Hi Lovelies,

This bag was featured on a previous post, but I realized that I never gave it the attention it fully deserves. I purchased this bag in the San Lorenzo leather market on one of the last couple of days during my stay in Italy and I absolutely love it. It is genuine leather and buttery soft. It's is big enough to hold all of my essential stuff, a book or two (to read on the train going to work,) plus a couple of odds and ends items yet, at times, it's actually too big - it does take me a while to find my keys and phone when I'm in a rush. I have a lot of black bags at home (granted, they aren't real leather) so I wanted to go for a different color. What was most important for me, however, is that the bag should be a classic staple that I would wear season after season. This Italian leather one will see me for many summer's to come as well as helping me transition from summer to fall and spring to summer. 

Wishing you all a very lovely day!
Eternally yours,

Italy has the most gorgeous purses. I got one that I love in Cortoza.

Love bags that are classical and with a good shoe/leather person can last years and get better with wear.

happy belated birthday! And the bag is lovely - I always think a brown like that (or even darker) goes with any outfit :)

What a great bag! The color is a good neutral and the leather looks so supple.
