Bag Baby : Prada Large Calfskin Framed Tote

February 25, 2012

I received numerous inquiries about this particular bag in the last few weeks so I thought I would dedicate a post to it.

In the future, if you see something in an outfit photo that you would like to know more about, just email me. I don't always respond in a timely manner but I will try my best.
I am by no means an expert on Prada bags but have started to read up on them since acquiring this bag. The only other Prada bag I own is a nylon backpack passed down to me from my mom so please share with me your experiences in the comments below. 

This particular style was available in argilla (taupe gray, as pictured) and nero (black). Some features that appealed to me were the gold-toned hardware, detachable shoulder straps, the inner pockets, and the size. 

I like the versatility that a bag with both handles and shoulder straps offers. Most bags I own have silver hardware so the gold hardware is a nice (albeit dressier) change. It also measures 12 inches tall, 15 inches wide, and 7 inches deep which is the perfect size for a petite person who likes big bags.
The bag retailed for $2295 but I got mine on sale for a little over $1400. Unlike brands like Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Dior, etc., Prada bags do get discounted so their resale value tend to be low. I personally wouldn't have paid full price for this bag and would encourage you to wait for a sale. Prada is typically included in department store gift card events so keep your eyes peeled for those saving opportunities.
I am generally a fan of this bag. If I had a bone to pick I would say the calfskin is fragile, in that they are susceptible to fingernails and pointed objects, and marks show up even on the black bag. I also don't like that the bag doesn't have a top zipper. Aside from these small inconveniences, I have been loving this bag.
The bag fits everything except my work laptop (which is a monstrosity that won't fit in any bag except my nylon laptop bag) and isn't too heavy even with all of my everyday essentials packed inside. 
It went on sale a few weeks ago so I don't imagine it is still available through a department store. At this point, I would encourage you to seek out outlet stores (both Prada and department store outlets) or discount retailers like TJMaxx (only runway stores will likely carry premier designers like Prada) if you are interested in buying it.
What bag do you use for work? What criteria do you use when you shop for the perfect work bag?
