Insomniac Sale Picks: Zip-top Tote Bags

*In this late-night feature – which will run on Tuesday and Thursday of each week – I’ll gather up three fun items that are currently on sale online and share them with you! I would LOVE suggestions: Stylish wide-width pumps? Classic v-necked sweaters? Chandelier earrings? Petite dress slacks? What would you like to see featured?*

Betsy requested a few picks for classic tote bags that zip, so here we go:

snakeskin tote bag

Halogen Leather Tote – was $168, now $83.98

I find totes to be SO much easier to manage if they’ve got optional shoulder straps in addition to their handles, so this one caught my eye. Plus the solid black zip pocket you see in front is a removable pouch – how cool is THAT? This tote is nice and roomy at 12.5″ x 11.5″ x 4.5″, and if this version feels too flashy it also comes in black leather with a snakeskin pouch. Like the snakeskin print but want faux leather? This Echo tote also has a zipper top.

nylon zip tote

olivia + joy Zip Zoom Tote – was $98, now $23.99

If you need something that’s bright, easy to clean, lightweight, and vegan-friendly, this nylon tote will be right up your alley. Another roomy option at 13″ x 7″ x 15″, and loaded with organizational pockets. Also available in neon pink, coral, green, navy, turquoise, or tan. The olivia + joy line has some other cute, casual totes, too.


Piel Tablet Shoulder Bag/Cross Body – was $340, now $220.99

Still a splurge, even on sale, but this leather tote is pretty much perfect for work use. It’s got a padded tablet compartment, four large pockets, and a 12″ x 11″ x 4.5″ capacity. Sleek and classic, but utilitarian. Also comes in saddle or chocolate leather. And you can get an extra 15% off when you sign up for eBags’ emails, bringing the price down to $187.84. Or nab it at Amazon for $185.60.

fossil preston tote

Fossil Preston – was $218, now $152.99

At 12″ x 2.5″ x 11″ – but with the ability to expand to 3.5″ wide – this soft tote has plenty of room for your essentials. The design is pared-down, but if you opt for a bold color like this cobalt it’ll be anything but dull. Also comes in red, coral, pale blue, black/print, and classic tan.

Other not-currently-on-sale resources for zip-top tote bags:

  1. eBags – Everything from designer leather to washable nylon.
  2. Amazon – Thousands of options at all price points. This cobalt leather tote is classic.
  3. Nordstrom – A great choice for more upscale totes like this gorgeous Kate Spade Cedar Street Tote.
