What Must I Own from L.L. Bean?

Alright friends, I need your help. Through a variety of circumstances, I ended up with a whole lot of credits and gift cards to L.L. Bean, some of which have to be used in the next couple weeks, and I'm trying to decide what to get.

I am definitely getting these boots, which should help me survive winter in Western New York, which is basically the Great White North. At this point, I don't think I've worn anything other than my Hunter wellies and Frye boots since November, so something insulated and tall is definitely the way to go. I know I've been talking about these boots forever, but I'm really doing it this time!


I have a tote bag obsession, which has garnered me the lovely moniker "Bag Lady," so I am  going to get a Boat and Tote, but the question is, do I go with classic canvas strap or the leather handles? I'm also contemplating a full monogram versus the single initial because, quite frankly, I have a really unbalanced monogram (jLw...although I suppose I could also do JWL). Advice and/or opinions?


 Also on my list are these heels, which are 1. adorable, and 2. on sale.

So tell me, is there anything I MUST own from L.L. Bean? What are your favorite bean products? Maybe a pair of slippers?

  5. I've had my LL Bean slippers (they're like little suede elf shoes) for 5 years and they look virtually brand new. Loving those pumps, too!

  6. I think JWL would look fine on a tote bag with the classic canvas straps--they're pretty unisex so a unisex monogram would look great on them. My favorite LL Bean items are their silk long underwear tops and their flannel shirts. Their so warm.

  10. I love the LL Bean slippers, so warm and cozy. Also I love the bag with the leather handles because it's dressier than the traditional tote. I like the capital JWL or just the J!

  13. Perfect picks--those heels!!! I have the 8" Bean boots and love them and the leather-handled tote has been on my wishlist for a while. The Scotch plaid shirts and Norwegian crewneck sweaters and classic. Also love the duffel coats! Apparently I spend too much time on their website :)

  17. My advice is to try on their boots. A few years ago I got Bean Duck Boots for Christmas after much begging. They are SO WIDE. When I returned them and proceeded to try on every pair in the store, the sales person said that they were never really intended to be worn by women. Women wore them so they obvi started marketing to them, but they are pretty much unchanged from the men's sizes. I love those tall boots though. As they are new, they might not be as wide. I need to go try them on...

  18. I think the monogramed tote is a must (I've had mine for years). But I also love the shoes!

  21. I've been wanting some classic 6" bean boots for a couple of years now - I wish that they'd get their act together and start shipping to/selling in the UK!
