Fall colors are abundant in all of the stores. I was recently shopping for some items on people’s Christmas Lists and noticed the beautiful shades of burgundy in all of the departments of the major stores. The rich, full color reminds me of a great glass of wine.
I came across an amazing handbag by Rebecca Minkoff at Nordstrom. The style is the “Regan Satchel” and official color is “Port.” The size of this bag is great as it is not too big and not too small. As the three little bears would say….it is just right! The zippers, long leather decorative strips, and braided handles give this bag a bit of an edge, along the lines of a Balenciaga bag, without that hefty price tag. The hardware and enlarged zipper pulls accentuate the bag even more. I love the practicality of it in that it features a long shoulder strap as well as the shorter handles for the ease of carrying, depending on the weight of the contents of your bag, or just the look you are going for. There is an outside zip pocket, interior zip pocket, and two pouches on the inside of the bag for a cell phone or card case. It can also double as a small work bag because you can easily fit an iPad or small laptop and planner. Yes, I said planner, *gasp*, I still do like to write things on paper and cross them out, but don’t worry, I use my iCalendar too.
I purchased this lovely handbag at Nordstrom and it retails for $325 and is 13″w x 9″h x6″d has a 4″ strap drop; 20″-23″ crossbody strap drop.
