Looking Back, Looking Forward

Another classic. This striking two-tone leather bag, a beautiful cream and chocolate combination, represents one of those unexpected treasures I found in a local resale shop. The bag is adorned with pockets, two in the front, and two on the side. It is decked with gold hardware including gold oversized rings adjoining the straps. You would find me with this bag in hand often. See a few looks here, here, and here.

    Fantastic bag. Lovin’ the two-toned affect.

    Thanks so much for the comment. I am shaking in my boots, but I’m looking forward to seeing what a good marketing campaign will bring about.

    Great bag Psyche, I like he handle against the white. Antonio Melani is a Dillard’s house brand, they have great quality shoes and bags. You got yourself a real deal!!

    I love contrast trim bags, they’re gorgeous and very chic! Yours is amazing!

    Diva: You are so right. The bag is a great complement to the looks of the season.

    Kat: I found it at the end of last summer, and I love it as much as I did then! It is truly a classic.

    Kira Fashion: Agreed!

    Nywele and Seeker: I was lucky to find this one. Of course, I was in the store at opening, so this had to be an item bought (from a customer selling) the day before.

    Enc: And, it so does 🙂

    Cheryll Lynn: I love most things that have a two-toned effect.

    I do wish you all the best with the exciting transition you are making!

    Budget Chic: True. I was not familiar with the brand when I made the purchase. And, I hate to buy anything without knowing all the details about it. In Rag-O-Rama, however, inventory disappears so quickly that you don’t have time to go home and research. I could see that the bag was crafted beautifully…great finishing. So, I took a leap.

    Monica: Lucky. Lucky. That sounds like quite the collection!

    Secretista: Right! I’ve been wearing yellow gold a lot lately. And, this is tad anal, but I like the hardware on my bags (especially bags filled with grommets etc) to match my jewelry.

    Imelda Matt: I’m always on the hunt!

    Danz: Contrast trimming is so sophisticated.
