Just like so many other black tote bags in history, the Longchamp Le Pliage Tote has warmed its way into the minds, hearts and souls of fashion and culture for decades. On the arms of celebrities like Meghan Markle and in the hallways of every high school, there the Longchamp Le Pliage was.

If you’ve ever considered investing in one but never got around to it (or were a teen and just couldn’t afford one like me), I have some good news: Nordstrom Rack has marked down the iconic tote by 30%, meaning you can own the bag for less than $100.

The simple nylon tote with embossed leather can fold up to a fraction of its size. Its everyday elegance and versatility mean you can use this for work, travel or just everyday wear. The water-resistant material is an added bonus, considering most designer bags do not fare well in the rain.

Shoppers and all of my blessed friends through the years have said that it can truly fit everything you need, from your laptop to the three half-full packs of gum. One reviewer even wrote: “Such a wonderful, classic, timeless bag. Fits so much, with very well-made straps that feel secure to hold whatever you’re carrying in it.”
