I wandered into the Strand to browse for some subway reading and stumbled across totes. I steered clear of the blinding hot-pink bag and checked out classic black with red and white logo. I put the straps over my shoulder, but somehow the bag looked all wrong—it was so new and crisp, when I wanted it to appear worn and used. 828 Broadway, nr. 12th St.; 212-473-1452.
