When I was 20 years old and living in Bordeaux, France, it didn’t take me long to notice that the purse of choice for so many French women was Longchamp. In any and every size. I LOVED them. I bought my first Longchamp – a red pliage –Â and it was a big purchase for my 20 year old self. It was completely worth it though as I have put – and continue to put – that little red pliage to very good use! Since then, I’ve added a few more Longchamp bags to my collection and they continue to be some of my favourites. They’re lightweight, easy to pack, fit all my junk, and they look good with anything. Plus, they’re French. Oui, oui!
