The Tory Burch fashion label (www.toryburch.com), a luxury lifestyle brand, was created in 2004. It’s said that the first flagship store nearly sold out on their opening day. In 2005, Tory Burch was endorsed by Oprah Winfrey on her show. While there are many ways to misspell the brand name, (Tori Burch, Torry Burch…even Tony Burch), I absolutely love the Tory Burch emblem (which is the iconic T-logo) because of its clean timeless design. I’ve been craving the Reva ballet flats for a long time and I adore my Tory Burch Robinson Satchel. If there are ever any Tory Burch sales or coupon codes, I’ll be sure to share those, but in the meantime here are all of my Tory Burch reviews!
5 Tory Burch Reviews since 2010
I was going through my inbox and found this little gold nugget! Can’t believe I didn’t see it until now. Bloomingdale’s is having a friends and family sale now through Monday November 12th. If you’re like me and there’s no Bloomingdale’s store nearby, you can get 20% off your online purchase with promocode HOLIDAYFF.
Here are some cute picks!
I’ve been thinking lately that it would be nice to have something small for just my phone, a couple cards plus ID for when I run out for a quick errand. I love this one!
I love the zippers on the sides of this Kate Spade tote.
This would be cute for carrying your laptop!
And how cute are these funky animal iPhone cases?
Can’t decide which ones cuter. Leaning more towards the kooky owl :]
And check out this super sale!
I love how slim and non-bulky this Cole Haan case is.
And the light gold is so pretty.
Hm, I must be craving some new tech accessories, haha
Can you tell?
Any fun picks for you from the sale? Let me know in the comments below!
Wishing you a wonderful Wednesday morning!
I woke up one morning in love! In love with the Proenza Schouler PS1 bag! Although I’ve seen it around for years, I never thought much of this bag. I’ve always thought that it looks very chic in black but I felt that it wasn’t “me”. That is until I laid eyes on the PS1 medium leather in raspberry. Isn’t it a beauty?
I’ve been looking for a comfortable crossbody bag in a shade of red and I think Raspberry is gorgeous. I want to see it in person since I’ve learned never to trust color shades via computer/laptop screen and I’m extra particular when it comes to red-purple tones. I’m hoping that it leans darker than lighter. This would be the PERFECT accessory for the Fall brightening up any look!
The PS1 in Lipstick is really pretty too!
I like the PS1 in medium (12.5 x 4 x 8.5 inches) but wonder if it’s too small for me since I’m used to carrying much larger bags. Also, I’ve read that the strap on the medium is too short to carry comfortably as a crossbody. The large is 14 x 5 x 11 inches priced at $1,995 and has a longer shoulder strap so that you can comfortably hold crossbody. I’m only seeing the large in Lipstick and not Raspberry on the website.
If you’re like me and find the Proenza Schouler bags quite pricey, I’ve found a cheaper Raspberry alternative! It’s the Tory Burch Robinson Gusset Crossbody Bag!
Tory Burch Robinson Gusset Crossbody Bag in Raspberry $450
The size is similar at 12 x 4.25 x 9 inches
What do you think? Do you like the Raspberry shade better or Lipstick? Or considering the price difference, would you get the Tory Burch Robinson Triple Gusset instead?
Wishing you a wonderful start to the week!
Good morning Everyone!
Did you hear the news?? You’re gonna flip!

UPDATE from my Tory Burch Robinson crave post!!
So I HAD to buy both bags in order to do a good comparison. Since my local Nordstrom did not carry either of the bags, I had to order both online. The Tory Burch Robinson Double Zip tote was purchased on Bloomingdales during their friends and family sale and the Robinson Satchel was purchased on the official Tory Burch website.
Tory Burch Robinson Satchel purchased from the Tory Burch website -
can I just say, AH-MAZING packaging! Totally made me even more loyal to the brand!
Cute little message- such a nice touch!
Then wrapped in the dust bag in a gorgeous orange/pink
And… TA-DA! Here’s the Robinson Satchel!
Love the Tory Burch emblem in gold
And the inside is blue!
And the bottom view
And here are the couple pictures of the Tory Burch Robinson Double Zip Tote (ordered from Bloomingdales online) that I took.
As you can tell, I was not too impressed hence the lack of photos.
The packaging? A cardboard box with tons of stuffing for protection.
This time the protector came inside bag
Same blue lining inside
Tory Burch packaging > Bloomingdales packaging
AND NOW THE COMPARISON-
Tory Burch Robinson Satchel vs Tory Burch Robinson Tote
As you can see, they are very simliar in style
The Tote is a bit larger but also slimmer
Price? The Satchel is $550 while the Double Zip tote is $575
My ultimate decision was that I went with the Satchel. Why? I think a large factor was that while it is still a pretty heavy bag on its own, it is still LIGHTER than the Double-Zip Tote!
I originally wanted the Double-Zip tote for my ipad/laptop but I couldn’t imagine having to lug all that weight around!
I believe the extra weight comes from the double-zips. Extra layers = extra weight.
I’ve decided to look around for a lighter “work” tote and return the Double-Zip tote.
While Husband told me to keep both bags, I really couldn’t justify owning two that are THAT similar.
In the end, I LOVE my Tory Burch Robinson Satchel. The quality is amazing and I’m definitely a loyal for life!
Looking forward to more Tory Burch products to review for you,
So I’ve been trying to decide on what new bag that I want for my belated birthday present from the Hubs. My eyes are on the Tory Burch Robinson satchel and Tory Burch Robinson tote (double zip). Both are top handles but also come with a longer strap for cross-body use. I love the Robinson line from Tory Burch. The material feels and looks great and is also very scratch resistant. Either way, I’m excited for my very first Tory Burch bag.
If you’ve already noticed, the Tory Burch double zip tote is VERY similar to the Prada double zip tote. I’ve been eyeing that one for a while now BUT it’s nearly 2K while Tory Burch is only $575. I like that I’ll be able to use it for every day use and I can stick my laptop in it if I want to go to a cafe/bookstore.
Is anyone else super excited for the Hunger Games movie? I was obsessed with the series once I discovered it about a year ago. I’m so glad that I was a late reader- I don’t know if I could have waited for each book to come out. I think I finished the series in about a week. My co-worker was telling me about how a line of Hunger Games nail polish came out so I had to look it up. Good job China Glaze for growing their brand/business through this book!
I love seeing how books are translated into successful movies and other business ventures. For example, Harry Potter did a good job of capturing an audience of people who did not read the books. Also, Harry Potter Land?? Twilight, on the other hand, could have been so much better! I could go on and on about how I would have done things differently to capture another market of fans BUT I won’t bore you…
Anyway, I hope you’ve been having a great month and can wake up with a BEAUTYFULL smile tomorrow.
[UPDATE] – I just posted an official review of both bags. Check out my Tory Burch Robinson Double Zip Tote VS Robinson Satchel review!
