For many years now, I had been majorly fangirling over the Barrington Gifts merchandise. More specifically, the Barrington Gifts tote bags. But, I could not justify their hefty price tags until this summer when I *yes, finally* decided to take the plunge and purchase one of their coveted totes for myself as a graduation gift! Today, I am going to be sharing my thoughts on the Barrington Gifts St. Anne Tote and reviewing it, in case you’re interested in buying one for yourself.

Barrington Gifts St. Anne Tote Review
Just for a bit of background information, Barrington Gifts provides personalized craftsmanship, innovative designs, and every product is made from luxury materials and has done so for 25+ years. Every product on the Barrington Gifts site is personalized and customized to the consumer’s liking. Let me just tell y’all, I LOVED getting to use the site’s customizer to customize my tote. The best part?! Every product is customized using their customizer AND their products are made at an affordable cost to the consumer, especially for what you’re getting! Along with tote bags, Barrington Gifts carries duffel bags, wallets, travel accessories, and men’s accessories as well. Now, when I say affordable, I do not mean going into your local Walmart or Target and finding comparable prices on the Barrington Gifts website. But, I mean the affordability for a handbag that includes personalization and extensive luxury craftsmanship. I mean, that customizer though makes it so worth it!
The St. Anne Tote bag comes in a zippered and un-zippered style, either with a monogrammed patch or print on it. Depending on which combination you choose (patch and zippered or print and un-zippered, etc.), will determine how much your tote will cost you. The cost ranges from $170-$200. There is even a Diaper Bag in this style, too, at a similar cost. Personally, I chose to go with the St. Anne Tote without it being zippered.
Now, y’all the customizer is AMAZING! You not only get to pick the color and print of your tote, but you also get to select what color and size/style your monogram is too! You can even add a stripe to your tote with your monogram to make it pop, like I did. Lastly, you get to choose the color of your tote’s leather, which is a super unique asset that I have only seen at luxury brands such as Louis Vuitton with their Neverfull tote. The options are endless!
Upon my tote’s arrival, I got many notices from Fedex that I would need to sign a slip to ensure that it arrived safely to me. I truly admire that Barrington Gifts did this for me and I assume all of their customers along with myself. Knowing that my tote would get to me safely made my feel extremely reassured, especially with the growing number of packages stolen in front of people’s own homes these days.
I have owned my St. Anne Tote for almost two months now, and it has been my most-used bag since receiving it! Not only is the tote still looking brand new despite it going EVERYWHERE with me, but it also gives me an extra boost of confidence. I know I am carrying a luxury bag that is uniquely mine, but that I also purchased at a fraction of the cost. My only regret is that I didn’t buy it zippered. Not to fret though, I will probably purchase another Barrington Gifts Tote in the coming times!
Shop the St. Anne Tote!
