seen weekly at church sporting this lovely bag. Maybe I’ll keep posting pictures of this bag as it continues to develop a wonderful patina.
p.s.s. Love41 has an amazing company with a mission to help orphaned children and widows in Africa, donating 100% of their profits to those in need. Read more here.
