Just right for the season is the deep claret of this classic woman's tote from the Duluth Trading Company for $139.50. Made of oiled top-grain leather that looks even better when it's been well-loved and used, it also comes in a rich brown. It zips closed and is great for carrying a Kindle or Nook!
