I haven't actually got one but it's at the top of my wishlist. I took a careful look at them when I was in the store the other day, and I think that they're gorgeous.
As much I love leather bags, there is something about a charcoal colored wool with dark brown leather trim handbag that thrills me! It's casual enough that it can be worn during the day yet so versatile it can easily be brought into the night. In my opinion, it reaches the unique factor without it falling out of trend. It's so unique in fact that I haven't see that many handbags that use this type of garment.
Which, is probably for that very reason, because this handbag is awful when it comes to durability. One day after its purchase, it broke!
Now I'm never the kind to carry a lot of heavy items, because I hate that, I'd rather go purseless. Unfortunately, it was the one day I had to bring my laptop in for one of my classes. As sad as I was, I loved the comfort and style of that bag. Thank goodness it was only $48!
Suggestions: If you are a high school student, leave your dozens of notebooks and heavy Math and Biology textbooks in your locker.
For everyone else, carrying anything else in this handbag other than your wallet, a small notebook, a lipstick, a pen, your iPod and a stick of gum would probably be the limit if you want this bag to last for more than a day.
