Of Leather Bags

A few people have asked, “why spend big money on a leather purse, when I can buy a non-leather look alike for a fraction of the price?”  I always say it comes down to your priorities, your plan for the purse, and how you perceive yourself. Above all, I tell them a good leather purse is an INVESTMENT.  I personally would rather have one solid “knock about”/everyday purse that would hold its shape well, be highly resistant to wear and tear, and still look great as it ages, than a dozen colorful bags that wouldn’t stand the test of time.

 Your Priorities
There will always be something to spend money on, always! We need to ask ourselves “how important is it that I own this leather bag now?” Do I have other pressing needs?  If now is the time for a great leather purse, consider the Palmelatto. This is our best selling purse! It’s classic birkin-like design, beautiful gold hardware, fantastic detailing and finishing,  it is a winner!!

Your plan for the purse
Will this purse be worn every day? occasionally? Special occasions only? Sundays only? For everyday wear, it makes sense to invest in a classic styled sturdy, durable leather purse. One that will hold shape and look great as it ages, and be highly resistant to wear and tear. With purses, nothing ticks me off more that the cracks from wear I see on PVC and PU bags, or when they start to develop funny looking shapes and bulges.  

Where will you be wearing your purse to? As folks say, people get an impression of you before you even open your mouth based on how you put yourself together. For certain interviews, and professional environments, it is important to wear a good leather purse to complement your outfit.

The Palmellato’s classic design is great for everyday wear.   The purse is sturdy, with beautiful delicate details. The Palmellato is large enough to hold everyday items like (novel, journal, cosmetic pouch, mirror, wallet and much more).

 One of the best features of this purse for me is it's cute feet to protect the bottom from everyday wear and tear. And the golden key enclosed in its dainty pouch.


How you perceive yourself
Every one of us has something we absolutely love, and seek opportunities to splurge on. That is why you hear folks say things like “I am a shoe person”, or “I am into sports cars”. For me, I am unabashedly a bag person!! O yes!!  I believe acquiring the right purse is investing in myself.  The Palmellato has not failed me.  Now I am torn between rocking the red Palmellato to work every day till Christmas, and wearing my ever faithful Orione.

How do you feel about investing in a leather purse? Let me know.
God Bless You Always

I hope you are holding up well in the face of Sandy. Please be careful. 

Today we are exploring the Morgana. 

The Morgana is a SUPER SOFT GORGEOUS genuine leather handbag brought to you by Italian designer CARBOTTI! 

This tote handbag is made from buttery soft Italian pebbled leather. It measures a huge 18” (L) x 15” (H). 

The handbag opens with a top zipper and has a full functional front pocket graced by a leather tassel that opens with a magnetic snap. 

There are double non-adjustable straps that measure 14 inches. There is also a 33 inch removable shoulder strap. There is a khaki colored fully lined interior with a zippered back wall pocket on one side and a small open cellphone pocket on the other. 

This handbag has beautiful bright silver toned hardware and a distinct white stitching that gives it a touch of class. This handbag will last a lifetime and retails for $300.00.

As shown in the pictures, this bag can hold a 15inch mac comfortably with lots of extra space. It can be used as a stylish weekender, a school bag, and travel hand luggage. It is very versatile, the color is so pretty and attractive, most of all this is QUALITY at its best!!!!!!!!!

Deconstructing the Carbotti ORIONE ($180)


The purpose of today's post is to give you a full view of the ORIONE.  The ORIONE is made of fine sturdy ribbed calfskin leather. It has gold hardware, and a hanging tag that houses the key to its dainty padlock.

 I own an ORIONE. It is my go-to and everyday purse.  It is stylish, versatile, and large enough to hold all my daily stuff, without being "too big". The color blue is a good drift away from the black and brown bags i typically wear. The best feature of this purse for me is its structure/shape. I love that i can place things in specific areas, and not have to hunt around for them like i do with my faithful MK Skorpios Hobo.

The ORIONE has now replaced my Skorpios as an everyday purse, i feel more organized.  

If you are interested in buying the ORIONE, Please send an email to We will respond within 24hrs with a link to make a payment.  Your purse will be shipped immediately a payment is made. If you live in MD, it may be delivered in person.

Have a blessed week!
