Tory Burch Ella Tote: Preloved But I’m Loving It!

Tory Burch Ella Tote

I’ve been eyeing on the Tory Burch Ella Tote for quite sometime last year. However, I am not willing to spend Ten Thousand Pesos or more just for a bag that I might just lost interest on. Hence, I turned to the world of preloved items.

I bought this Tory Burch Ella Tote only two weeks before Christmas as a gift (an excuse I always use to justify my splurges) to myself. I got it from an online seller I found in Carousell. She said it’s authentic; I would like to believe.

Prior to the purchase, I propounded several “interrogatory” questions to the seller:

“Is this authentic or replica only?”

“Where did you buy this?”

“Why are you selling this?”

“Do you still have the tags or receipts of this bag?”

Well, according to the seller, this Ella Tote I bought from her was to given to her by her in-laws from the United States. This explains why the bag has no tags or receipts with it. It has YKK zipper and has certain striking differences from a replica one. The fact that it was allegedly bought from the U.S. somehow gave the seller a valid “alibi”. Good thing, upon authenticating it with friends who have the same tote, the bag turned out to be authentic or original.

Yes, it is the real thing.

I love how this Tory Burch Ella Tote looks and feels. As far as I’m concerned. The nylon is soft and you know it is the authentic one because the material it has is not as stiff as those of replica bags. Also, the bag has an insanely large capacity. As one of the ladies of would say, “You can literally fit a cat” in it!

Later, should I squeeze it in my tight work and law school schedule, I’ll upload a what’s-in-my-bag video to let you know about my thoughts on it.

But for now, I took the liberty to take photos of this bag in various angles. This way, I could give you a detailed look of how this fabulous bag looks:
